The Hangover Part 2

They said this was going to be the Godfather, Part 2 of comedy sequels, and while that may initially seem like a major boast for this type of film to make, it actually wasn't that far off. You see The Godfather, Part 2 essentially tells a very similar story to that of its predecessor, and so does The Hangover.

In this film, we're in Thailand for Stu's wedding, and, needless to say, as the bachelor party commences, the hijinks ensue. All of the lead cast is back, including, oddly enough, Ken Jeong as Mr. Chow, who feels forced into the film, but is, never the less, very funny. There's not much to say about this film. If you've seen the first one, you've seen this one. The gags are a little different, and more oriented towards the geographical location the crew finds themselves in, but otherwise it's pretty paint by numbers.
