A modest bachelor brunch devolves into a wild weekend in Bangkok when the gang travels to Thailand to see Stu get married. Still traumatized by memories of the Las Vegas fiasco, Stu (Ed Helms) vows to keep his pre-wedding partying to the bare minimum. But when Phil (Bradley Cooper), Doug (Justin Bartha), and Alan (Zach Galifianakis) show up, Stu's low-key brunch makes their previous Vegas fiasco look like a family trip to Disneyland. The Hangover Part II features cameos by Bill Clinton and Paul Giamatti. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Disappointed. Obviously not as good as the first. Living in Hollywood, every street corner and bus stop had an ad for this movie. The hype was huge and I was really looking forward to it.
The movie is pretty much recycled material from the first. The movie was a little predictable, badly written and seemed rushed. I think they would have benefited from spending an extra few months working on the storyline.
I am a huge fan of the first movie and set my expectations high. Don't get me wrong the movie isn't terrible. It passes 2 hours of time, but is not a classic like the first.
Very disappointed in this movie. Love all the actors, but they weren't given much to work with. Seems like the writers tried to compensate for the lack of originality and a great script by being raunchy and crude. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't offended by anything I saw. I just found it quite boring. Laughed maybe 2 or 3 times the entire movie. Also, didn't like the fact the the character of Alan (Zach Galifinakis) was completely annoying, mean, and really didn't give us any reason to like him in this film. At least in the first one he was a lovable idiot.
The setup is the same, but the hilarity is far more present in this one than the first. The comedy is a more raunchy and I think there were more laugh out loud parts than in the first one. Mr. Chow and the monkey steal the show. Cannot wait for the third movie.
Not as good as the first one by any means. However, it is still good for a laugh and some gross out humor. 3 stars was the best rating I could give based upon the contrived storyline. It worked once very well, but doesn't do the trick the second time around. I see "Mr. Chow" getting his own spin off in the near future.
It's funny but as everyone else has said, it is the exact same movie!! Bummed that the writers weren't creative, as there was absolutely no surprise this time around. Still worth watching if you liked the first one. Definitely a few laughs.
