TWO Hollywood comedies are hitting the screens of cinemas nationwide this week.

• IN The Hangover Part II (15), Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug ( Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding.

With the memory of Doug’s nearly disastrous bachelor party in Las Vegas still fresh-or at least well-documented-Stu is taking no chances.

He has opted for a safe, subdued, pre-wedding trip brunch, with pancakes, coffee…and no alcohol. However, things don’t always go as planned.

Two nights before the big day, at a fabulous resort in Thailand, Stu relents. One beer each. In sealed bottles. What could go wrong?

What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha star in the film reprising their roles from The Hangover.

The main cast also includes Ken Jeong and Jeffrey Tambor, who also return from the first film, and Mason Lee, Jamie Chung and Oscar nominee Paul Giamatto, who join the ensemble.

• IN Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules (U), the sequel to 2010’s surprise hit, Greg Heffley, the kid who made ‘wimpy’ cool is back in an all-new family comedy based on the best-selling follow-up novel by Jeff Kinney. (Kinney’s ‘Wimpy Kid’ series has thus far sold 42million books).

As he begins seventh grade, Greg and his older brother-and chief tormentor-Rodrick must deal with their parents’ misguided attempts to have them bond.
