(Bitten and Bound)   The tattoo artist cameo in 'The Hangover 2' was a nightmare casting task. First Mel acted himself out of the role, then Liam botched it ... and finally, Nick Cassavette crushed it.... proving that three times is definitely the charm   (bittenandbound.com) divider line 60

When I heard it was Gibson: this might be cool.
When I heard it was Neeson: *sigh* meh.
When I heard it was Cassavette: who?

I can count on my ball sack the number of sequels to comedies that didn't completely suck. 1) Christmas Vacation 2) maybe Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey 3) My middle nut goes to the 15 minutes that Shatner was in Airplane! 2.

Honorable mention goes to Naked Gun 2 1/2 and Wayne's World 2 and although I thought it sucked, some people seem to like Ghostbusters 2 but none of the above were as good as their originals. So...wait a minute, they refused to work with Mel Gibson? Wasn't Mike Tyson in the last one?

Point 1: The Hangover was not a particularly funny movie

Point 2: I predict that the sequel will be less funny.

I'd say that there's no maybe about Bogus Journey.

Hell, I thought it was as enjoyable (if not more) than Excellent Adventure.

Liam didn't fark it up. The director decided to make some changes that would required re-shooting of that and a few other scenes. Standard operating procedure. Liam couldn't do due to scheduling conflicts.

Mel Blanc.

Before he acted himself out of the role, he had to act himself out of the ground. That's why it was such an awesome cameo.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that just maybe its not the actors who're the problem here.

Not sure I follow. They said they couldn't get Neeson in because of reshoot conflicts.


Cassavettes isn't a great director, but both She's So Lovely and Alpha Dog are underrated. Alpha Dog is great. SSL is a mess, but an interesting mess.

It's thailand. Appears to be the same story, different specifics. Fairly standard sequel formula.

This one has the same writers as Scary Movie 4, Superhero Movie and Road Trip: Beer Pong, so you should definitely check it out.

I am starting to think that "I didn't like the Hangover" is 2011's "I don't even own a TV".

Nobody thinks you're cool "I didn't like the Hangover" guy. Now go back to the kiddie's stable with "I liked their first two albums before they got popular" guy and "Can you ask the chef if the eggs are free-range and organic?" girl.

I won't purport to speak for anyone else, but I enjoyed The Hangover.

I have my doubts about the sequel, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

i was dissapointed how people like you talked it up as being some great movie when in fact it was good for a netflix stream. im allowed to be underwhelmed.

/as soon as they got the car i knew it was going to be wrecked by the end of the movie.

A celebrity cameo from someone no-one will recognise. Isn't that the same as a bit-part?

Hey, no-one said it wasn't formulaic. It was extraordinarily formulaic, but of its type, it was really well executed. See "Due Date" for what happens when formulaic movies are done in a half-assed way.

/ Also, see Ferris Bueller - of *course* the car is going to get totalled. Anyone who's old enough to get into the cinema realises that.

Not defending Gibson, but he did nothing wrong related to the film. Certain members of the cast find him distasteful and wanted him gone.

I believe the difference is that Mike Tyson has apologized and atoned for his previous crimes, sins and transgressions, while Gibson honestly seems to think he was in the right in hitting his girlfriend in the face.

Threadjack, because Mike Tyson is a lot more interesting than this movie: the documentary made about his life is really interesting. Most of us can't even imagine the kind of life he had growing up. He's a pretty farked-up guy, but he seems sincere. The only time he got really mad was when they asked him about the rape he went to prison for--he insisted it was consensual sex, and called the woman a couple of choice names.

Except that movie managed to make you give a crap about the characters AND it was funny.

For what my opinion is worth (not a damn thing), I enjoyed The Hangover the first time I saw it, but it doesn't hold up to repeated viewings, and it damn sure didn't need a "hey folks, I have a new hat" sequel. If it had to be made, use the same characters, but put them in a totally different situation, not the same situation in a different town.

to say nothing about comedy sequels, which almost always fare worse than the original.

I'll watch the sequel, but the trailer made Hangover 2 look like it had the exact same plot as the original right down to every minor plot detail (tiger in the hotel vs monkey in the hotel, toothed pulled vs facial tattoo, etc. I'm pretty sure Heather Graham was left out so Ed Helm's character can fall for a Ladyboy)

You're never going to get the reins of a major movie studio if your mandate is "Let's reinvent the wheels we know people like."

I'm just bummed Your Highness bombed. Not that it looked so awesome, but it might have encouraged them to make more "original" comedies.

It's not a reinvention of the wheel - it's taking proven characters and putting them in a new situation, not taking the entire first film and just giving it a different coat of paint.

I'm only speaking from the (imagined) pov of the incredibly risk averse studio head who probably said "Give me more of the exact same." As an audience member I'd rather see them creatively push the limits of the characters in a whole new situation as well.

I thought American Pie II, Harold and Kumar go to Guantanamo Bay, Hot shots:Part Deux and Beverly Hills cop II all were worthy sequels.

The worst comedy sequels: Rush Hour II and II, and the sequels to Meet the Parents.
