This movie was subpar at best, maybe because I also found the first one so overrated and literally IDENTICAL in both plot and unoriginality. Both movies try so hard to be clever and witty that you'll be rolling your eyes every 15 minutes when they retrace their steps based on "clues" or suddenly remembered actions from the previous night....only to tell everyone they meet they remember "absolutely nothing" .

Unfortunately, it did great again at the box office so they are already scripting a 3rd saga.

The reason I didn't like this one as much as the first is because it was definitely a repeat of the formula, but more over the top and insane. It felt like an action movie at times, and I don't know why it had to go "so hard."

A really funny part is where they have the short exchange about the changed password. Simple, yet hilarious!

Like, it's funny...you will laugh at some of it, but it really was the perfect example of a Hollywood Sequel. It was just the same damn film.

The first one was great. I thought it had great characters and good situations. It was a good, solid comedy. But, the sequel...man...

Rush Hour 2 syndrome. They reused 90% of their jokes.

Except Rush Hour 2 was awesome*, the Hangover Part II was mediocre at best.

Already have the steelbook pre-orderd from Germany. Haven't seen it, but I am sure I will enjoy it even though it wasn't as good as the first.

The steelbook should improve the movie somewhat, unless it gets dented in shipment.

The equivalent of Home Alone 2. Same plot and gags in a new setting. At least Home Alone 2 had that scene where Daniel Stern took bricks to the face.
