The Hangover Part 2

2011 remake

Rating: 11/20 (Jen: 13/20)

Plot: Second verse--same as the first! Except this time, they're in Bangkok, and there's a monkey instead of a tiger. And they don't lose their friend. No, this time they lose another guy. And Mike Tyson isn't in this one. No, wait. He is in this one!

Jennifer rated this higher than the first movie for some reason. I liked it almost exactly the same but don't remember what I rated that one. We had a few laughs, and I do appreciate that the makers of these things aren't afraid to get really ridiculous. I still like Bradley Cooper (hell, I might have a crush on Bradley Cooper, but plesae don't tell anybody), Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms. They're all trying awfully hard in this, but like the first movie, the sheer insanity kind of loses its steam after a while. It's not a bad formula, but the humor's just inconsistent.

When Part 3 comes out, a character's got to die. Probably Ed Helms. That's the only way I'm going to allow them to make another one of these.

The first had some hilarious scenes and felt kind of original. This feels like being forced to vacation at the same place you went last year, and do the same types of things, but they are no longer fun, and the tour guide is trying to force you to have a good time, even though he's not half as funny as he thinks he is. A 10.
