Kung Fu Hangover (Part 2)

Talk about a weekend of sequels. Although it may surprise you as to which one of these the boy was looking forward to the most. But to keep the anticipation up, we'll keep his pick for second...

The Hangover Part 2
It's been a while since I saw the first one, in fact I only saw it in the theaters, so it took me a while to remember all the characters and how they were involved. Even then I couldn't remember a lot of the shenanigans from the first. Although that was probably a good thing, but I didn't have a lot to compare it to.

It definitely is ridiculous as expected. And over the top at times. I did really enjoy it and don't think it had a down moment. With that said, I think in someways Bridesmaids might still be the funnier film. (Of course I could be a little biased considered the material.) But I will say that I still loved the wedding at the end of The Hangover.

Kung Fu Panda 2
Yes, this is the movie the boy wanted to see, and our first pick of the weekend. We saw it in 3-D, and my opinion is that the movie along with the 3-D is worth the cost. Although I don't think you'd be missing out seeing it in 2-D. In some ways I think this was better than the first, and with the ending with definitely left it over for a third.

Overall a great weekend for movies. I don't think you could make a wrong choice with either one. It's more of what are you in the mood for. But after these two films, I'm just looking forward to the rest of the summer box office even more now!


  1. I should take my nephews to the Kung Fu Panda sequel when i am done with this test! I bet they'd love it. i actually have not seen th efirst one, though. I love that your fiance was more excited about that than Hangover 2!

    I also have not seen the original hangover either... I feel like I waited too long to see it so there is no way it can live up to the rave reviews it go. Kind of like how i was uberly disappointed with Knocked Up...

  2. Aww. I SO want to see both those movies. Although, I did hear that Hangover 2 is exactly like the first one...
    Thanks for the reviews though!!! :)

  3. I really want to see Bridesmaids! Everyone keeps talking about how hilarious it is!!
