Right after the bachelor party in Las Vegas, Phil, Stu, Alan, and Doug jet to Thailand for Stu’s wedding. Stu’s plan for a subdued pre-wedding brunch, however, goes seriously awry.
I’ll start this review again with a rant on the current state of movies. Next time a movie that I want to see comes out, I am going to see it early in the day on a weekday. I thought it was just when I was younger that I noticed ass bags in the theater, but, as it turns out, older people, in their 20’s, are actually worse. Drunken people everywhere, yelling incoherent jibber jabber, and laughing at everything that ever happens. I probably missed out at least 10% of the dialogue of the movie from all of their noise alone. I thought human kind’s average intelligence was low before, but my word, this was not pleasant.
The other thing that wasn’t very pleasant was the movie itself. This is probably the most unoriginal movie that I have ever seen in my entire life. As you can tell by the trailer, the formula and script and screenplay are all drawn up in LITERALLY the exact same way. I can sort of say that I can see where the writers were trying to go with it, but they absolutely failed. I knew exactly what was going to happen at all times, nothing surprised me, and to be honest, the increase in sexual “humor” was disgusting and shameful.
The performances were mediocre, since all the actors had to do was exactly what they did in the last movie. Ed Helms was way over-done with his wimpy guy attitude, and Bradley Cooper looked like he wanted to be acting in a real movie elsewhere the entirety. The new cast in this movie actually did even less of a good job, bringing nothing at all to the movie from the only differences, the less-important characters.
This is a good example of the way sequels and movies are being done in this Avatar age. People just want to make money, and that was clearly the point of this film. The sad thing is that it worked, and will probably work for a long time to come (refer to my showing the low intelligence of our race). They could (and probably did) write this movie in 6 minutes. I would bet money that another one is going to be made.
All that being said, I can’t deny my having laughed a few times. Probably like twice. So I guess they got to me a little bit. Zach Galifianakis has some decent one-liners.
The Hangover: Part II brings The Hangover back to screen, and charges you to see it again. But this time, I guess there’s a monkey instead of a lion. This movie gets and old, dried out, smelly rotten tomato. Feel free to watch it on television in a year if you are falling asleep and delirious, but other than that, I wouldn’t waste my time.
