The rationalization for a third Hangover movie

— Posted by The Amazing Anthony


I loved the The Hangover.  The first movie was hilarious and had me in stitches in a completely unforeseen way.  A big part of the enjoyment was the fact that you didn’t see any of the jokes coming but when it came time for sequel many people, including myself, found it to be a little too similar to the first film.  Re-using the same premise of a group of guys waking up from a binge and trying to re-trace their steps was ingenious the first time, repetitive the second go-round… but there’s a rationalization for them retreading ground in the sequel and here we have the rationalization of them making the same movie twice.


It’s not so much that the criticism makes you make different choices. Rather, the criticism makes you start anticipating the reaction to your choices, and you’ve gotta get that out of your head. We always knew the third movie was not going to have these guys waking up from a night that they’ve forgotten because we understood that it needed to happen twice, so that the third movie could end it by addressing why it happened twice.


Great.  Say whatever it is you need to say to make me buy a ticket for the third movie by promising its different and will bring back the funny. I’m not buying anything til I say a damn trailer.


This whole response is predictable, and insulting.
