The Hangover Part II

Rated 3.0

This time around, the guys head to Thailand for Stu’s (Ed Helms) wedding. Apparently he’s met a sweet little thing (Jamie Chung) and they’re tying the knot on the beach where her parents live. The whole Hangover crew is back, and it seems dentist Stu learned his lesson about bachelor parties after Vegas and his only intention is to have one beer with his buddies on the beach. Clearly things don’t work out as planned. The film is almost completely a rehash of the last one. Instead of a tiger, there’s a monkey. Instead of losing Doug (Justin Bartha), they lose Teddy (Mason Lee), the bro-in-law-to-be. There’s a strip club, somewhat disturbing dudity (dude nudity), a kidnapping, even a Mike Tyson cameo. So how is this movie still funny?! It just is. Zach Galifianakis is ridiculous fun as always and Ken Jeong has a likeable secondary role, but even Bradley Cooper and his bad-boy smirk take a backseat in this one, handing the reins to Helms instead. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas and Paradise Cinema 7. Rated R
