It was time to take a short break from the disturbing and sombre tones of the French movies and just sit back, relax to some inane comedy. "The Hangover part 2" was a good way to indulge my frame of mind.

2 years later, the 'wolf-pack' are back. Same scenario - someone is getting married, this time it is Stu (Ed Helms), the dentist. Same plot - they totally forget what happened 'one night in Bangkok' and wake up with a massive hangover to discover someone from their entourage has gone missing!

The same cast who get into all sorts of troubling situations with a shaved head, permanent facial tattoo, a mischievous monkey and severed finger before they find their missing friend. The same brand of humor that is both raunchy and hilariously funny, at the same time.

It is essentially and basically the same as the original except for the location. This time it is set in exotic and humid Bangkok with its sleazy streets and red light district gaining prominence or notoriety, it is up to you to decide. Not really surprising if you are familiar with the bustling capital of Thailand.

Despite its predictable ending (especially the pictures during the end credits scene), you still enjoy the ride along with the wolf pack. Familiarity doesn't breed contempt in this case as "The Hangover" sequel still delivers its mindless brand of entertainment with a big punch!
