Todd Phillips can do no wrong with "The Hangover 2" as it's as funny as the first "Hangover" movie, but lacks originality as it borrows the same plot and storyline. Only the setting is set in a different country, which this time around is set in the mysterious and exotic land of Bangkok, Thailand, instead of Las Vegas, Nevada.
With the 'wolf pack' returning for the sequel, the movie promises to be a fun-fest as Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis have tremendous chemistry with their crazy antics throughout the movie as the 'wolf pack' (minus Doug), who search for their friend Teddy, who's played by award winning director Ang Lee's son.
The review feels that the performance of Ken Jeong as Mr. Chow was splendid and similarly hilarious as with his performance in the first "Hangover" movie.
The movie plot and storyline is identical with the first movie, but Alan played by Zach Galifianakis shows a much darker side of himself, which is pleasantly different as opposed to his character in the first film which was just plain hilarious.
The reviewer feels that the R-rated humour is a crucial part of the movie, but sometimes the humour tends to get boring and stale.
Overall, "The Hangover 2" is a must watch if one is a fan of "Hangover", and also a fan of adult comedy as the movie is definitely a laugh-fest.Cinema Online, 07 June 2011
