The scene in The Hangover depicts the road represents freedom like Eyerman talks about in his journal article. As the wolf pack heads to Vegas for a bachelors party weekend, the landscape is open and wide contrasting to the tall, congested cities the character left behind. The lighting also supports the freedom ideal. During the clip, the wolf pack drives towards the sunny west. The brightness represents hope and freedom which they plan on attaining for the weekend. Alan symbolizes the freedom of the road when he stands up and has the wind blowing through his hair screams freedom. They are free to drive wherever they please and do whatever they want. They are free from women, their jobs and all worries. The wolf pack is headed toward a weekend of drinking, drugs, gambling and shenanigans. All four of the those ideas are rooted in freedom.
