Initially, we see the Warner Bros Pictures and Legendary Pictures logos, this is placed at the start of the film so the audience know who owns the film. The director also smartly places his name at the end to make sure that the audience remember the person who made the film. The brief scene (which appears between 00:24 and 02:01) gives a suggestion what the movie is about. The first 15 seconds of the scene shows flowers, cake and a wedding dress, this instanly creates an impression that the wedding is linked to the main storyline.

The scene then gives a doubt to the audience about whether the wedding will actually take place. There are couple of indicators which suggest that it will not - the repetitive phone calls which are not answered and the fact they only have 5 hours to arrive at the wedding.

Furthermore, the audience also get to know why the film is called 'The Hangover', they are hangover after their bachelor party.
