Movie Review: The Hangover Part 2
The Hangover Part 2. Yes it was fricking HILARIOUS. Yes you should probably go see it. And Yes you will most likely enjoy it. (Bar anyone with no sense of humour .)
HOWEVER. DO NOT go thinking you will see anything different to the first film. It is literally exactly the same.
- Doug’s stag night with Stu’s (who happens to be engaged to a VERY fetching Thai woman)
- Las Vegas with Bangkok
- A lion with a monkey
- The baby with an old gumby monk man
- A lactating hooker for a trannie stripper
- A missing tooth for a face tattoo
And you have a dispiriting replica of the original smash-hit.
The jokes, drugs and nudity are pushed that bit further and all your old favourites are back pushing their ‘character quirks’ that little bit too close to the edge. (Heres looking at you Alan and your wolf pack jokes and incessant need to drug your friends.)
So last time it was the somewhat bland character ‘Doug’ who got lost on a Vegas rooftop the morning of his own wedding, and now it’s straight man Stu who gets derailed the Friday before his destination nuptials in Thailand. Stu tries to avoid the inevitable, but once Phil (Yes I am the future Mrs Cooper ladies so BACK OFF!) cajoles him into a late-night beer by the bonfire, and man-child ‘stay-at-home-son’ Alan laces the marshmallows with roofies (again), it’s blackout time. When they awake, Alan has been shaved bald, Stu is adorned with the aforementioned Tyson tattoo, and there’s a denim-vested monkey chain-smoking and bouncing around a grim Bangkok hotel room.
Once again Alan steals the movie in all of his strange and weird ways and it also brought on a new wave of stupid catch phrases and jokes that we will be repeating for hopefully not as long as; “We’re blood brothers man”, “One man wolf-pack”, “Don’t touch it. Don’t even look at it”, “toodeloo mudda fuuuuuckkkkkerrrrssssss”, “So long gay boys”, “it’s funny cause he’s fat”, “It’s where I keep all my things. Get a lot of compliments on this. Plus it’s not a purse, it’s called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one”, “Would you please put some pants on? I feel weird having to ask you twice”,”Pagging Dr Faggot”, “Okay, well, maybe we should tell that to Rain Man, because he practically bankrupt a casino, and he was a retard”, “Remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Except for herpes. That shit’ll come back with you”, “Yeah, maybe after 9/11, where everybody got so sensitive. Thanks a lot, bin Laden”, “Drivin’ drunk. Classic”, “Hey, you guys ready to let the dogs out”…..
Yeah I could keep going but I think I have embarrassed myself enough for one day with my knowledge of Hangover Quotes 😦
Part II delivers enough outrageousness (and new quotes) to satisfy audiences who don’t mind some déjà vu in their debauchery. I think you’ll love.
