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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

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

Sluggish, erratic attempt to duplicate the first, better movie.

How much you'll go for it depends on whether, like our beleaguered comrades, you partake in a tipple before seeing it...

It feels less like The Hangover Part II than it does like The Hangover 2.0, as if Phillips were trying to go back and make the first film funnier instead of making a new one.

The Hangover: Part II feels more like a Bangkok tourism project pitched at rapey frat boys.

The Hangover made the actors A-list Hollywood stars. But despite the indisputable talent of this cast, The Hangover Part II doesn't deliver the same zany punch of its predecessor.

Well, it's not as good as the original movie. It is darker and harsher in tone and the comedy is more cruel. It's also cruder.

Missing is the deliriously unpredictable inventiveness of the first film, replaced by variations on its most memorable bits.

Every time a character in this follow-up groans "I can't believe this is happening again", you can only nod forlornly in agreement.

The result is a cinematic illustration of the law of diminishing returns, in which more money, more exotic locales, more crazy situations and more Mike Tyson all fuel a familiar carnival of abasement.

Trade out Las Vegas for Bangkok, a tiger for a monkey, a lactating hooker for a trannie stripper, a missing tooth for a face tattoo, and you've got Todd Phillips's rote, dispiriting replica of his own surprise smash hit.

Can't justify essentially reenacting, beat for beat, the plot of its predecessor.

Tasteless, pointless, tactless and pretty much anything else you care to stick the '-less' suffix on.

The lads in the "Hangover" "wolfpack" seem a tad winded, this time around. From concept to execution, "Hangover Part II" has a "been there, done that, jailed for it" feel.

...director Todd Phillips wrongly seems to think he can solve any problem with more mayhem. How about better jokes instead?

"It happened again." That's the opening gambit of The Hangover: Part II, but sadly the same can be said of the franchise.

A tasteless, preposterous and ultimately pointless tale of east meets west which lurches from one improbable set piece to the next including the bizarre concealment of a dead body and a high-speed car chase.
