The Hangover Part II
Provided by Metacritic.com
Here, as in "The Hangover," the laughs aren't just staged, they're superlatively engineered.
The Hollywood Reporter
Manages to deliver more laughs than most of the competition.
The unexpectedly wonderful thing about this sequel is that it actually improves on the jokes.
The rote professionalism on display verges on cynicism, and despite some occasional sparks, this ranks as a considerable disappointment.
John P. McCarthy
The price for an invite to Stu's (Ed Helms) Thai nuptials is fewer laughs and an air of menace and mystery that won't endear Part II to escapist-hungry audiences.
Is this some kind of a test? The Hangover, Part II plays like a challenge to the audience's capacity for raunchiness.
Has a "been there, done that, jailed for it" feel.
New York Post
I found this more elaborate, play-it-safe sequel far less fresh or funny.
This isn't even really a sequel to the hilarious 2009 comedy smash set in Las Vegas. It's virtually the same movie, just transferred to another continent and with the raunch wildly amped up.
It's hard to imagine a more calculating, creatively bankrupt piece of real estate than The Hangover Part II.
