There are a lot of sequels coming out this summer, but the sequel that has the biggest question marks around it (for me, anyway) is THE HANGOVER 2. We all know it’s going to be successful at the box office because so many people love the first one, but I’m not confident it’s going to be a quality, funny film. One reason from my cautious attitude is that I feel like I’ve seen a lot of the film so far with a full length trailer, numerous TV spots and a plethora of stills from the film. And of all that, I’ve barely managed a chuckle or two. I think Warner Brothers should have gone the “less is more” route with the marketing for the film and tried harder to keep the plot and the jokes a secret. The secrecy was one of the many things that made the original so funny.
The film reunites Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha with director Todd Philips. THE HANGOVER 2 opens in theaters on May 26th.
