  • It made me realize that I love my comedies to be extremely R-rated, because at least then it offers good, tear-jerking laughs, as opposed to horrendously lame romantic comedies with overly hyped anorexic actresses who simply cannot act, cannot impress and cannot escape the pathetic role of single female incapable of maintaining both a career and a love interest, a stereotype I find highly insulting, especially when it is portrayed by airheads
  • This can get boring in other movies, or feel overly used, but it did not in Hangover 2
  • This, I think, was the only thing I felt bad about, because I really love Heather Graham
  • I recommend this movie to anyone who wants a good time with friends, to people who appreciate hardcore kinky comedy and who don't cringe when body parts are freely exposed on screen

      I am not exactly a big fan of sequels, so when I heard that they intended to make Hangover 2, I was more than a little skeptical. I absolutely adored The Hangover and it is among my friends’ favourites when it comes to comedy as well. It made me realize that I love my comedies to be extremely R-rated, because at least then it offers good, tear-jerking laughs, as opposed to horrendously lame romantic comedies with overly hyped anorexic actresses who simply cannot act, cannot impress and cannot escape the pathetic role of single female incapable of maintaining both a career and a love interest, a stereotype I find highly insulting, especially when it is portrayed by airheads. But Hangover taught me that men have a healthier friendship than women. They can go through the craziest things together and still take it head on, without being jealous of each other, or petty, or depressed. Of course, movies like Hangover are thoroughly exaggerated and the context

      is fictional, and yet, the message is great, and the transmission of said message is highly entertaining. On with my review.

      I approached Hangover 2 with normal expectations. I knew I would laugh because the actors are good and the writing is equally satisfying. Yet all my expectations were met and conquered. I cannot say it is better than the first, but I laughed more. Much more. It was almost as if nearly every scene had some kind of comedic effect, ranging from the character Alan’s bizarre eyes and unfocused look to Stu’s desperation, to just random scenes in Bangkok. This can get boring in other movies, or feel overly used, but it did not in Hangover 2. So, the action this time takes place in Bangkok, Thailand, or at least the action that really matters. Another member of the “Wolf Pack” is about to get married, yet not to the pretty and nice stripper he drunkenly married back in the first movie. This, I think, was the only thing I felt bad about, because I really love Heather Graham. Ah well. The wedding is to take place in Thailand, and all the guys we’ve seen and love from the first movie are invited, including Alan, against Stu’s better judgment. The situation increases in awkwardness, until the guys are once again alone, celebrating. All goes down hill from there.

      Once again, they wake up in a hotel room, but forget the luxurious, albeit wrecked Vegas room, and think of a filthy, roach-infested dump in Bangkok. Hilarity quickly ensues, and to be honest, from the moment you see the trio together in the bathroom, Alan hairless, Phil with eyes redder than imaginable, and Stu trying to wash away the new tattoo that has appeared on his face, you will not stop laughing until the very end. A character from the first movie makes his appearance and he is by far the most amusing element, except, perhaps, Alan’s antics. He steals the show and ...

      I am looking forward to either seeing him in another Hangover movie (if they ever make one), or even in his own spinoff.

      The “Wolf Pack” find out that Bangkok is nowhere as “peaceful” as Vegas. As they search for the necessary missing member, they get a taste of Thailand’s spiritual side and of its intense underbelly of criminals, drug dealers and prostitutes. Now, if you know anything about Thailand, you will know about the so-called Third Gender, but you will still laugh your head off when it actually comes into play. From drug-selling monkeys with an incredibly high IQ to an overdosed Asian trapped in an ice machine, to car chases that make the Fast and the Furious look like child’s play, and to the members of the Wolf Pack receiving tons of physical punishment, this movie has it all. And it does it all right. It is seriously R-rated, raunchy, disgusting, violent, yet it works. The pattern is similar if not identical to the

      previous movie, yet it also works. Of course it could never happen. Of course it could never happen twice. But when you see it, you cannot stop watching.

      The acting is good. I seriously cannot imagine Zack Galifianakis in other roles, he just sells the retarded over-grown child role so damn well. Ed Helms is brilliant, Bradley Cooper is strangely sweet and Ken Jeong is legendary. The music is awesome and very well added to whole action. I can only praise this movie and to be honest, if one wants to make a sequel, this is a good example. Still, most movies should never have sequels (ex: Matrix, Saw, etc etc), but when it comes to the Wolf Pack, I would pay to see them in a dozen sequels. The director has done it right. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants a good time with friends, to people who appreciate hardcore kinky comedy and who don’t cringe when body parts are freely exposed on screen.
