The Hangover II

The Wolf Pack is back and I have only one thing to ask: Have you seen the first one? If not, better not to. Why? This movie has the slightest difference from the first one: The setting.

I first saw the movie last tuesday. Yep. The movie has been in my hard drive for too long and I have been trying to finish the whole movie since 2009 but did not have the chance to do so. Instead, I had the free time last Tuesday and voila, I successfully finished watching it for the first time since 2 years. Oh yes, the first movie is funny and all that. It has a touch of mystery and it has the perfect formula of a not-so-innocent fun gone wrong.

In the 2nd movie, Stu is about to be married to a Thai woman, and not Heather Graham which is a complete disappointment for me. He managed to invite the other members of the wolf pack except Allan, which is a good decision after all. But then Doug insisted to bring Allan to Thailand. And so the wolf pack is again complete, ready for some partying in Thailand. Along the way, they met Stu's soon to be brother-in-law and managed to have fun with him on Bachelor's night which turned out to be a disaster.

This is just the disappointing part, the writers seemed to have nothing left on their sleeves that they have to look for the script of the first movie and just tweaked it out a little and voila.... PART II. Although they have several new funny jokes along the way, it seemed they are a bit exaggerated. I blame the writers for being so lazy to put up another storyline besides the one they have from the first movie. Part II seemed to be a "new and improved" version of the first one.

The jokes are funny and more offensive. Kudos to that. But as a avid moviegoer, I am expecting for something more - something new.
