So yeah. As long as you don't come into this expecting to be wowed with fresh originality you should be fine. It's still a very funny movie but like most sequels, simply cannot match the awesomeness of it's predecessor. Of course as numerous critics have pointed out, it doesn't even look like Tod Philips even tried to. But hey, lack of originality seems to go over like gangbusters these days.
There are some major differences between the two Hangover films. This new installment is much darker than the original. I'm not talking about the dingy Bangkok location either. The overall spirit of the film and some of it's characters are meaner than before. Also, be prepared for a lot more dick jokes. A LOT.
Perhaps the best thing about The Hangover: Part II is Jamie Chung, the May 2011 inductee of my Female Obsession series.
And since I can't resist myself, here's my soul mate, Kristen Bell (December 2010 Female Obsession inductee!) and the Hangover 2 monkey.
