On the set of The Hangover II: This time, there's a monkey
by Andrew Kiraly | posted May 3, 2011
The Hangover II takes place in Bangkok. Like Vegas, it's filled with prostitutes and desperation. What else do the two cities have in common? The director matter-of-factly points out the power of branding -- and you can never take that away from us, economy! You hear us?! Never!
"What it boils down to is that when you say the word 'Las Vegas' it means something," explains returning writer/director Todd Phillips, "When we talked about doing the sequel and we talked about a location, I wanted to find a city where the word meant something... When you say a word like 'Bangkok,' it means something. There's not a lot of cities where the word literally brings a picture to your mind."
So nice of him to say.
