Raunchy and unfunny, this sequel feels like a simple retread of its predecessor.
| Original Score: 2.0/5
If you love the first film, seriously, do not see this one. You'll ruin two movies at once.
| Original Score: D+
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.
| Original Score: 6/10
The Hangover: Part II shows the writers have absolutely no faith in their characters or their own ability to take them somewhere new.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
I think the first one is like GONE WITH THE WIND compared to this tired old turd.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Visually dazzling, well shot and perhaps richer in character than the first film -- but also nowhere near as clever, refreshing or funny.
| Original Score: 7/10
It is the epitome of lazy Hollywood filmmaking.
| Original Score: C+
There are one or two good jokes and the cast is mainly likeable but the rest of the material is so predictable and tawdry that the entire film becomes something of a chore
...almost the same gang of dimwits are up to the same shenanigans, with Thailand substituting for Vegas.
| Original Score: 3/10
The guys are just as clueless after a wild night on the town, but getting lost amid the goggle-bright lights of Las Vegas seems like a fairground ride compared to Bangkok.
| Original Score: 3/5
One drink too many, The Hangover Part II relies too much on its talented cast and not enough on the laughs.
This is not a case of imitation being the sincerest form of flattery-it is indolent narcissism of the most nauseating kind.
| Original Score: 4/10
More a horror than a comedic film, as if Todd Phillips is making a kind of "Heart of Darkness" argument with Bangkok as his backdrop.
If you can look past the fact that this film is closer to a remake than a sequel, it's an enjoyable way to spend an hour and a half. Might not be original, but it's still funny.
...as needless a contemporary sequel as one can easily recall...
It might not be quite as much fun as the first film but it's fun enough - and that's all that counts. Plus, there's a monkey in it.
"It happened again." That's the opening gambit of The Hangover: Part II, but sadly the same can be said of the franchise.
| Original Score: 1/5
If you liked The Hangover, you're going to like The Hangover Part II because it is the same movie.
| Original Score: B plus
Hangover 2 far too Familiar
| Original Score: 2.5/4.0
