Bangkok has them now.
Stu (Ed Helms) learned his lesson after the gangs first hangover and urges the wolfpack to have a nice and simple brunch at IHOP before his wedding with Lauren (Jamie Chung) in Thailand. Once in Thailand though, Phil (Bradley Cooper) persuades Stu to at least have a couple of beers and even suggests they bring Teddy (Mason Lee), Lauren’s 16 year old brother, along to reassure him. Of course, nothing goes according to plan and the guys wake up in the middle of Bangkok, Alan (Zach Galifianakis) lost his hair, they now have a monkey and Teddy is nowhere to be found.
Everyone is asking if this much anticipated comedy will be better than the first. We all know that more often than not, sequels don’t beat the original. The Hangover Part II though, will be giving The Hangover a run for its money. I personally enjoyed both and can’t pick a favorite. One thing is for sure, it’s too soon to name it comedy of the year, but it will be the best comedy of the summer and you won’t be disappointed.
Phil, Stu, Alan, Doug and, our favorite gangster, Mr. Chow are back and surpass their already memorable performances from The Hangover. Here’s a bit of what you can expect (without any spoilers): They meet a drug dealing monkey, Stu still has an attraction for strippers, Monks take their vows seriously, Alan goes for the shaved head look and Stu proves that Mike Tyson is not the only one that can pull of his tattoo. Overall, the humor and laughs never stop. Although this time, the comedy is a little more daring and raunchy than the first. But whether that is good or
bad is up to you to decide. Bottom line: The Hangover Part II is a must-see.
The Hangover Part II is in theaters this Thursday, May 26.
It is rated R for strong language and sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use and some brief violent images. Running time is around 1 Hr 42 minutes.
