The Hangover Part 2 was recently released in cinemas and after the great success of the first film we were excited to see the sequel. The Hangover Part 2 follows the same formula as what made the first film so popular but it does borrow to much and relies on the same gags. This time sees the group in Thailand for a wedding which all goes wrong after a night out drinking which ends up with an adventure in Bangkok.
We did throughly enjoy Part 2 and there are some truely standout funny moments but it did feel a bit the same and the element of suprise with the first film had lost its appeal with the second.
If you loved the first film then you will enjoy the second with that nostalgic feeling of seeing the character back for a second outing.
