As Todd Phillips insists on telling each of us, personally, on an hourly basis, The Hangover was the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. And if people enjoyed watching irresponsible men wander around a dangerous city carrying a baby and looking for their possibly dead friend two years ago, then why wouldn’t they love seeing exactly the same thing again? With a monkey!
This is a visually thrilling piece of film, but that just isn’t enough in the face of appalling dialogue and acting, paper-thin characters and a poor excuse for a plot. Let’s just close our eyes, pretend this didn’t happen and await a return to form with Superman. I have faith in you, Zack.
