The Hangover Part II

Gord, Shawna, Trish and I saw The Hangover Part II this evening.

Stu (Ed Helms) is getting married. Along with Doug (Justin Bartha), Phil (Bradley Cooper), and his soon-to-be brother-in-law Teddy, he regretfully invites Alan (Zach Galifianakis) to Thailand for the wedding. After a quiet night on the beach with a beer and toasting marshmallows by the camp fire, Stu, Alan and Phil wake up in a seedy apartment in Bangkok. Doug is back at the resort but Teddy is missing, there's a monkey with a severed finger, Alan's head is shaved, Stu has a tattoo on his face, and they can't remember any of it. The wolf-pack retrace their steps through strip clubs, tattoo parlors and cocaine-dealing monkeys on the streets of Bangkok as they try and find Teddy before the wedding.

Shawna, Trish and I were talking last week that we've wanted to see The Hangover Part II but still haven't (it's been out since May) ... so we made a date to see it tonight. Gord has been wanting to see it too so he came along. We met in the foodcourt at the AMC beforehand and Gord had to endure listening to us talk about cherry-scented nail polish, boys, vacation plans and kitties.

To be honest, I didn't go in with high expectations ... and this movie exceeded them. It's a funny movie, especially if you've seen the first one (which Gord and I have many times). It was good to see Mr. Chow back. I'd recommend you go see it ... is definitely worth renting.

Here we are as we were leaving ... Trish, me, Gord and Shawna.

Fun time, as usual!
