Lots of Weiners + Very Few Laughs = Hangover 2

By Carl Scarano-Schulze, Top Critic

Sorry, but I’m feeling a little emotional today. It’s more than my puppy brain can process. Maybe it’s just the post holiday-weekend blues. Or maybe it’s because Hangover Part II was so painfully unfunny. What happened to my beloved wolfpack? How could a movie with so much going for it deliver so very few laughs?

Another wedding, another bachelor party. Only they’re not in Vegas, they’re in Bangkok. And instead of losing the groom, they lose the bride’s brother. And instead of Ed Helms losing a tooth, he gets a face tattoo. And instead of a tiger, there’s a monkey. And instead of El Helms marrying a hooker, he gets buttf*d by a tranny. And instead of stuck on the roof, the guy they lost is stuck in the elevator. There’s still Mike Tyson, but this time, he’s singing and dancing (what?!). Instead of discovering the incriminating photos at the very end, they…..discover the incriminating photos at the very end.

It’s the exact. same. movie. From the opening scene, to the closing credits. Ken Jeong makes me want to claw my eyes out. The writers deviated from the original plot only to inject slightly more full-frontal male nudity (wieners galore). Their idea of a super Zach Galifinakis gag is having him mispronounce “Louis Vuitton”. Not exactly the laugh riot you were expecting. All in all, a truly awful sequel that will no doubt become an even more depressing trilogy. That’s Hollywood.

Summary: There’s not enough pot in the world to make Hangover II worth seeing.
Wags: 1/5
