QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A group of friends again experience a wild bachelor party night, this time in Thailand where, like their previous escapades in Las Vegas, they can't remember much and try to piece together the night in order to find a group member who's now missing.
PLOT:
American dentist Stu (ED HELMS) is all set to marry his fiancée, Lauren (JAMIE CHUNG), in her homeland of Thailand, and has invited his friends, Phil (BRADLEY COOPER) and Doug (JUSTIN BARTHA), to come along for the big day. But he's extremely reluctant to offer a similar invite to Doug's "stay-at-home-son" brother-in-law, Alan (ZACH GALIFIANAKIS), a passive-aggressive man-child who still lives at home with his parents.

Stu's reluctance stems from the group's previous experience in Las Vegas where, for Doug's bachelor party, Alan spiked everyone's drinks with roofies, thus leading to a wild and dangerous night where no one could remember anything that happened. To make matters worse, that also involved them trying to figure out what happened to Doug who went missing, all while dealing with boxer Mike Tyson; Stu ending up married to a stripper; and a jive-talking criminal, Mr. Chow (KEN JEONG), who claimed to have kidnapped Doug.

Despite all of that and due to Doug pleading for some family-related leniency, Stu agrees to have Alan tag along and they all set off for Thailand. There, they meet Lauren's family, including her stern father (NIRUT SIRICHANYA) who disapproves of Stu, especially in comparison to Lauren's 16-year-old, pre-med, cello-playing brother, Teddy (MASON LEE). The guys decide to take him out for the night before the wedding, and despite their precautions, the same thing happens again.

This time, however, rather than Doug disappearing, it's Teddy who goes MIA. All of which results in Stu, Phil and Alan trying to find him, all while dealing with the return of Mr. Chow, a drug-peddling capuchin monkey, a silent monk, and other figures and developments that threaten to derail Stu's pending wedding.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the first film (or have just heard about it and the wild antics depicted within it) or are fans of anyone in the cast, they'll probably show some interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For pervasive language, strong sexual content including graphic nudity, drug use and brief violent images.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
