Movie Review: The Hangover Part II (2011)

The Wolfpack is back and Bangkok has them.

In The Hangover Part II, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galafianakis play friends who wake up one morning after a massive drinking binge and find that they are in a very screwed up situation. To make matters worse, they are in unfamiliar territory in the exotic Asian city Bangkok.

The film almost duplicates the first Hangover movie, but the jokes are much raunchier and there's a lot more graphic scenes (read nudity). I just hope the censors won't subject this movie to a lot of editing because I think the charm and effectiveness of the film's humor will be tremendously reduced. (The film is R-rated, by the way).

I think some people may be turned off with the gags (Thai ladyboys, a smoking monkey, Ken Jeong's naked body) but just take it lightly and the film could offer a fun ride in the innards of Bangkok.

If you ask me, The Hangover Part II is very funny and shocking at the same time. It definitely pushes the envelope.

Rating: 4/5
