The Hangover Part II (2011)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: A crueler, darker, raunchier carbon copy of the first installment, The Hangover Part II lacks the element of surprise -- and most of the joy -- that helped make the original a hit.


Movie Info

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

Critic Reviews for The Hangover Part II

All Critics (233) | Top Critics (45)

Raunchy and unfunny, this sequel feels like a simple retread of its predecessor.

If you love the first film, seriously, do not see this one. You'll ruin two movies at once.

Deadspin

The cast is once again at the top of their game and there are some genuinely hilarious moments, but on the whole, The Hangover Part II is way too similar to the first film to be enjoyable.

The Hangover: Part II shows the writers have absolutely no faith in their characters or their own ability to take them somewhere new.

Overall, your enjoyment of this film will correlate directly to your enjoyment of the previous film. If you liked it, you'll like this one, if not, you won't enjoy the sequel as it's just more of the same.

I think the first one is like GONE WITH THE WIND compared to this tired old turd.

Audience Reviews for The Hangover Part II

Just because a sequel uses the same formula as its predecessor, it doesn't mean that it's the same movie. If you like these characters and the general idea, you're going to love it's more deranged second entry. What is most important for a comedy is the actual comedy; which is just as effective, if not more so than the original. Shenanigans don't even come close to the bizarre and demented occurrences that the Wolfpack experience. The level of destruction that occurs is so hilarious that you can't even explain it in words. I think the chemistry between Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms has only gotten stronger in the two years since the first. Pretty much any joke attempted had me laughing really hard and this movie accomplishes everything it sets out to do. It really is extremely fun and in my opinion matches up to the reputation it etablished the first time around. Anyone who complains about this has only themselves to blame because you should know exactly what you're getting into from the previews and interviews. I honestly don't think you could call it The Hangover if it wasn't about a bunch of guys getting messed up and not remembering the night before.

Bangkok? Well the pacts did another crazy thing as the first movie.. The same formula was used here and for me it just as same as the first movie, they just need a better twist.. Overall, I'm not that impressed with this sequel..

There's little to say about it that hasn't been said: where the first movie was fresh and full of surprises, the second followed the template EXACTLY, to the point that you knew the jokes before they arrived, and when they did, they couldn't shock you, all the sting had been taken out of them. It proves that all the first movie did was unearth a formula: five minutes into this one, when one character is discovered to be missing (again), you hear the line "Did anyone check the roof?", and you know it's already gotten as funny as it's going to get. Of course a third movie was made (and sold huge), but as a one-off, The Hangover could have become a classic; with the sequels, it's exposed itself as a laugh-by-numbers project and the legacy will be forever diminished.
