The rumors are true: The Hangover Part II is quite similar to its predecessor. So if you liked the first one then odds are you’ll like this one too. Despite its inexplicable watchability and comforting atmosphere, I didn’t really care for the first film thus I didn’t really care for this one either. The “fun” is moved to Bangkok this time around; the tranny jokes and Murray Head references write themselves. See it if you want.
The Hangover Part II opens wide in Philly-area theaters today.
