The Hangover Part II (Devil’s Advocate Review)
The “Wolf Pack” rides again, as Stu (Ed Helms), Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Alan (Zach Galifinakis) get wasted and then find out that once Bangkok has you, she just won’t let go.
Raunchier and darker than the original, Part Two’s situations and jokes see the three friends encounter smoking monkeys and ladyboys, take custody of a wheel chair-bound Buddhist monk, get shot and beaten, all while trying to find Teddy (Lee), who takes the role of “guy we lost while partying” which was taken by Justin Bartha’s Doug last time.
It’s a wild nasty ride, and one that will have fans of gross out comedy films laughing in their seats all the way until the end credits, where another show reel of party snaps awaits to provide the most shocking images in the whole thing.
Random and unnecessary, Hangover II does everything it possibly can to shock and be in your face short of someone taking a dump directly onto the camera, which I’m sure will be in the next sequel. All the screaming and randomness began to get on my nerves after a while, and I found myself getting tired of the obvious attempts to find dialogue that would be quotable on a t-shirt/coffee mug, most of it spilling out of the mouth of Ken Yeong’s Mr Chow.
