Consensus: A crueler, darker, raunchier carbon copy of the first installment, The Hangover Part II lacks the element of surprise -- and most of the joy -- that helped make the original a hit.

David Denby

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.

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.

Raunchy and unfunny, this sequel feels like a simple retread of its predecessor.

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.

Slate

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.

If you love the first film, seriously, do not see this one. You'll ruin two movies at once.

I can't dismiss the ugliness behind many of its antics.

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].

We Got This Covered

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.

Just because a sequel uses the same formula as its predecessor, it doesn't mean that it's the same movie. If you like these characters and the general… More

Pathetic. And I don't mean just the characters. This film's a mess.

I watched this again yesterday and I watched it right after the first one. This sequel doesn't hold up well at all. It has a few moments, but really once… More
