How do you top the debauchery of 2009's runaway hit 'The Hangover'? Find somewhere even more debauched than Las Vegas, that's how. So Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifianakis), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are off to Thailand for Stu's wedding.

This time, of course, Stu vows that it's going to be different. Rather than a big drunken blowout, he's opted for a civilised pre-wedding brunch. What could possibly go wrong? Well, after a quick drink, the friends awake to find the groom's future brother-in-law is missing.

Then there's Stu's facial tattoo, Alan's shaved head, and their new monkey friend to explain as they struggle to find out what happened and get to the wedding in time. Mr Chow (Ken Jeong) and Mike Tyson return, while joining the cast are Liam Neeson and Jamie Chung, who plays Stu's long-suffering fiancee.

Screenplay: Craig Mazin, Scot Armstrong, Todd Phillips

You should see it because: It supercharges a winning comedy formula with even more outrageous behaviour than the first film.
