‘Holdover Part II’ is more like it because The Hangover Part II should be in movie theaters for a very long time. The hilarious comedy uses the same formula as in the original that got the filmmaker an amazing box office return.

Whether you’ve seen the other three or just getting started, you are in for a pirating thrill ride.

The eye opening of a huge powerful country in transition speaks loudly about capitalism, communism, socialism, politics and a proud people. Has the amazing change stood the test of time?
