Plays like a real hangover...it's fun getting it, but you regret it the next morning.
The Hangover 2 is almost an exact copy of the first film, with a new location and a slightly higher shock value of course. The boys are headed to Stu's wedding in Bangkok, but of course they get drugged again, wake up with all sorts of problems, and have to solve the puzzle of what happened.
There is nothing really wrong with this movie other than the fact that we've see it before. You can tell they went with the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach. The main difference I noticed was the much darker vibe and it's less fun because of it.
Still, the cast is good all around, with Zach Galifianakis still providing most of the laughs with his weird humor, and there are more than a few moments that had my whole theater cracking up really loud. I know it's going to make a ton of money (I just saw it has already made over $60 million in two days) and I do recommend it if you liked the original, but I don't think we need a third Hangover.
