Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, and Todd Phillips carried the first Hangover, even though the script was pretty lame and hacky. I was going to say that, instead of calling it “overrated”, but then the sequel teaser hits and practically the whole thing is glowing quotes from critics about the first one. Really, guys? That’s still the movie where the fat guy gets a BJ from an old lady in an elevator, right?
Oh well, at least Peter Travers didn’t say it “snuck up and floored” him.
In the follow-up, Phil (Cooper), Stu (Helms), Alan (Galifianakis) and Doug (Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.
Imagine? When you’ve got David Carradine’s crime-scene photos, there’s no need to imagine. (*resumes choke-baiting*)
