Movie Review: The Hangover II (2011)

Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.  Released: May 26th 2011

Stars: Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms

My Review:

The hangover 2, will it be as good as the first one? that was the question everyone is wondering.  The first one was such a huge success that I was nervous they would ruin it by making a second one.  I would say they half got it right.  It wasn’t as good as the first one but it was still a pretty good movie.  I wasn’t disappointing with how the story played out and it is really funny.  This time around Ed Helms is getting married and they all decided not to drink anything that Zach Galifinakis gives them but that doesn’t stop them all from waking up the next morning, having no clue as to where they are or what has happened.  The three of these guys together makes for a really funny comedy.  The best part is we get a lot more from Ken Jeong, who plays Mr. Chow.  He is a really fun character and I wish we could have seen more of him in the first one.   I wouldn’t recommend that you see this movie until you’ve seen the first.  There are some references in the movie that you may not understand unless you’ve seen the first hangover movie.

My Rating: A-
