The Hangover Part II Review
By: Yvette M. Kelley
Last night I took my kids to see the pre-screening of The WB’s The Hangover Part II at The Providence Place Mall. Let me say, we found it funnier than the first. With a similar back based storyline, The Hangover Part II is darker than the original, more action packed, and had the audience howling throughout. Bradley Cooper ( Phil ), Ed Helms ( Stu ), and Zach Galifianakis (Alan), are dynamite together, and have great comedic timing in any situation during the movie. My personal favorite is their facial expressions. Cracked me up every time.
The Hangover Part II, takes place in Thailand, where Stu ( played by Ed Helms ), has decided to hold his wedding. Trouble ensues the 3 Best Friends ( Stu, Alan, and Phil ) as in the original. You have a Drug Mule Monkey, the Russian Mafia, a cut off finger, and let’s not forget the unforgettable Mr. Chow ( played by Ken Jeong ), who has more of a role in this movie than the predecessor. Which was a brilliant move, this man knows his comedy!
What happened the night before? Will they make it back in time for the wedding? You want the answers to these questions and many more, then be sure to check out The Hangover Part II, which opens in theaters nationwide Thursday May 26th.
SYNOPSIS: In The Hangover Part II, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined. — (C) Warner Bros.
