The Hangover Part Two: Here we go again
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it," said philosopher George Santayana, though it's doubtful he was referring to alcohol and drug-induced amnesia. Still, the statement aptly describes the plight of three bachelor party celebrants (Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis), who woke up in Vegas with no memories of their night of debauchery and are now back to repeat the insanity in Bangkok.
If you're a movie-goer who remembers past flicks, you'll recall the first "Hangover" as a quintessential dick flick with the requisite gross out bathroom scenes, sparsely clothed girls with breast implants and gazillions of comments about male body parts. Now, multiply these and you'll have a firm handle on Part Two.
The Movie Slut shared the theater on a weekday afternoon with a troop of tween boys, who'd probably purchased tickets for "Rio" or "Kung Fu Panda 2," then sallied into the "wrong" theater. They loved it. And MS has to admit she also laughed out loud.
