Hey! Have you seen The Hangover 2? Don’t worry, if you’ve seen The Hangover, you’ve already seen the sequel. They’re the same movie set in two different locations. And now, according to Bradley Cooper, they’re remaking it. Again. This time, it will be set in Los Angeles, and although Cooper suggests that it won’t adhere to the same structure, we were also told that the second one would be different than the original and that Due Date was a totally different movie than all the rest of Todd Phillips’ movies.
The reality, however, is that Todd Phillips had one good idea, and if it ain’t broke, why change it? He can just keep crapping out the same movie over and over, sometimes with different characters, sometimes not, and as long as America continues to chow down on the familiar, we’re virtually guaranteed that The Hangover will continue right into the nursing home, where Alan will slip something into the cocktail of medications and Stu, Phil and the gang will fling the contents of their adult diapers at Mike Tyson.
