  • Recipe for nutso fun: Mix Zach Galifianakis with Robert Downey Jr. Apply the same mold John Hughes used for "Planes, Trains and Automobiles." Have Todd Phillips stir with wack-ass abandon. Don't worry about missing ingredients, like plot. Serve to an audience ready to lap it up. show more

  • The comedy never really takes off because it's phony. show more

  • The basic problem is the script, which is credited to three writers plus the director - seldom a good sign. Never mind that it's a retread of "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" minus the trains, and minus John Candy. show more

    Some of the scenes and music (Check yourself...) were funny but this is HANGOVER II.

    I did not like it. Thought maybe Jr could act funny. Same dry as in Iron man.
