‘Hangover’ Sequel! ‘Hangover’ Sequel?

'Hangover' Sequel! 'Hangover' Sequel?

As much as I really enjoyed The Hangover, and welcome the idea of a sequel, I just can’t wrap my head around how they could capture the same insanity one more time. A sequel was green-lit before this weekend’s smash opening, but after seeing the film for myself, it feels like the writers will have their work cut out for them to make a second installment that’s half as funny. Part of what makes the premise and the proceedings so enjoyable, is that random spontaneity of it all. What are they gonna do, lose Ed Helms this time in Atlantic City? Sample dialogue: “How did we lose another friend on his bachelor party?” Sample title: The Hangover 2: Hair of the Dog. One idea would be sending the guys and their partners on some sort of vacation, with problems to follow. Except, that already is a bromance comedy called Couple’s Retreat, starring Vince Vaughn and Jason Bateman (and out this Fall). If you want to add some input to this, Movieline is asking for your suggestions, in 25 words or less. Beware of spoilers, if you haven’t seen the film.
