The Hangover Part II recycles predecessor 

Nothing surprises in blockbuster comedy sequel

Same hangover, new city: Todd Phillips reunites the original Alan-Stu-Phil (Zack Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper) “wolf pack” for raunchy comedy round two. The gang treks to Thailand, where Stu is getting hitched to Lauren, who has a “solid rack for an Asian.” After Alan roofies the crew (again), they regain consciousness in Bangkok in an amnesiac state, and begin sleuthing to discover what the fuck happened to them (again), and the whereabouts of Lauren’s 16-year-old brother. Much of the movie is recycled from its predecessor---the cokehead gangster with a micro-penis, Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong), and the ludicrous joke set-ups--- except they’ve swapped the baby for a monk, and the tiger for an adorable drug-dealing monkey. Again, Galifianakis outshines his co-stars. Unsurprisingly, the strongest female character is a chick with a dick. The other women are inconsequential arm candy.
