The Hangover Part II
The Hangover Part II In this comedy sequel, Stu (Ed Helms), the milquetoast dentist who’s dumped his shrewish girlfriend Melissa in favor of sweet Lauren (Jamie Chung), is planning to marry her in her native Thailand as a concession to her family, especially her rich father Fong (Nirut Sirichanya), who has total contempt for Stu.

Unsurprisingly, the night before the ceremony Stu's friend Phil (Bradley Cooper) insists that Stu go with him, Doug (Justin Bartha) and Doug’s now-brother-in-law, spaced-out Alan (Zach Galifianakis) for a beach bachelor party, taking along Lauren’s little brother Kenny (Mason Lee). Doug leaves early, but the next morning Phil, Stu and Alan awaken hung over in a dilapidated, disheveled room in a city that turns out to be Bangkok. Stu has a huge tattoo on his face and Alan’s long hair has been shaved off and there’s a monkey in the room, plus Kenny is missing except for a dismembered finger with his Stanford ring on it. So the trio sets off to find Kenny and get back to the wedding on time.

What follows involves some Russian drug dealers, an exotic dancer, an American tattooist (Nick Cassavetes) and an elderly Buddhist monk. There's also a crime lord (Paul Giamatti) who turns out to be not all he seems, and the smarmy crook from the first film - Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong). Even Mike Tyson shows up again. But what really dominates is a stream of raunchy gags, some slapstick violence and lots of foul language en route to the preordained finale.

These guys all seem to be a pretty repulsive lot; Phil is a reckless loudmouth, Stu a whining ninny, and Alan a stooge with a mean streak. And under Todd Phillips’ slapdash direction, of the actors,  only Ed Helms has anything much to offer, since Bradley Cooper is a basically a smiling cipher and Zach Galifianakis is simply a happy chubby guy who just seems to be along for the ride. And although there are beautiful Thai locations, unless the sight of a monkey smoking a cigarette drives you into roars of laughter, you'll probably not find much else that's very entertaining in The Hangover 2.
