Ileana’s Movie Review: Hangover 2

Warner Bros.

Starring: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Mason Lee

Summary: This movie is pretty much summed up in the first ten minutes where Phil says “it happened again”. The wolf pack has reunited once more, this time for Stu’s wedding in Thailand. After the trauma of their Las Vegas adventure Stu insists on not having a bachelor party. Instead the guys decide to go down to the beach for a nice relaxing bonfire. Somehow the trio unexpectedly wakes up in a sleazy hotel room in Bangkok with no memory of the previous night. Instead of the groom disappearing this time, it’s the bride’s little brother Teddy (Lee). Now the guys must once again try to piece everything together to find Teddy in time for the wedding.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie, though I wish it wasn’t so similar to the first one. It was smart to move the location to Thailand in order to increase the profanity. I’m thinking specifically of the scene in the strip club, which I will not spoil here but you’ll understand once you see it. Of course Bradley Cooper takes his shirt off a few times, but I think that’s written into every movie contract he signs. Ed Helms is hysterical as Stu and Zach Galifianakis is crazy as ever as Alan, but mostly I enjoyed the return of Mr. Chow played by Ken Jeong.

Trivia: For all you animal activists out there don’t worry, Crystal the monkey did not inhale. While the cigarette in her mouth was real, the smoke was digitally added later.

Rated: R – For pervasive language, strong sexual content including graphic nudity, drug use and brief violent images.

Grade: B
