'Hangover II' - Moviemaking, mayhem go hand in hand
BY GENE TRIPLETT
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. â The guys from âThe Hangover Part IIâ didnât really suffer the consequences of alcohol abuse while filming in Bangkok, but too much of the Thai capital can cause its own morning-after miseries.
âI think, unfortunately for Ed, it was the food,â Bradley Cooper said during a news conference to promote the new comedy last week at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
âI had a very serious hurdle to get past, the first week, which was food poisoning,â Ed Helms agreed.
âIt lasted throughout the movie,â Cooper disagreed.
âWell, it never fully went away,â Helms admitted. âAnd maybe I should just leave the rest up to your imagination. Just say my body exploded.â
So, maybe it wasnât such an acting stretch for Helms to look hung over in âThe Hangover Part II,â the much anticipated sequel to the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time.
Like the 2009 original, chapter two is an outrageous raunch-fest about four guys who embark on a drinking and drugging spree to celebrate the impending wedding of one of their number, only to wake up in a trashed hotel room the next morning remembering nothing, but quickly discovering and panicking over the fact that one of their number is missing.
Cooper plays Phil, the relatively levelheaded ringleader of the group; Helms portrays Stu, the bridegroom this time, whose rather milquetoasty demeanor belies a dormant darker side; and Zach Galifianakis returns as Alan, the left-footed child in the body of a man who is prone to appallingly inappropriate behavior thatâs a constant source of irritation and trouble for everyone.
