A PERFECT EXAMPLE of HOLLYWOOD's CURRENT OUTBREAK of 'SEQUEL-ITIS' (THE INCURABLE DISEASE WHICH CAUSES ITS VICTIMS to AUTOMATICALLY CREATE SEQUELS to ANY MOVIE THAT MAKES EVEN a MODICUM of MONEY) http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum-discussion-addl-info-on-hangover-part-ii_forum525.html - MAY NOT HAVE SUCKED as BADLY as SOME of THIS YEAR's EARLIER, BLATANTLY EGREGIOUS FOLLOW-UPS ( http://www.razzies.com/forum/oh-momma_topic4831.html - , ANYONE?). BUT HOWEVER GOOD, BAD or INDIFFERENT IT WAS, H.O.2 IS EMBLEMATIC of ALL THAT IS WRONG, and CREATIVELY BANKRUPT, ABOUT MODERN-DAY HOLLYWOOD. 

THE FIRST HANGOVER WAS BOTH a CRITICAL SUCCESS ( http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10010667-hangover/ - ) and a HUGE BOX OFFICE BONANZA (GROSSING OVER $465 MILLION WORLDWIDE on a PRODUCTION BUDGET of ABOUT $35 MILLION -- http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=hangover.htm - ). BY MODERN TINSEL-TOWN LOGIC, IT IS THUS ALMOST LEGALLY REQUIRED THAT a SEQUEL BE MADE to SUCH a HIT -- WHETHER the MATERIAL (or the AUDIENCE) CALLS for ONE OR NOT. 

SO, MOST of the PRINCIPAL CAST, and MUCH of the CREATIVE TEAM BEHIND the FIRST HANGOVER, ARE BACK -- ESSENTIALLY COLLECTING MUCH LARGER PAYCHECKS for JUST GOING THRU the MOTIONS ALL OVER AGAIN. SURE, THIS ONE IS SET in BANGKOK RATHER THAN in VEGAS -- BUT LEST WE FORGET, ONE of 2010's JUICIEST RAZZIE® TARGETS, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1261945/awards - , ALSO TOOK ITS FAMILIAR CHARACTERS to an EXOTIC LOCALE -- with DISASTROUS RESULTS.  

IF ONLY to DISCOURAGE HOLLYWOOD's POWERS-THAT-BE from SPOON-FEEDING US the SAME PABLUM OVER and OVER AGAIN, WE STRONGLY URGE YOU to BOYCOTT PAYING to SEE (OR BUY) THIS MOVIE ON DVD. IT SHOULD BE AVAILABLE for RENT from REDBOX for a BUCK AROUND new YEAR'S. THAT WAY, the CYNICAL FOLKS BEHIND the MOVIE WILL GET FAR LESS of YOUR MONEY, and (SINCE the MOVIE iS INDEED a SEQUEL and a REMAKE!) YOU CAN STILL FILL OUT http://razzies.com/join.asp - http://razzies.com/join.asp - ® http://razzies.com/join.asp - with a CLEAR CONSCIENCE. 

WANNA SHARE YER THOUGHTS on HANGOVER II -- and the WHOLE "LET's JUST KEEP REPLICATING/RIPPING-OFF STUFF THAT ALREADY MADE MONEY" TREND in MOVIE-MAKING??   http://www.razzies.com/forum/topic5083_post42037.html#42037 -  ...and FIRE AWAY!  



GALIFANAKIS: "Yo, Furry Little Dude -- How's yer 
script for HANGOVER PART III coming?!?!?"
