Hangover II posterFinally got out to see this flick. As usual, I assumed all the naysayer reviewers just had a stick up their know-it-all asses, but turns out the movie didn't do much for me, either.

The performances were solid, there were funny parts, but it just didn't have the zip of the original.HANGOVER was written by Jon Lucas, Scott Moore. Part II was written by Craig Mazin, Scot Armstrong and director Todd Phillips. Really makes you wonder why Hollywood would fuck with such a successful combination of writers, director and actor.

HANGOVER II had the highest-ever grossing first week for a comedy with $205 million. That led the studios to hire Mazin again to write the screenplay for HANGOVER III, which is already in the words. This kind of thing is mystifying to me. Clearly, the opening week bonanza came because HANGOVER I was so damn good, and people wanted more -- it had nothing to do with the writing of Mazin and Armstrong. Yet they are bringing Mazin back instead of Lucas & Moore for the third.

I'll go on record to say that HANGOVER III will gross half of what HANGOVER II made. All those people who paid big bucks to see Part II on opening weekend aren't going to be beating down the box office door to see Part III.

I know I'll wait for Part III to come out on DVD, if I watch it at all.

I heard it was basically the same movie and decided to pass

It was not as good as the first flick...

The only character I could not stand was the younger brother/brother-in-law. He was just creepy to me. His problems with kids, school zones, and bodies just through me off. I hope the character dies a honorable death with the Cho character defending each other. Scar face like in the third flick.

Entertaining, But Save Your Money

I saw this opening weekend and it is the same movie basically. I figured this would be the case but i decided to give it a go anyway. I was entertained by it and I liked the Bangkok backdrop, but I think I'd have been better off waiting for the movie to arrive on HBO. I suggest those of you who haven't seen it do the same.
