Hangover Part 2 Review
Can Hangover 2 stand on its own two feet without having to rely on its prequel? Or does it suffer from "the-sequel-sucks" syndrome?
"My uncle once saw an albino polar bear." "Aren't polar bears already white?" "It was a black polar bear." "Are you sure it wasn't just a black bear in the snow?" "..."
The Hangover 2 is about the three guys getting back together for Stu's wedding in Thailand. However, as we all know, the bachelor party goes horribly wrong and the guys wind up lost in the city of Bangkok. What's worse is Stu's fiance's kid brother is missing in all this mess. As guys try to make their way back to the wedding, they have to find the kid before the father in law chews them up.
It would probably be a good idea to watch the first one before watching this one in order to get a grasp of the characters because there's a lot of references to the prequel. some stuff that you might not find funny is hilarious to others because of the references to the first one. Though you can still enjoy it without watching the first one, you'll understand a lot more if you do.
The guys are hilarious. Everything they do gets them deeper and deeper into trouble. The jokes range from slapstick to sex jokes and from dark humor to flat out knee slappers. I didn't find it as funny as the first one, but I'd be lying if I told you I didn't have a great time watching this. I'd recommend this movie to anyone above the age of 16, because there are some nasty jokes in here, hahaha.
FluffyBunnyPwn gives it 8/10.
