Like a bad case of déjà vu, The Hangover Part II is a cruder, much more morbid, and essentially less funny retread of the first film.
Wow, that sucks to hear. The commercials made it look great. Hmmm, I'll still have to check it out and see, but my hopes are much lower now.
I'm not even the least bit surprised by this. Comedies rarely if ever manage to live up to or surpass their predecessor.
The 1st one wasn't even all that good either.
See, I really did like the first one, but never thought a great sequel would come of it. I was hoping, but didn't really anticipate it. Comedies don't really work out well for sequels (like you pointed out), but I hoped for this one to work.
I remember on the first one thinking that the funiest thing to both my husband and I was at the very end when they were showing the pictures from the wedding that they didn't even remember taking.
We both thought the movie was okay and funny at times but not extremely funny. I guess this one will be about the same.
I thought the first one was funny as heck. I didn't want a second one though. Then to hear its the EXACT same formula as the first one...my hopes are already going down the tubes. We will see though. I will be giving the film a chance, just will be expecting them to be trying to hard.
First one was overrated but it was enjoyable and at times funny. The scores the sequel is getting are disappointing.
I think the first one was a tad bit overrated, but I still enjoyed it and definitely found it funny. That being said, from the moment we found out that it was going to simply be a rehash of the first one, I knew this was going to be mediocre. Especially after the disappointing Due Date. Just had a feeling that was a bad sign of things to come, like Phillips has lost it (of course he's only ever "had it" on a couple of occasions).
The film "makes" you want to laugh, even at times where it is not always funny. Some of the stuff is ridiculous on purpose I think, and over the top. But, I need a few laughs and this should be a change from the cartoon movies I take my kids to watch.
Can't wait for this movie one of the best comedies made
