After seeing the Hangover II, I thought it was not possible to laugh that much at a movie. From the beginning to the ending, there was not a sour moment of humor but to some, the Hangover II did not even compare to the first one. Yes, fans were excited to see Americas three best friends back in action; Stu, Phil, and Alan. Even though the new movie took place in Thailand instead of Las Vegas, it seems that they were basically the same. Although part II was very funny, it mimicked a lot of the first movies timeline… same jokes, same setup, and the same ending. It was expected to be a crazy hangover experience like the first one, but fans were expecting something different to look forward too. Part I created some of the most quotable movie moments in Hollywood history, such as the wolfpack speech and stealing a cop car. The second part did not have any of those moments, except for the ones that were mimicked to be like the ones in the first part.
It is hard to top an epic movie like the first part of the Hangover, but with a different story line it might of came close. In the Hangover I there was a lot of funny moments that just hit you and came out of no where. Part II, you knew those moments were coming because of having the same setup as the first one. In the second part, the movie was set up so that you knew that there would be something wrong with Stu’s face, someone would go missing, a weird animal would pop out of no where, and that they would all eventually live happily ever after.
But still the movie made over 30 million in box office sales on the first day, making it the second largest opening for an action comedy. Still, days after, the movie continued to sell out. Do not get me wrong, the movie was hysterical, but it defiantly could have been improved. The second part was designed to create another epic story, but from the looks of it, a year later, Hangover I still is better. Now, everyone is asking, will there be a third movie? Movies, like Transformers, have had sequels that have blown viewers away. So, will there be a third hangover movie to make up for the second one? According to Warner Brothers, there will be a third movie with a completely different plot. The rumor is that part III will be Alan trying to escape from a mental ward. Even though there is no script set or dates to start, there are defiantly plans for a third one.
Producer Todd Phillips said that if there is a part III, the movie’s beginning and ending will be nothing like the hangovers before it. This will be a good change from Part II, which seemed to disappoint and let down fans. The wolfpack has become an American sensation and we know, even though the second one was not as great, there is still the three best friends that everyone can count on for a good laugh. In the long run here are not many sequels hat ever have topped the first initial movie so if you havent seen the Hangover I or II go out and see it and decide for yourself.
