6/8/2011 by Leonard MaltinUnless moviegoers themselves are willing to shoulder some of the blame, it's useless to try and figure out why The Hangover Part II is so bad. The film only exists because, after the hilarious 2009 movie broke box-office records for an R-rated comedy...
6/3/2011 by David DenbyThe 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.
5/27/2011 by Christopher OrrThe missing person, the seamy urban setting, the gradual accretion of clues: The Hangover films are, essentially, hard-boiled crime stories spun into comic depravity.

5/27/2011 by Peter RainerI can't dismiss the ugliness behind many of its antics.

5/27/2011 by Joe MorgensternI can't believe how precisely everything does happen again, except that what was fresh and surprising in Las Vegas turns rancid and predictable in Bangkok, where yet another wedding is scheduled to take place.
5/26/2011 by Dana StevensDirected, like the wildly successful first film, by Todd Phillips, it airlifts the original characters, premise, and story structure out of Vegas and plonks them down in Bangkok in near-identical form, save for a few instances of ante-upping.

5/26/2011 by Tom MaurstadIt's a tribute to the filmmakers, particularly director and co-writer Todd Phillips, that the best way to approach The Hangover Part II is to talk about what it isn't. It isn't a typical sequel, either a watered-down encore or a muddled [extension].
5/26/2011 by Richard RoeperOne of the most uninspired and unoriginal sequels you'll ever see. Or not see, if you're lucky.
5/26/2011 by Andrew O'HehirPhillips 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.
5/26/2011 by Nathan RabinThe filmmakers can't recapture the original's novelty or freshness, so they up the raunch level considerably; the matter-of-factness of the transsexual and gay-panic jokes is almost progressive.
Globe and Mail
5/26/2011 by Gayle MacDonaldThe Hangover made the actors A-list Hollywood stars. But despite the indisputable talent of this cast, The Hangover Part II doesn't deliver the same zany punch of its predecessor.
5/26/2011 by Tom LongMaybe what goes on in Vegas really should stay in Vegas.

5/26/2011 by Mick LaSalleAlas, 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.
5/26/2011 by Peter TraversSomebody must have roofied me. I left The Hangover Part II feeling dazed and abused, wondering how bad things happened to such a good comedy.
5/26/2011 by Stephen WhittyIt feels a little bit like that fourth dirty martini - not a good idea at the time, and probably to be regretted later.
Los Angeles Times
5/26/2011 by Betsy SharkeyOh, what a headache-inducing, unapologetic money grab we have in "The Hangover Part II."
5/26/2011 by Carrie RickeyWhile these characters were amusing the first time around, Phillips and his screenwriters don't bring much new to the party.
5/26/2011 by Scott BowlesFor all the talent Hangover II reassembles, our boys just can't muster the hair of the dog that bit them the first time around.
5/25/2011 by Eric D. SniderIf you want to avoid plot spoilers for The Hangover Part II, don't watch The Hangover.
5/25/2011 by Ian BuckwalterThe result is a cinematic illustration of the law of diminishing returns, in which more money, more exotic locales, more crazy situations and more Mike Tyson all fuel a familiar carnival of abasement.
