"The Hangover 2" collected $31.7 million at the domestic box office on Thursday May 26, according to the Hollywood Reporter. This secures the R-rated comedy as the third best Thursday gross of all time.? The anticipated sequel to the 2009 Warner Bros. movie is on track to gross $110 to $125 million over the Memorial Day weekend. This projected success is despite lackluster reviews. CNN laments, "See for yourself if you really want to, but you get the idea: a rare original scenario has inspired a sickly pale imitation." The New York Times says, "If you superimposed a diagram that mapped out all the narrative beats, characters and jokes in 'The Hangover Part II' over one for 'The Hangover,' the two would align almost perfectly." And Peter Travers, reporting for Rolling Stone, expresses his underwhelming reaction, "I'm talking disappointment here, not disaster. Of course you're going to get a few laughs, but you're not going to get what you want."? Once again, the film revolves around a wedding-trip gone awry, only this time in Thailand. Sources:
