~~ Review Script ~~
Taking a page from the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" playbook, director Todd Phillips reunites the entire principal cast of the original raunchy bachelor-party flick for a Thailand-set sequel that became the highest grossing r-rated film of all time this past summer, pulling in over 580-million dollars. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifinakis all return to the roles that made them household names -- turning in 102 minutes of even more hilarious performances. Set two years after the Las Vegas escapade of the original, it's enjoyable to see these characters enjoying the quiet life, with Helms specifically requesting a boring party, so as not to repeat the mayhem from their last time. As you've likely heard, the plot is literally exactly the same as the first: our fearless trio of hell-raisers get accidentally drugged during some pre-wedding celebrations and can't remember anything from the night before. While Justin Bartha sits on the sidelines this time, the rest of the gang searches for a missing future in-law that disappeared sometime after their crazy Asian friend Chow steals a drug-mule monkey, but before they wake up in Bangkok with a tattoos on their face, and their hair shaved off. (CLIP) As with the original, the comedy here comes from the bizarre situations the group find themselves in, the weird behavior of Galifinakis, to the zany cameos and misinterpretations that ensue. Including a hilarious, and gross scene where Helms discovers he was accidentally sodomized by a transvestite prostitute during their night of debauchery. Much like the original, "The Hangover 2" is sadly devoid of any reason as to why we should actually be rooting for these guys. Sure, their antics are ridiculously entertaining - but between their cheating, chauvinistic, and reckless behavior - they're far from role-model material, and in all honesty, mostly deplorable human beings. It is just a comedy movie though, which obviously has plenty of ethical short-comings. That said, if you're able to overlook their lack of a moral-compass, or a near-identical rehash of the first film's plot... this movie is surprisingly fun, and enjoyable. "The Hangover 2", "Completely unoriginal, but undeniably hilarious."
