"The Hangover Part II" is director Todd Phillips' follow-up to 2009's smash hit "The Hangover," which became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all-time and also won the Golden Globe for Best Film - Comedy or Musical. Reprising their roles from "The Hangover," Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha star in the film. Jeffrey Tambor, Ken Jeong and Mike Tyson also rejoin the cast. In "The Hangover Part II," Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu's wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don't always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can't even be imagined.

Somebody must have roofied me. I left The Hangover Part II feeling dazed and abused, wondering how bad things happened to such a good comedy.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 05.26.2011
Phillips and his co-writers, Craig Mazin and Scot Armstrong, seem to have launched into this project with a misguided faith in their own brilliance, but nothing resembling an idea or a story.Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, 05.26.2011
The Hangover Part II isn't a dud, exactly -- some of it is very funny, and there are a few memorable jolts and outlandish dirty moments. But it feels, at times, like a routine adventure film set overseas.David Denby, New Yorker, 06.03.2011
Alas, this time there are about three or four mild laughs in the whole picture, and the entire visual aspect of the movie is a botched disappointment.Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, 05.26.2011
