Ruby Leonne wants to welcome Castelar Garcia Rivera to our family. Castelar will be doing a column on movie reviews and what to do on the weekend every Friday! (Remember...these are personal movie reviews, reviews doesn't necessarily reflect the RL family.) Sometimes there will be spoilers.
First of all, I will admit that The Hangover part 1 didn't make me laugh very much. It was a film which didn't have many memorable comedic moments. However, I must admit its sequel was a wild and fun ride because of all the crazy shenanigans that occurred during this movie.
This time around the plot revolves around Dr. Stuart "Stu" Price, portrayed by Ed Helms, as he is getting married to Lauren on Thailand. He wants his friends to be there except for Alan Garner, portrayed by Zach Galifianakis, who Stuart considers to be a weird person. Both of his friends Phil Wenneck and Doug Billings convince Stu to invite Alan to his wedding. Before these men reach Thailand they go to the airport and they meet Teddy who is Lauren's brother. Alan doesn't like Teddy because he wanted to spend some time with his friends without somebody else getting in the way.
When they reach Thailand everyone can sense Lauren's father hates Stu as he constantly makes insulting remarks towards him in many scenes throughout the film. In order to make Stu feel more relaxed his friends decide to have a bonfire on the beach and drink some beers in honor of Stu, but before you know it they wake up in a strange place and they don't remember what happened the night before. This is very similar to the plot of the first film, but this time you can tell these actors are comfortable working with each other as the humor doesn't feel forced. When these gentlemen wake up they realize that Teddy isn't anywhere to be found.
In their road to self discovery they find Leslie Chow in their room and as it turns out he partied with them all night long, but he isn't able to tell them what happened because he passes out in a scene that is absolutely hilarious. This sets up a fun ride as these bumbling travelers realize that they are in Bangkok while they look for Teddy. Unfortunately, they will realize that they did a lot of dangerous things during their hectic hangover. Overall, if you want to see a crazy male bonding experience then see this movie.
