You really can’t sing “The Boys are Back in Town” because these are not boys, they are wolves. And here they are again – Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms – looking more screwed up than before.
When the first Hangover arrived in theaters it became the highest grossing R-Rated comedy of all time. Director Todd Phillips, who has had his fair share of misfires over the years (anybody see School for Scoundrels?), is coming off a minor success with Due Date, a Planes, Trains, and Automobiles-esque comedy starring Robert Downey Jr. and Galifianakis.
In this sequel, Phil (Cooper), Stu (Helms), and Alan (Galifianakis) travel to Bangkok for Stu’s wedding. And if you’re wondering if friend Doug (Justin Bartha) goes missing this go-around, well he doesn’t. He’s around, but the story involves another missing person, apparently.
The first teaser was supported by Jay-Z’s “Reminder” in telling the audience that in case you forgot about the Wolfpack, well here they are.
“Bangkok has them now” isn’t as great a tag line as “Some guys just can’t handle Vegas,” but tag lines on movie posters aren’t a deal breaker.
The Hangover Part II hits theaters on Memorial Day, May 26th.
