    Unlike most of the summer movies, which seem to be thundering into theaters without any real anticipation beyond the cacophonous marketing hype, "The Hangover Part II" seems to be a film people are unreasonably excited for. The 2009 original, directed by Todd Phillips, has metamorphosed from simply being the biggest R-rated comedy of all time (and winner of a Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy Golden Globe) to being a movie that average filmgoers consider an instant "classic" of the genre and a staple of any fun-lover's DVD collection.

    SXSW: Todd Phillips Auditioned Zach Galifianakis For 'Road Trip,' Says Unrated DVDs A DGA Violation

    Jamie Chung Joins 'The Hangover 2'; Will Play Ed Helms' Fiancée

    Okay, so Todd Phillips' "Due Date," opening this Friday, wasn't quite the gut-busting comedy we were hoping for, but that doesn't matter because in about seven months, the director will get another stab at the apple when he drops "The Hangover 2."
