THE HANGOVER PART II Teaser Is Here To Tell You How Great The First Film Is!!

Published at: Feb. 24, 2011, 1:03 p.m. CST

 

Merrick here...

A teaser for THE HANGOVER PART II is now online in Glorious QuickTime over at Apple.  Not a great deal to see - oddly, much of the teaser's running time is spent plugging the first film.  

I enjoyed THE HANGOVER a bit - although I don't think the resolution to the mystery (where's that missing friend!?) was as clever as it should've been, or paid off like the filmmakers probably wanted it to.  Still, I don't mind seeing these characters back in play, and look forward to a more illustrative trailer.  

Find the new teaser HERE!

    by Gigabrian

    Overrated Movie

    by Judge Briggs

    People loved this movie because of their fascination of being drunk and 'not being able to remember being ridiculously intoxicated'. If it weren't for the glorification of being drunk, this would have been a standard, buddy flick. *yawn*

    Fuck Off about the 'mystery'

    by antonphd

    the mystery was there to serve the humor. it wasn't supposed to be amazingly clever. it was supposed to be just another 'oh shit, we didn't!' moment in the film. which it was. don't tell me you enjoyed the hangover, which delivered more laughs per minute than most comedies deliver per hour, and then bitch about something that nobody fucking cares about. that's just being a ass.

  • Feb. 24, 2011, 1:27 p.m. CST

    Hangover was a deserved smash.

    by TommyGavinsEgo

    A proper, R-rated comedy that wasn't a damned "rom-com"... a proper guy's movie that crossed over to everyone... rude, raunchy, filthy, funny. Like any film with a massive rewatchiability factor it hit high because of the chemistry between the leads. The only film I've ever, ever seen in a cinema where the audience was missing jokes because they were busy laughing at the last one. Plus, unlike most comedies - ie bullshit, hit-the-beats-til-Adam-Sandler-shouts-at-someone efforts - there was an actual mystery and plot turns. It's a genuinely good film and great comedy. Part II has me sold just because it has a monkey like in Raiders.

    by bee152

    Much better than the finished film. I never laugh out loud when reading a script but I did when I read The Hangover. Imagine my surprise when majority of the finished film was drastically different. I can actually say I laughed more at the script than i did at the movie. No Mike Tyson, no baby, no retard. The characters were very likable and real. The movie wasn't even close. Don't know why they changed it.

    Hangover wasn't HAHA funny but it was fun

    by cgih8r

    I think it's just relatable, and it had a story to follow that was fun. The humor was nothing special but I think audiences were just ready for that kind of movie. Compared to other shit that comes out these days, sure why not consider it the Citizen Kane of party movies! it still isn't saying much.

    Hangover was a lot funnier than it should have been................

    by crackerfarmboy

    I was expecting a completely generic modern comedy film: insert Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, and a Wilson brother here; instead Hangover was actually rather intelligent and funny. Should it get a sequel? God no. Oh and monkeys are not apes. Apes are much larger, more intelligent, and do not have tails. Humans are actually the fourth species of ape (Chimpanzees, Orangutans, and Gorillas being the others.)

    by Andrew Coleman

    Napoleon Dynamite and Superbad? What are you 15? Horrible list. The Hangover is alright. I'm seeing the second one because I bet it will be the funniest movie to come out this year. I also agree they don't need a long set up before shit hits the fan. But braindrain I don't get what you're saying about Casino Royale. Are you talking about the opening scene that was in black and white? That was cool. From there the movie gets right into things.

    by rev_skarekroe

    Best comedies of the 00s

    by applescruff

    Are we defining the 00s as 2000-2009 or 2001-2010? There is a very real debate about that. I tend to do the former, but I also understand that since there was no Year 0, then you kinda have to do it the latter way. But I don't give a fuck, I'm going with 2000-2009. Also, I hate to get even more in depth, but how are we defining "Comedy"? There are many movies I would include in my list that don't necessarily fit into a neat box. I'm talking about clearly humorous films that maybe are also technically Action films, or "dramedies", or really really fucking bleak and dark movies that also make you laugh. I'm thinking specifically about movies like IN BRUGES, BLACK DYNAMITE, KISS KISS BANG BANG, GHOST WORLD, THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS and AMERICAN PSYCHO. Would you consider those movies "comedies"? I want to include those here so that's why I'm asking. <br><Br> Just to offer a counterpoint to the previous list, here's mine based on the guidelines I just laid out:<br><br> 1. Borat: Cultural Learnings For Make Better Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan<br> 2. Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy<br> 3. The 40 Year Old Virgin<br> 4. In The Loop<br> 5. Best In Show<br> 6. Bad Santa<br> 7. In Bruges<br> 8. Idiocracy<br> 9. Superbad<br> 10. Black Dynamite<br> 11. Team America: World Police<br> 12. Zoolander<br> 13. Old School<br> 14. Shaun Of The Dead<br> 15. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang<br> 16. Super Troopers<br> 17. The Hangover<br> 18. Pineapple Express<br> 19. Tenacious D in The Pick Of Destiny <br> 20. Role Models<br>

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    by kiwicanuck

    Not sure if you'd classify it as a comedy - bit of a mash-up of genres, but one of which would be comedy wouldn't it? It certainly had some of the finniest moments and dialogue in a movie that particular year. Black comedy in several instances (the dog with Downey's finger in his mouth comes to mind) sure, but at least it was meant to make you laugh...unlike Black Swan, which elicited laughs unintentionally.

    Applescruff

    by kiwicanuck

    Applescruff, great list. I would in fact consider American Psycho a comedy, so kudos for bringing that to the fore. Never got the love for Old School though. In my opinion that is one of the most overrated comedies of the past 10 years or more. However I really enjoyed the Hangover, and I'd probably wedge it up in the top 10. Honestly, the ending montage had people laughing as hard as I've ever heard a packed house laughing in a theatre. This was a huge component of its success I think...sent people out riding one of the biggest (of not THE biggest) laughs of the movie. Runner up would be the tazer face-off. Rob Wriggle ("that's it...I like the intensity...") always cracks me up, while the blocky kid's poker face running in slo-mo off Fat Jesus's palpable fear was brilliant.

  • Feb. 24, 2011, 8:11 p.m. CST

    HANGOVER is great.

    by Stifler's Mom

    Great point above, the end montage was the funniest end-credits sequence ever. Never head a theater laugh so hard over closing credits, and EVERY comedy does it nowadays. Can't believe how many pompous fanboys are claiming they didn't enjoy it. Stick to Edgar Wright's overrated geek humor, I guess. But you can't argue with a comedy that makes $250 million.

    Hangover was tame

    by menacingphantom

    It was tame compared to a 70s flick. In the post-South Park era it was nothing. A total tease. Barely Simpsons level transgression. Ever seen "Very Bad Things"?

  • When Mike Tyson gives the funniest performance in your movie you're in trouble. And I actually like Zack Gallifinakis in most of the stuff he's in. Old School and all the other fratpack movies from the early 2000s are way funnier than The Hangover. Call me a traditionalist but I'd much rather have seen the crazy night they had then a whole movie of connect the dots catch up.

    I gave Anchorman an honorable mention. It's just played out for me now.

    by Coughlins Laws

    Everyone I know constantly quoted that movie for 4 years. If you asked me 2 or 3 years ago, I would've had it in my Top 3. Just now, it's too familiar. As far as Borat, I have to admit, I don't ever remember laughing that hard in a movie theatre over anything. That being said, for some reason, I just have no desire to watch it again. I bought it on DVD and have never watched it all the way through. I like movies you can watch over and over again. Napoleon Dynamite is a movie I didn't like the first time I watched it but it just kept getting funnier and funnier to me. Whenever it's on Comedy Central, I just start watching it. And to the guy that said Sex Drive, I almost forgot about that movie. That was unexpectedly funny to me. I also thank the movie for introducing me to Amanda Crew...

  • Feb. 24, 2011, 9:20 p.m. CST

    Watched this with great anticipation...

    by Ray_Tango

    ... and we all sat there, stone-faced, waiting for it to be daring or out-there, or funny (and we suitably intoxicated and very much in the right head space for a fun comedy). But it just didn't click with any of us guys and dolls. I just don't get the popularity and acclaim on this one. Didn't Very Bad Things do this in a more fun and subversive way years earlier? It took more risks too. Hangover seemed very, very safe to us. I have equal love for British and American films, but I can't help but wonder how much more daring a UK version of this film would have been. At least it might have felt vaguely real.

  • Is it the movie's fault that you put your own unrealistic expectations on it? Second of all, being drunk is NOT a good way to watch a movie. Maybe a movie you've already seen a couple of times but when you're drunk, the movie DEFINITELY doesn't have your full attention. And last but not least, Very Bad Things? Really? Other than both movies set in Las Vegas, I couldn't think of two movies that were more different. Very Bad Things was NOT a good movie and was barely a comedy. It tried WAY to hard and I really think you're putting us on. You don't REALLY think that movie was better than The Hangover, do you? Are you just being a contrarian just to be different?

    Always the same thing

    by Smartacus

    If it's popular you folks hate it. If it made money you hate it. If you loved it when it came out but they're making a sequel then you hate it (and the sequel). If the filmmaker didn't follow it with another movie that did equally well you hate it, the next movie, and him. The rush to proclaim how unspectacular everything that does well is the one constant in the universe. The Hangover was outstanding. It worked across the board which rarely happens with this kind of comedy. Not one weak link in the entire thing.

    You mean The Evil Dead trilogy? And they are better than what exactly? Of course, everyone knows that Max Johnson loves him some Evil Dead.

    Meh...

    by Darklighter

    It was an ok movie that was way WAYYYY overhyped but I guess I could go for more. With that being said the funniest parts of the last one were all in the trailer and if that's the case again......this aint agonna be a too goot.

    The Hangover is good. The Hangover II teaser sucks.

    by thebearovingian

    "He's jacking his little wenis." "Not at the table, Carlos." Inappropriate and crude yet hilarious. Love the part with Zach and Brad coming down the escalator a la 'Rain Man'.

    Yeah well since you failed to discern the source of my username on here, and you failed to understand why even a teaser for an upcoming comedy should attempt to show something resembling humor...you lose.

    This Old Fuck...

    by kiwicanuck

    ..really enjoyed the Hangover, found the performances great across the board (the supporting characters were memorable and funny), the chemistry between the main players fantastic, the dialogue at times hilarious, and the situations pretty fresh. I know I hadn't seen a movie play out like that before, and didn't see everything coming, which was a welcome change. Lumping the King of Queens, Two and a Half Men and Everybody Loves Raymond together is correct (it's all mediocre bullshit in my eyes), but throwing The Hangover on top of that pile does a disservice to what was a much better piece of popular entertainment. I think some people have got the rose-coloured glasses jammed on a little too tight. Perhaps The Hangover will fade with time, but from where I stand so have many of the other comedies mentioned. Bachelor Party is solid, but a classic? Revenge of the Nerds? Entertaining yeah, but also swamped in sickly sweet swill by the time it wrapped up. Porky's is shit, I'm sorry. It wasn't great back in '80, and it's all the more fucking terrible now. Made infamous by how racy it was, not for how funny. And the Party Animal?? I loved it at the time, but it was mostly on account of the flagrant T and A. Then again, that offensive, sexist and racist sloppy cut and paste job did have it's moments. Not an ounce of wit though, but man, you had to admire its balls. "Hound dog is gonna it that pussy, hound dog is gonna eat that pussy..." Oh Pondo Sinatra.

    the teaser wasnt funny

    by jsfithaca

    but it was still awesome. i dont think it was supposed to be funny, and was just saying hangover part 2, memorial day, get pumped. and thats what i am. the first was hilarious. i find a lot of recent comedies overrated (pineapple express, step brothers and tropic thunder) but i loved the hangover.

    This would be the obvious jab at the plethora of shitty comedies that have come since, and used that superlative to market themselves.

    PPL actually thin that Two and a Half Men is funny?

    by Stalkeye

    Glad Good ol' Charlie made that Anti semetic comment since that may be the quickest way to cancel that unfunny shit that passes as Comedy. Sheen should have known better not to fuck with the Jews. (Can you say "Mel Gibson"?)

    Top 10 comedies of the 2000s

    by Beezbo

    I found this a hard list to compile, because comedies generally sucked in this Apatow-ruled era. 10) Zoolander 9) Role Models 8) 40 Year-Old Virgin 7) In Bruges 6) Borat 5) School of Rock 4) A Mighty Wind 3) A Life Aquatic 2) Anchorman 1) Old School I liked the Hangover, but with all of the must-see-in-the-theater movies coming out this Summer, the sequel is a rental for me.

  • Feb. 25, 2011, 10:13 a.m. CST

    beezbo, nice list but you missed Best in Show and Meet the Parents

    by THE_CHOPPAH

    Both came out in 2000 and are two of the funniest of that decade. Personally, I'd put them at the top of the list. Shit, now you've made me want to make my own list.

    Justin Bartha

    by jemagee

    I enjoyed the first movie quite a bit but I just want to say that Justin Bartha is getting the short end of the stick (it seems again) in these fiilms. He's quite funny

  • So, Ed Helms character has moved to vegas and is going to marry Heather Graham. The rest of the guys gather in Vegas for the wedding the night before an they plan on having a bachelor party. Meanwhile, Graham's baby daddy is also in town and he wants to hang out with Helms and get to know him since they will both be in the child's life. Only Baby Daddy has an ulterior motive: to sabotage Helms' and Graham's wedding. So, during the bachelor party he drugs Helms and his buddies and the morning after Helms learns that he lost the baby and he and the others need to piece the night together in order to find the baby. (Only the baby isn't really lost he is being held by the Baby Daddy.)

    coughlins laws

    by Stalkeye

    I used "alleged" because, of the plausable denial of the case and as much as I have disdain for Tyson, he may have been railroaded. The so called Victim went on to the Miss Black Beauty Pageant the day after she was raped by Mikey.Now, what fucking Woman in their right mind would attend some Beauty contest after being raped? no, her ass would have went to the Po Po (Police) and have a rape kit administrated for evidence against her attacker. Don't even go there with "Oh, she was too ashamed". if that's the case, why go out in front of all those people for the pageant? *Jeporady music playing*

  • and then when he started to get rough she didn't like it and told him to stop. He did not. If this was the case then that was rape even if she initially consented. I think a similar thing happened in the Kobe Bryant case. It was still rape. Of course, Kobe settled in that one.

  • The reason gibson gets the raw deal is because of his racism. And he deserves to get a raw deal, don't get me wrong, but so does Tyson. Hypocrisy of the highest order!

    This will be a disaster

    by JoeSixPack

    Not a box office disaster. It will make a lot of money. It will be a terrible film that everyone will forget about a couple of years down the road. Comedy sequels don't pan out well, especially one with the plot style and mega success of The Hangover.

    by Stalkeye

    Yes, to have sex against a Woman's will is of course rape. However, Tyson's Victim had no business going to the pageant, post rape.(therein lies the mystery.) It's as if she had a to-do list: 1.)attend the Miss Black america Contest 2.)Take the Chicken out of Freezer. 3.)Press rape charges against Mike Tyson. 4.)Go out on the Town with Rob and Moeisha. WTF? But you're right about Kobe, and what's funny is the fucker is still blowin up to the extent of shooting advertisements for Call of Duty Black Ops and other endorsements. Had it been me or you, well our asses with be hauled to Rykers, Lompoc or whatever Prison. The power of the Celebrity, I tell ya.

    Still Don't Get It

    by dumbpeoplesuck

    I'll never understand the huge success of the first one. Comedy was lame and predictable. I agree jonathan...can't stand Zack Gastroenteritis. If the dumbed-down humor wasn't bad enough, his Rain Man triumph at the end made me wish I had spent all my time enjoying a good vomit.

    yes Hangover was just "meh"

    by Rupee88

    just not that funny unless you are have a low IQ while watching it. 40 y/o Virgin was much better, as was Dodgeball even..or Wedding Crashers. And both of those weren't excellent but very entertaining. Hangover tried to be too clever but it just was too forced and contrived and not funny.

  • and for people who literally think ANYTHING eccentric (even without rhyme or reason) is funny. People acted like this was the second coming and to me, if you had a bar with, say, Trading Places, Animal House, Ghostbusters, National Lampoon's Vacation, What About Bob?... fuck me, even The Burbs and Captain Ron all occupying spots between a 7 and a 10 on the comedy gold scale... well The Hangover, Old School, and Knocked Up... I'm sorry, I place all of these at about a fucking 4-6. None of them even have the replayability of those movies, let alone the originality. Why is EVERY FUCKING SUCCESSFUL COMEDY NOW ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS, FRAT BOY HUMOR, OR HOW ALL THE CHARACTERS CAN'T GET LAID/NEED TO COME OF AGE? The only two recent notable exceptions I can think of are Zombieland and Tropic Thunder. I feel like we didn't know how good we had it with the Farrelly Brothers and Jim Carrey movies now that the predictable egotistical smugness of Apatow and his crew are comedy's gold standard. Sorry... if there's one area of weak sauce in movies today, I point all fingers at comedy.

    What will be popular to hate next?

    by JoeSixPack

    First the movie will be great and I'll love it, but after it becomes too popular and the popular kids at school rave about it, I will hate it and continue to cut myself because no one will talk to me.
