The Hangover Part II


The Hangover Part II

Critics 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 (240) | Top Critics (53)

  • 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.

  • Unless moviegoers themselves are willing to shoulder some of the blame, it's useless to try and figure out why The Hangover Part II is so bad. The film only exists because, after the hilarious 2009 movie broke box-office records for an R-rated comedy...

    Jun 8, 2011
  • The Hangover Part II isn't a dud, exactly -- some of it is very funny, and there are a few memorable jolts and outlandish dirty moments. But it feels, at times, like a routine adventure film set overseas.

  • The Hangover Part II sees the same ingredients shaken up in the kaleidoscope, but a less attractive and far less amusing pattern emerges.

  • The missing person, the seamy urban setting, the gradual accretion of clues: The Hangover films are, essentially, hard-boiled crime stories spun into comic depravity.

  • I can't dismiss the ugliness behind many of its antics.

Audience Reviews for The Hangover Part II

A pathetic excuse for a sequel, actually more of a lazy rehash than anything else. Everything is so boring and predictable, the jokes are disgusting and not at all funny, and Zach Galifianakis is absolutely unbearable. But at least it has Ed Helms.

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.
