The one thing that people were scared of when thinking about the sequel to one of the funniest movies ever was that it was going to be too much of the same thing. Hey, Home Alone 2 was based on the same concept and it did pretty well about 20 years ago, didn’t it?
The movie is pretty much the same as the first one, except it has more of a dark side. Everything works for me and it worked for everyone in the theater the night I saw it. I always say that when you have a bit of trouble hearing the next line in the movie because the crowd is laughing so hard, it is never a bad thing. That happened several times during the movie. It was that funny.
There are a couple of things that I would like to bring up. Are we in an age in which an abundant display of penis on the big screen is popular? There have been more and more movies that are fixating on that trend and I, for one, am not happy about it. Oh, and how did Stu get himself such a hot wife? I don’t get it. I just don’t.
If you haven’t seen it yet I honestly do not know what you are waiting for, as it just destroyed Kung Fu Panda 2 at the box office. Go see it now and keep in mind that when it comes to the Hangover: Part II, there is never too much of a good thing!
Final Word – 3 Stars (Go see it!)
