The original Hangover hit like a bolt from the blue. The 2009 comedy brought enough surprises into its fast-paced narrative that the concept of blending a detective story with raunchy Rolf laughs worked like a charm. It’s ironic that The Hangover Part II bases so many of its jokes on shock value and yet clings so dearly to the exact same formula of the original, right down to the plot beats and character actions. More of the same isn’t necessarily a bad thing and the sequel still manages to deliver laughs…heavy ones that too…trust me!
This time around Stu is getting married, the wedding with his bride-to-be will be in Bangkok in deference to her parents, and along for the ride are Phil, Doug and much to Stu’s chagrin, Alan. Two nights before the wedding, the four guys along with Stu’s future brother-in-law Teddy have a drink only to have the original trio wake up in a seedy hotel room with no recollection of the night’s events, new damages to their appearance, a new animal companion (the tiger has been replaced by an adorable monkey)…so cute, and Teddy has gone missing.
It’s remarkable the extent to which the sequel grabs everything it can from the original as if it’s terrified that changing even the slightest plot point will throw off fans. Almost every situation in this Hangover has a mirror in the original film and that is cute…Hangover class defined!!
The Hangover Part II is radically a little alter and improve on the first part. Phil and Alan and of course the Monkey have done a fabulous job!! “A MUST WATCH”
PS: Missing out on Suchi’s company during the movie could prove fatal and you may not like the movie (Watch it alone at your own risk)! Thank you so much baby! Love you loads!!
