Each movie is a descent into revulsion:.

First movie: the good looking guy.
Second movie: the strange looking guy, who you have hopes for.
Third movie: you're drunk, and you think fondly of the chia pet your teacher with the b00bs had on her desk in 4th grade, but you didn't remember it being so slimy when you petted it. B00bs. Chia pet. Desk. You're cool with the misplaced modifier.

Could be pretty funny if Zach Galliphrenokolis's's character got hitched. To Kristen Wiig. That would light up Fark.
 
2011-05-31 10:34:21 PM  
Well, that just confirms that I'm correct in not having spent money to see the sequel.
 
2011-05-31 10:45:35 PM  
If its as funny as #2, I'm happy with it. I laughed quite a bit, and that's all I ask from this series.

I would be stunned if they got everyone back for a third movie. It's not that I don't think WB could get it done. I just thought they would be taking it the American Pie route for the forseeable future: Cheap, direct-to-DVD knock-offs.

Who would not be available for that massive amount of money? None of the main actors are THAT famous. They aren't Clooney or Cruise.

Hey, it might go the way of Scream 4.

I had no expectation to see that movie and I was very very pleasantly surprised. A very strong slasher flic.

I haven't seen the hangover 2 yet, but just because it's part of what seems like an "easy" franchise means it's going to necessarily suck

Jesus. The first wasn't even very good. Why would people go to see sequels?
 
2011-06-01 01:14:02 AM  
According to Bradley Cooper, Warner Bros was interested in a sequel while they were still filming the first movie.

Where's the motivation to try? Trying takes effort, and as evidenced by the American box office, and this film in particular, effort is completely wasted on us. Just keep spoon-feeding us derivative fart jokes, talking CGI animals, and 'splosioncarchaseboobies, and we will predictably and eagerly slurp it down, all the better if its in 3D for no particular reason.

I wonder if the third movie will have any mention of Stu probably catching AIDS or another STD...That part of the movie made me vomit. or perhaps all the alcohol I drank before did that. either way, gross

Oceans Movies disagree with you.

At any rate, people in American Pie were even less famous than these Hangover guys.

The problem is that American Pie went to box office poison shortly after. Hangover is blasting the heebie jeebies out of the ticket sales.

Having Ed Helms' character and his wife die of AIDS will be a downer. I was expecting him to get tested while at the clinic, but I guess that would have offended Lady Boys. Good to know the crew had limits

Haven't seen the sequel. Heard its the same premise, but the friends who went in knowing that already seemed to have enjoyed it.

Not a bad thing having sequels instead of reboots of reboots of comic book stories over and over again. Or "OMG the Green Lantern's mailman's second cousin movie is coming out!"
 
2011-06-01 02:20:20 AM  
I went in expecting to dislike the sequel a lot. But, a bunch of friends were going, so I went too. I thought it was pretty funny. Some parts were over the top stupid, but a lot of it made me laugh out loud. Was it kind of a rehash of the first one? Yup. Was it still funny? Yes indeed. Take the hate with a grain of salt. Reviewers (like most Farkers to be honest) enjoy showing off how much better and smarter they are than the average, unwashed, and stupid plebs by hating on anything that has even the most remote mass appeal. I'll happily go watch a third one.

It'll depend on if Todd Phillips comes back to direct, which might be tough because he's finally catching up to Apatow and may want to do something else.

If Phillips goes, Cooper probably will. He's got enough prospects as a supporting actor to get decent roles. I'd wager the third movie would likely be a spinoff starring Galifinakis and a new cast. And they'd probably have to drop the wedding premise since the kind of chick that would marry Allen would likely go to the bachelor party and get farked up right alongside him.

Plus, they can easily write out Helms by saying he caught the AIDS.

Hangover 2 uses the same template, but for the most part different jokes. I think this is a pretty good approach to a comedy sequel, otherwise what would the point be? I think this is more appropriate than where Austin Powers went (different story, SAME jokes). Considering that, I'm grateful they went the route they did.

I think as far as comedies go, Hangover 2 holds up very well to the original.

No, it has nothing to do with that. The truth (at least for me) is that I didn't laugh once while watching the first movie, let alone smile. There's comedy, and then there's complete stupidity that is insulting to the audience its been presented to.

Are we supposed to feel anything else but outrage when a movie series like this is so popular that we'll surely get 10-15 clone movies shoved down our throat because of it? Comedy, much like cinema used to be, should be considered an art. The mudslide of crap the movie houses are going to feed us is only going to get progressively worse with time thanks to garbage movies like the hangover.

Sure, you could laugh at that, if that's your sort of thing...

/Or something...

Who thought they wouldn't? You take $80 million, 2.5 months of shooting with little post-production work necessary, pump out at the beginning of summer and get $200 million in five days.

What farking studio WOULDN'T try to do that again? You'd be an idiot not to! Even if you do half the business you're still going to make a great profit.

As someone who has been a Galifianakis' fan for at least a decade (I remember watching his Comedy Central Presents special from 2001 after a rerun of Win Ben Stein's Money, that's how long ago), it's still hard to adjust to the idea of him being this big movie star, who has become so mainstream that he's now hated by many of the same people who at one time would have been considered the core audience for his unique brand of twisted intellectual stand up comedy, meets performance art.

So, they go to Amsterdam, wake up and have to find the guy who got lost. They were so drunk, they can't remember all the wacky and zany things they did the night before. As an added dimension, there will be a new person in the mix: someone who latched on the previous night and wound up crashing in their hotel room. Since it's Amsterdam it will probably be a stoner American college kid...bonus points if we can cross franchise and get Harold and Kumar to do a cameo bit.

I can has royalty check now?

Whatthefark: The Hangover Episode 3: Office Christmas Party


This...actually might not suck. There's a sort of anti-climatic feel to it. First Vegas, then Bangkok, you would expect something even more exotic. But no! It's an office Xmas party. There's a lot of office politics you could play off of. The Xerox machine is ripe with humor and plotline advancement. And that girl in the mailroom with the hooked feet is just a collage of all things horrible. And you probably had sex with her. I can already see the last line in the film..."Man, have you guys seen so much crazy drunken shiat happen?" HaHa! Comedy!

It's been that long?? Holy crap. I remember seeing the promos for The Comedians of Comedy and thinking, "Cool, it's got 4 of my favorite stand up comedians in it, including Zach! I'm glad he's getting work. I'll have to watch it for him." He's the main reason I saw The Hangover in the first place.

/Before anyone snarks about my love for Galifianakis, know that he is basically just like my older brother who's an artist and whose sense of humor rubbed off on me at an early age.

The script has already leaked:

Zach Galifinakis' character is getting married.
He invites the guys from the first two movies to his bachelor party in (CITY TBD).
They all say "oh OK just one drink" but Zach drugs them.
They wake up the next morning, and one of them is missing.
Hijinks ensue.
They think they found their friend, but oops, they didn't.
Oops, their friend was actually ten feet from where they started.
Wedding scene, douche-chill Mike Tyson cameo.

I don't think they'd have to be Clooney or Cruise to turn down another sequel. Both Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms are getting plenty of work right now and are generally considered to be "on the rise," and Helms was publicly shooting down the idea of a third Hangover movie earlier this year. They're both pretty smart guys who seem to have aspirations of being taken seriously, and I could see either (or both) of them deciding that signing on for a third installment after critics trashed the second might not help them get the kind of roles they want in the future.

Then again, I won't be totally surprised if they do come back. I actually think Cooper and Helms have both proven to be terrific actors in some of their "smaller" roles, but realistically, neither of them is likely to be attached to anything worth this much money ever again. It would be hard for anyone to turn that down.

Cooper was pretty decent in A-Team. I haven't heard anything about sequels, but that certainly seems to be a title they could turn into a franchise. And Helms is still on The Office, right? Not sure how much time that has left but he has to be doing pretty well for himself at the moment.
 
2011-06-01 11:08:49 AM  
I really wish they wouldn't, but it's inevitable. Hopefully Phillips and the studio do keep it to a trilogy because the second one was tiresome. Only two big laughs were cock jokes and they were about 80 minutes apart. The first hangover was a great film because of the novelty, sequels won't be able to maintain the audience. This one opened quick, but I doubt it'll surpass the first one because the word of mouth advertising won't be as glowing.

A test sooner than about 6 weeks after suspected exposure won't tell you anything you need to know. Then test again every 6 months for 2-3 years.
