In The Hangover Part II, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) 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. — (C) Warner Bros
I most certainly enjoyed the comeback of the wolfpack. The Part 2 is pretty much a carbon copy of Part 1, so I don’t really get the need of calling it part 2 hehehe, but so what? It made me laugh more than I did in the first film. Plus, I loved that they were able to capture the beauty and radiance of Thailand and contrast it with the darkness and seediness of its capital. When I go to Bangkok next year, I am soooo going to explore it heavily.
The Hangover Part 2, imho, is also raunchier than the first. The part when Stu discovered what happened to him and yet another prostitute, was expected (for me, at least) but hilarious. But not as hilarious as seeing the reaction of my movie buddy who almost choked on his popcorn because of his somewhat belated realization of that scene. :p
As for the characters, Phil is still my 2nd favorite, not because he’s the 2nd funniest but because he’s the 2nd cutest and I’m superficial like that. I liked the parts when Stu was being a sissy and when Alan was acting like a bitchy retard. As usual, Doug’s negligible. And as usual, the flashy, unlikely gangster Mr. Chow did not fail to impress with his comedic prowess.
Who’s the cutest you ask? The monkey, of course! Yes, there is a monkey again. Like I said, the film’s xeroxed. Thus, the line “I can’t believe this is happening again!” was said over and over again.
Watch The Hangover Part 2, it’s sure to make you laugh your ass off and wonder about stuff that has something to do with the ass. HAHAHA! Anyway, you have been warned not to expect something fresh, so be a good viewer and just enjoy this dirty comedy. It’s R-18, btw.
Watch out for the monk and how the bride’s lost brother lost one of his body parts!
And of course, enjoy Alan’s gift to the bride and groom!
Happy weekend, everyone! 😉
