San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
So comically fertile and yet so grounded in the reality of its characters that it's really a kind of marvel.

This is very much Brand's movie, with Hill playing a surprisingly subdued straight man. Still, the strong supporting cast - including Rose Byrne and Elisabeth Moss as the guys' girlfriends - easily holds its own.

Great? No. Great fun? Oh, yes. Like Sergio and Aldous, this movie messes with your mind, then tickles it.

By Peter Travers
Before it goes off the rails into strained sermonizing, this sorta-sequel to 2008’s delightful "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" gets in big laughs.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Michael Rechtshaffen
Never achieves the propulsive traction and outrageous/endearing balance that made "The Hangover" such a smash this time last year.
