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.

Leonard Maltin

Unless moviegoers themselves are willing to shoulder some of the blame, it's useless to try and figure out why The Hangover Part II is so bad. The film only exists because, after the hilarious 2009 movie broke box-office records for an R-rated comedy...

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

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

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.

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

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.

Dana Stevens

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.

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.

A pathetic excuse for a sequel, actually more of a lazy rehash than anything else. Everything is so boring and predictable, the jokes are disgusting and not at… More

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.

The Hangover Part II has got to be one of the most uninspired comedy sequels ever made. What's really sad is that it starts with a bang, even if it's… More
