  • The Hangover Part II

    When I first heard that there was going to be a sequel to the wildly popular comedy The Hangover, I had some initial doubts about how this would size up to the first. I loved the first movie and I was skeptical if they'd be able to pull off an equally funny and crazy movie. I was very happy with the results. It closely followed the first movie and shared some of the same lines and set-ups to comedic moments and crazy situations they found themselves in. It wasn't a clone of the first movie but it still had that outrageous feel that the first movie had. There were some truly hilarious moments of insanity and clueless Alan lines. I give this movie two enthusiastic thumbs up.

    If you loved the first Hangover, go see the second. It does not disappoint.

    I LOVED the first one and I can't wait to see part two tomorrow. A lot of people I know went to see it at the midnight premiere and they all had positive things to say :]

          I saw it last night at midnight, I really enjoyed it. But one of the things I liked about the first film was that it wasn't sleazy at all. There was no nudity shoved in at random times, it was a pure class movie. The sequel has definitely sleazed up a bit, but it was still a funny movie, just not as good as the first.

            It was definitely more sleazy, but it worked.

                If you are a little disappointed with this one (because from the previews it kinda looks like a carbon copy of the first), and you want an alternate movie to see, I highly recommend going to see Bridesmaids. That one was frackin' hilarious.

                  Ya know, I wasn't all that impressed with Bridesmaids. It was just alright. I much preferred this movie.

                    Around $86 mill, not bad for another hang over and making it the top-grossing weekend ever for a live-action comedy and I guess they didn't find God was a she, LOL.



                    by Gitesh Pandya
                    THIS WEEKEND North American moviegoers stormed their local megaplexes as the Memorial Day holiday frame set a new record led by strong openings for a pair of Asian-set sequels. The highly-anticipated comedy The Hangover Part II registered a scorching launch while the animated pic Kung Fu Panda 2 enjoyed a solid start of its own. The adventure tentpole Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides suffered a big drop in its second weekend but still contributed large numbers in third place as the summer of sequels drew massive numbers of ticket buyers into theaters making for the biggest weekend in a year and a half.


                    Setting the box office on fire, the much-hyped comedy The Hangover Part II met with explosive numbers opening to an estimated $86.5M over the Friday-to-Sunday portion of the holiday weekend and a jaw-dropping $118.1M in the four days since its Thursday launch. Playing in 3,615 locations, the theater average was an incredible $23,923. It was the second biggest opening in history for an R-rated film behind only 2003's The Matrix Reloaded which bowed to $91.8M over the Friday-to-Sunday period and $134.3M from its late Wednesday night launch. The Passion of the Christ ranks third with $83.8M over the weekend and $125.2M in its five-day Wednesday-to-Sunday debut. With Memorial Day Monday still to come, the Hangover pic is expected to easily beat that five-day figure.


                    Moving the action to Bangkok, the new installment from Warner Bros. started its busy weekend on Thursday with a stellar $31.6M (including a huge $10.4M from Thursday night post-midnight shows) and held up well with $30M on Friday and $29.7M on Saturday. Sunday is estimated to drop 10% to $26.8M. After Monday's holiday, the five-day total should fall into the $135-140M range exceeding industry expectations. Reviews were mostly negative with many critics blasting the film for being a carbon copy of the original, but audiences enjoyed what they paid for giving it a solid A- grade according to CinemaScore.


                    Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis reunited for the new tale along with director Todd Phillips and talk is already underway for a third chapter. The first Hangover opened at number one in June 2009 with $45M and had tremendous legs finishing with more than six times that amount at $277.3M from North America alone. Audiences around the world responded giving Mike Tyson and company $467M worldwide making it the biggest R-rated comedy in history. The sequel brought back the main cast and crew, changed the setting thanks to a wedding set in Thailand, and kept most of the formula the same. The $80M-budgeted production entered the marketplace on Thursday with some of the highest levels of fan anticipation of any film this year.


                    Warner Bros. rolled out The Hangover Part II in 40 countries around the world and grossed a stellar $59M which was three times bigger than the respective openings of the first film in those markets. The United Kingdom led the way with $16.4M which was the all-time biggest debut for an American comedy of any rating. Another English-speaking market that greeted the film with open arms was Australia with $11.6M. In both territories, Hangover opened better than last week's bigger-budgeted Pirates sequel. Germany and Russia open next weekend and the international tally is expected to soar quickly.
