yawn. More of the same. As a matter of fact, the exact same, just dressed up differently. A chuckle here and there, but overall a waste of my time, when I could have just watched the superior first over again.
Fails utterly as a comedy. But, as a spiritual successor to Cassavetes' Husbands, it semi-succeeds.There's the alcohol. The male kinship. There's the specter of death. There's the claustrophobic closeness to a macho trio as they transgress social boundaries in a desperate grasp at freedom. All of this is completely undercut by the ending, of course.
I loved the first Hangover, Zach Galifianakis had been my favorite comedian for the couple years building up to it and it was great to see him finally make it big, and he was just on fire the whole movie. This suffers from every horrible sequel cliche there is. It's soulless crap only slightly saved by Galifianakis who is never not clever & original, but you could tell even he was having trouble finding inspiration.
