|Why do sequels always suck?|
The movie picks up with Stu (Ed Helms) headed to the alter...this time in Thailand. His plan is for a really subtle "bachelor brunch." Of course, things go seriously wrong.
You would think these guys would be able to hold their liquor by now, but that's not the case. On this go-around the guys run into virtually the same high jinx they faced on their first bender...only this time, instead of a baby, it's a monkey. Instead of losing Doug, it's Stu's future brother-in-law. Stu breaks out into song, not on a piano, but this time on the guitar. Get it yet? Same song, only prettier dance.
The second rounds leans heavily on slap stick comedy, crudeness and a ton of Zac Galifiankis (Alan). If you too bought into the internet hype that former President Bill Clinton would be making a cameo, sorry charlie.
The Hangover Part Two has some solid laughs mixed in with some really raunchy scenes, but it lacks the originality that made The Hangover a blockbuster success.
