Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"I can't believe how precisely everything does happen again, except that what was fresh and surprising in Las Vegas turns rancid and predictable in Bangkok, where yet another wedding is scheduled to take place."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Raunchy and unfunny, this sequel feels like a simple retread of its predecessor."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"The Hangover: Part II shows the writers have absolutely no faith in their characters or their own ability to take them somewhere new."
‑ Ali Gray,
"Visually dazzling, well shot and perhaps richer in character than the first film -- but also nowhere near as clever, refreshing or funny."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"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."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Directed, like the wildly successful first film, by Todd Phillips, it airlifts the original characters, premise, and story structure out of Vegas and plonks them down in Bangkok in near-identical form, save for a few instances of ante-upping."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"If you love the first film, seriously, do not see this one. You'll ruin two movies at once."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"Overall, your enjoyment of this film will correlate directly to your enjoyment of the previous film. If you liked it, you'll like this one, if not, you won't enjoy the sequel as it's just more of the same."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"It is the epitome of lazy Hollywood filmmaking."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"I can't dismiss the ugliness behind many of its antics."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"It's a tribute to the filmmakers, particularly director and co-writer Todd Phillips, that the best way to approach The Hangover Part II is to talk about what it isn't. It isn't a typical sequel, either a watered-down encore or a muddled [extension]."
‑ Tom Maurstad, Dallas Morning News
"The cast is once again at the top of their game and there are some genuinely hilarious moments, but on the whole, The Hangover Part II is way too similar to the first film to be enjoyable."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"I think the first one is like GONE WITH THE WIND compared to this tired old turd."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"There are one or two good jokes and the cast is mainly likeable but the rest of the material is so predictable and tawdry that the entire film becomes something of a chore"
‑ Laurence Boyce, The Baltic Times
