The Hangover Part II

 ★★★☆☆

If you loved The Hangover, you’ll love The Hangover Part II … because it’s an exact replica! The Wolf Pack (Bradley Cooper, Zack Galifianakis, Ed Helms) is back, this time in Thailand, to wreak havoc while under the influence, and while superficial plot details differ (there’s a monkey instead of a tiger, a facial tattoo in lieu of a missing tooth), director Todd Phillips recycles the original blockbuster’s chain of events nearly frame by frame. But like déjà vu, it’s fun while it lasts.

The results offered clues, as the art market continues to thaw from the 2008 recession, as to which contemporary photographer’s stocks have risen, whose have fallen and whose are holding steady post-crash.
