A gross-out night at the theater


Heading to an advance screening of The Hangover Part II tonight in Century City, the home of 20th Century Fox.  Perfectly scheduled to go into box office competition with Bridesmaids (well, a couple of week later) director Todd Phillips' follow-up to his 2009 blockbuster hit The Hangover, has a lot to live up to. The original film became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. In a mediocre year at cinemas - and with heavy news swirling all around us - I sense audiences are in the mood for a no holds barred, forget-your-troubles,  gross-out fest.  Instead of a stag night in Las Vegas the action moves to Bangkok - and what ever happens there, certainly won't stay there.  I'll let you know, if I dare...
