Some films don’t need a sequel. But you know if it makes money they will find a way to make one anyways. The Hangover is one of them. A rare gem of a film is that it was funny for how it was presented, the absurd situation it delivered and the actors and characters involved.
But now all players involved in the original Hangover have signed on for The Hangover 2: Hung Harder.
Warner Bros never expected The Hangover to become successful enough to lead to a sequel so they didn’t sign the actors up for additional films. Though it’s been expected that Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis would return for another day of delirium tremens, nothing was confirmed until today.
I have no idea how they are going to do another one and have ANY hope of this capturing any of the magic of the original.
Their stories are told. No where left to go but a happily ever after with a satisfying ending off in the sunset.
I have no problem with remakes and reboots, and dont even mind a sequel if the story has room for it. But when there is nothing to sequel off of, its just desperate money grabbing.
I think its great that this film did so well, and that these guys are getting work because of it… but I will have to see what they intend to do with these guys before I consider getting hyped up about a sequel.

Anyone here able to sit through Zach Galifianakises stand up? Its like being trapped in a cell with Charles Manson… Or Al Gore.
I think you guys are a little skeptical for no reason. As long as Todd Phillips is set to direct the movie, it’s going to be great. He’s consistently made good comedies, if you liked the Hangover, I’m sure you’ll like The Hang Over 2, it’s as easy as that.
We’re not talking about Transmorphers or any other pile of garbage production company, or anything like that. I would also like to point that almost all movies are made for money, you don’t honestly believe that they made X-men for the love of the genre?
I think the only spot that the sequel can go is following Ed Helms character getting together with Heather Graham and flowing from there. Original was hilarious!!!
Sequels are destroying the things I love D:
I have to agree with what 420 said if they do a sequel it will either be something completely different or the exact same thing in the 1st only to a different character.
If the story is done wright, then maybe a sequel is good. But I don’t think the movie needs a sequel. Your wright, I think there just money grabing.
The first wasn’t as funny as people have been saying it was. In fact, I barely laughed throughout the entire film.
Eh, I’ll hold my final judgment when we see a trailer.
They gotta go waaaay off the grid and head into another direction.
That or let the dudes have a Bachleor Party for Ed Helms’ character and do the same stuff again. Yawn.
the 1st one was……
Fun, but not hilarious as hyped
