'Hangover Part II' review: You won't laugh as much this time

LOS ANGELES

When his pals fly over for the wedding, they all get involved in another inebriated, memory-losing misadventure.

But instead of a missing groom, this time it's the bride's teenage brother who disappears and it's race to find him before it's time to say "I do."

These guys know their characters well and they somehow play out the absurdity of it all in a believable way. Also back for the fun is Ken Jeong as Mr. Chow.

I laughed out loud several times and was shocked at some of the surprises. But some jokes fell flat and the storyline sometimes felt a stale in a "been there, don't that" way.

The plot was just transplanted from Las Vegas to Bangkok. I suspect the filmmakers wanted to give us what we loved so much the first time around. And I can appreciate that.

It's a racy, randy, really R-rated comedy, but you won't laugh as much as you did the first time around.

The bottom line is you're going to go anyway so enjoy it.
