Going into this movie you have to know that the story for the sequel follows the same premise as the first film, they have shown enough on the trailer to know this. But don't be fooled, they really haven't shown you anything.
The story is recycled Yes, but they have added so many new elements to this film. For one I love that Ken Jeong (Mr. Chow) has a huge role in this film, and he is one the best parts of the film. Jeong is just a great comedic actor and every scene he is in is memorable. Up next was the Monkey, holy shit some of the scenes he was in were Great! Especially the scene of him in the dirty alley when the guys call him over (will not spoil the scene).
The entire cast is back for this movie, Bradley Cooper (Phil), Ed Helms (Stu), Zach Galifianakis (Alan Garner), and Justin Bartha (Doug Billings) no idea why he is still in the film. He isn't needed in the movie at all, maybe they just felt bad for him. And new comers Jamie Chung as Lauren, Stu's fiancée, and one surprise guest at the end of the movie.
We all know what happened in the last film, the Wolf pack had an unforgettable bachelor party in Vegas and this time around Stu isn't taking any chances. He goes down the other road and decides he wants a safe, boring pre-wedding brunch with the guys.
Once they arrive in Thailand, things are going to go crazy. The guys opt for one beer and marshmallows on the beach while hanging out near a bon fire. Lauren suggest to Stu and the guys that they take her younger brother Teddy (Mason Lee) along with them. After a nice and sweet toast. History repeats itself.
Stu, Phil, and Alan wake up in this dirty broken down apartment in Bangkok. The boys are trying to put together what happened last night. And with the help of the monkey, who they discover in the bathroom, they find Mr. Chow under some covers.
They realize that they have lost Teddy. You think you know what is going to happen next but you are totally wrong. The jokes and events are taken to a level you have never seen. And in a few scene you are like, Dam really.
The Hangover 2 is a stand alone movie, new WTF moments, but the same formula from the first film. Writer/director Todd Phillips did an excellent job on the film. Be ready for a third film in the near future.
I'm going end the review here and keep it spoiler free, but like the last film one of the highlights of the movie is going to be the pictures they show while they run the credits for the movie.
