Hangover IINo one is surprised that the comedy world’s most anticipated movie sequel, The Hangover II, has shattered box office records in its opening weekend. And though the holiday weekend is still not officially over, the flick has made $138 million, according to Deadline.

That means, the Thailand-set comedy beat out 2007′s The Simpsons Movie ($74 million) and 2008′s Sex And The City ($56.5 million) in the realm of three-day openings for comedies.

But independent of records, we want to know what you think. Did you like The Hangover Part II? Did Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms live up to your expectations? Was it better or worse than the original? If you haven’t seen it, are you planning on it? Let us know what you think in the comments section.

    I just saw Hangover 2 yesterday… I don’t think this movie should have been made. and I can see that very sentiment in the faces of the actors as they heard their costars say for the umpteenth time, “YOU MEAN YOU REALLY DON’T REMEMBER?!” The Hangover was a classic, but this one just tried to hit all the same jokes from part one but they hit the jokes with a sledge hammer. I don’t think I’ll see it again. Unless I’m stoned and forget I wrote this.

    Thanks

    It wasn’s as good, or should i say surprising as the first movie. That only being said b/c there is a bit of bias going into it. If this was the first Hangover, it would be very very good as the first was, but since it had so much to live up to, ones opinion is only as good as how much you love the Hangover franchise.

    It was a funny movie but like it was already mentioned before it is a sequel. I think its just as good as the first but its just like the first except a different locale and in some cases more in your face .

    Barring a few funny moments (esp since Zach had the best lines), the film was a groan. The first part was so good that the expectations created by it actually proved detrimental to the sequel. Secondly, keeping the premise of the movie similar was a really bad idea. Thumbs down.
