'Hangover 2' teaser trailer: It's almost so funny

By Liz Kelly

"The Hangover." It made stars of Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and, arguably, Mike Tyson. Ed Helms (aka "The Nard Dog"), in my "Office"-centric estimation, was already a star. The movie was a revelation, a lightning strike after so many disappointing cloudy days. But can lightning strike twice? And can my writing get any cheesier? My answers: Possibly not and definitely yes.

Anyhow, the first teaser trailer for "The Hangover 2" was released Thursday. The gang has been transplanted to Thailand for more madcap adventures. A couple worrisome things to note: 1. The funniest thing about this clip is Zach G's T-shirt. And, 2. Half of the one-minute promo is taken up with quotes about how amazing the first movie was rather than proof that the sequel will live up to the hype:

Agree? Disagree? "The Hangover 2" hits theaters on Memorial Day.

P.S. One thing we can all agree on -- Bradley Cooper is hot.

I'm looking forward to this movie, and I'm glad they didn't reveal any of the jokes in the trailer. It is a "teaser" trailer, so I think it served the purpose. Noticed no Doug, though. I hope they don't retread the "Doug is lost" plot again.

Hangover is near perfect.

The Hangover sucked. I watched it half-baked and laughed maybe twice. Not funny.

Thin Bradley Cooper's hot? You haven't seen the nipple ring in my man-boobs.

The first Hangover was HORRIBLE! I can't imagine this one being any different.

Bradley Cooper? I don't get it. He looks like a tranny verson of Barry Manilow.

I am TOTALLY diggin' Ed Helms' facial tattoo homage to Mike Tyson (notice how it fits perfectly around his glasses frame) . . . and Zach Galifianakis' haircut/t-shirt . . . and the monkey too . . . and you're worried there won't be comedy? Pshaw!

What the...

I guess you had to be there for round one...

Anybody that doesn't think the first Hangover was hilarious has no sense of humor whatsoever, and should avoid comedy movies, period. Seriously. There were laughs to be had at just about every line - assuming you were at least 10 years old.

How could you forget Ken Jeong as the gangster?? He was made into a bigger star than Bradley Cooper in the Hangover! He stole the show. You're not only office-centric, but main character-centric...

Seriously, I can't imagine not finding something to love in the Hangover. EpsteinsMothersDoctor's needs to pull that stick out of your rear end. You sound like a nice puritan.

The Hangover is the funniest movie I have ever seen, anyone who did not like it, doesn't have a sense of humor, this one may be good, but I dont think it will be as funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't see the Hangover until it came out on dvd. I thought it was very funny, but not as funny as it was hyped up to be. It's definitely good enough to watch multiple times, but I really thought Pineapple Express was 100 times funnier than Hangover.

I'll definitely catch the 2nd movie, just hope it's at least as good, if not better than the 1st.
