The Hangover Part II

Critics Consensus

A crueler, darker, raunchier carbon copy of the first installment, The Hangover Part II lacks the element of surprise -- and most of the joy -- that helped make the original a hit.

Movie Info

In The Hangover Part II, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin 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. -- (C) Warner Bros

Critic Reviews for The Hangover Part II

All Critics (243) | Top Critics (53) | Fresh (81) | Rotten (162)

  • It might not be quite as much fun as the first film but it's fun enough - and that's all that counts. Plus, there's a monkey in it.

  • Unless moviegoers themselves are willing to shoulder some of the blame, it's useless to try and figure out why The Hangover Part II is so bad. The film only exists because, after the hilarious 2009 movie broke box-office records for an R-rated comedy...

    Jun 8, 2011
  • The Hangover Part II isn't a dud, exactly -- some of it is very funny, and there are a few memorable jolts and outlandish dirty moments. But it feels, at times, like a routine adventure film set overseas.

  • The Hangover Part II sees the same ingredients shaken up in the kaleidoscope, but a less attractive and far less amusing pattern emerges.

  • The missing person, the seamy urban setting, the gradual accretion of clues: The Hangover films are, essentially, hard-boiled crime stories spun into comic depravity.

  • I can't dismiss the ugliness behind many of its antics.

Audience Reviews for The Hangover Part II

  • May 08, 2015
    The first film was the bomb, and it's hard to try to be with the same level as it was. But definitely worth-seeing for Bradley Cooper.

    The Hangover Part II certainly isn't bad, but like many comedy movies, it falls under the curse of being too similar to the first entry. The first entry was decent at best, and part II doesn't offer a whole lot new that we haven't seen before. It is serviceable, but ultimately, it is a huge disappointment for fans of the original.

    Pathetic. And I don't mean just the characters. This film's a mess.
    Christian C Super Reviewer
  • Mar 22, 2013
    Its humor is grotesque and its writing is tired.
