Nordling here.

I enjoyed the first one well enough.  This one looks like it's more of the same, which if you enjoyed the first HANGOVER, that's a good thing.  I especially like Zach Galifianakis's pronunciation of "Thigh-land":

Devin Faraci has an interesting article about how comedy sequels mostly don't work.  I hope this breaks the trend.  THE HANGOVER PART II opens May 26, 2011.

Nordling, out.

  • I. The Terrible Trio and "The Kobe Project" CHOPPAH has learned, through sources anonymous and hidden, that Mr. Beaks, Nordling and Devin Faraci have been running a long game, using sock puppets to infiltrate and provoke talkbackers into ban-nable offenses to illustrate how Harry has lost control of his site and to purge any malcontents. It's all to usurp Harry, whom they view as a corpulent geek version of King Lear entering his dotage, and assume control of his site, his resources, and connections to turn AICN into perfectly functioning site with police-state-like talkbacks that would increase their personal wealth by whoring itself out to the studios. "It's obvious that Harry uses the site to get 'pweasants' from his studio buddies," one of my sources tells me. "But AICN still has its shaggy-dog, shambling charms. Beaks, Faraci and Nordling have been conspiring to turn the site into a pure revenue-generating machine." Their legion of sock puppets includes: JettL93, lowes forehead girl, chickengeorge, viggeo_morgenstein, william_faulkner and their oldest, most brilliant creation: hey_kobe_tell_me_how_my_ass_tastes, a churlish, thuggish reflection of how the trio views talkbackers. "They called it 'The Kobe Project,' or sometimes 'Project: Kobe,'" another one of my well-placed sources told me. "My God, do they laugh and laugh when they use the kobe_ass_tastes handle, or whatever the fuck it's called." All three of the conspirators share a password to use the kobe name, often at the same time, to infiltrate and rupture talkbacker "groups" such as the Baleback and its eventual offshoot, the Pedalback. Looking back now, using state-of-the-art textual analysis, it is obvious to CHOPPAH that kobe had to be the creation of more than one mind: he is often condescending, snobby, grumpy and despicable all within the space of a few minutes or posts. He is the love-child of a troika of pseudo-intellectual bullies, an avatar of their insidious, arrogant hive mind. But his deranged trio's plotting pushed their conspiracy to even darker territories. Desperate to find the ultimate coup de grace, especially as Harry's health problems grew to a near-critical phase while he was distracted by the Famous Monsters of Filmland website they coerced him into taking over, they despicably seized upon the death of beloved film editor and Quentin Tarantino collaborator, Sally Menke. They would make their power play in Menke's AICN obit. ... Tune in tomorrow for Part 2, "Where's Devin?"

Vince Vaughn as the cocky one coming out of a marriage he has had since college. James Franco as the young guy who teaches the others how to get laid. Hire me movie studios.

    Devin Faraci is a moron

    by Don

    After reading the first paragraph of Devin Faraci's article, he writes that he hasn't seen the first Hangover and then sarcastically assumes that it's funny. Like him, I didn't read the rest of his article but will assume it was a bag of shit.

    by Vincent Chase

    What a moronic article by Devin Faraci. He begins by saying, "I didn’t see the first film (I’ve caught bits on cable, but who has the time to bother?)" What a well researched and thought out article. So now people are weighing in on sequels that haven't even seen the original? Maybe The Hangover II will be terrible, but I will actually watch the movie before offering an opinion on it. What a novel concept.

    Fuck Devin Faraci

    by AmericanMovieFan

    I don't comment much on boards anymore, but this had to be said- who the fuck judges a film without seeing it? That's for ass holes who think they're above it all. Also, in that article he describes Todd Philips films as antics for guys who wish they were frat boys but never will be. That sounds like the gripings of a whiny douchebag more than it does a conclusive, objective analysis of sequelitis, which is a well known and often documented problem. Also, as for his issue with "more of the same" what do you call a television series? The fact is, that trio of actors in those roles in that situation worked very well together. Sure, the humor doesn't hold up exceptionally well, for it was funny as fuck the first, second and third times around. For those of you who hated the Hangover and claim nobody liked it, then how do you explain the nearly $300 MILLION box office? That's un-fucking-heard of. That's a phenomenon. That's insanity. I think your problem is that you have a movie-geek ego that precludes you from being able to enjoy a dumb comedy that so-called frat boys and jocks also enjoy. Your animosity towards the Cool Kids has spilled over into your job and you've allowed your own petty insecurities to seep into your work, rendering your opinion moot and a big old bunch of bullshit. I say STFU and let the box office do the talking for this particular franchise. As for you Zack G. haters- Hate all you want, but the man has a career and does a type of character nobody else can do and his movies make money, despite the supposed backlash. All you're doing is preaching to the choir and patting yourself on the back for your hipper-than-though sentiments. I say grow up, accept pop culture for what it is and concern yourself with more pressing and less arbitrary matters.

  • March 31, 2011, 8:06 p.m. CST



    Is this Devin the lead in to an April Fools joke brewing? Cuz that was a terribly written article. who starts writing a critique on a movie sequel by stating they haven't seen the first movie and won't see the second... but their shit? Fuck off. Don't link to shitty articles that don't have a point.

    Faraci's article

    by Inadequate Sandwich

    Is interesting why? There's no insight into the failings of sequels that everybody with half a brain doesn't already know. The only thing he manages to prove is that he's a condescending prick who thinks he's above "lowbrow humor" and has clearly decided that anybody who likes it is beneath him. So I ask you, give me one good reason why it merited a link in this article? Please, I implore you, prove to me why it was needed. I mean besides pimping Faraci for half-formed and transparent reasons.

  • March 31, 2011, 8:18 p.m. CST

    The article does have a point, though.

    by drewlicious

    The best comedies were only meant to tell a single story, not one spanning several movies. I would much rather see a brand new movie with the talent that brought us the "The Hangover" rather than "The Hangover: Part II." As for Devin Faraci, he's pretty much another typical critic who represents a profession most artists hate. He gets to pan the living shit out of work that he didn't have the talent or work ethic to actually make. And since he's on the internet he gets to say "fuck" as much as he wants.

    by PhineasFlynn

    original or not, I laughed at times during the trailer. Laughed because some parts were funny. That's more than I can say about a lot of trailers I've seen lately. Does that mean this movie will be great? Not necessarily. Does it mean I'll plunk down a $10, pocket a little change, and have a good time watching this with the guys? Yes... yes it does.

  • March 31, 2011, 8:19 p.m. CST



    Hangover was alright, just alright. However having a Danzig track open the movie was awesome!

  • Part II: The "Devin Faraci" Deception Beaks, Nordling and Faraci's plan took an unexpected turn when Devin, who had been appointed to rile up the talkbackers in the Menke obit talkback under the kobe_ass_tastes handle, ended up slipping on a greasy taco wrapper he dropped in haste as he rushed home to infiltrate the talkback. Devin cracked his head open on a rock, and he became comatose almost immediately. "It was nasty, man," said another of CHOPPAH's sources. "But Beaks and Nordling didn't care. They kept on going with their plan." Faraci's been in a coma ever since, and because he has no close friends outside of Nordling and Beaks, nor any family who cares, no one has bothered to notice that the REAL Devin Faraci has been rotting away in an LA hospital while Nordling and Beaks' newest sock puppet, "Devin Faraci," continues to blog, tweet and post on Facebook. "Look, I know Faraci is somewhat of a cunt, and a hairy, priggish cunt, at that," said a talkbacker who wished to remain anonymous. "But what DEƒUCK® are they thinking with this? First they create that tool kobe, and then this? A sock puppet for an actual living, breathing human? Despicable." Meanwhile, Nordling and Beaks went on to carry out their plan to exploit Sally Menke's death to purge the talkbacks of malcontents once and for all. Instead of waiting on hey_kobe_tell_me_how_my_ass_tastes, whom Faraci was scheduled to "drive" that day, they decided to make an example out of your faithful narrator, THE_CHOPPAH, and then they made a talkback saint out of D.Vader, dropping the Banhammer on both of us, among others. "In a way, their plan worked," said a former regular talkbacker who did not want to be identified by name. "Although the backlash might have ended up being too harmful int he long run. "Still, remember the wasteland the site became after Vades and others were purged?" he asked. "Or how william_faulkner was seemingly on every thread heckling anyone who dared stick up for Vades or you, CHOPPAH?" Indeed. CHOPPAH reminds you to also recall how "Devin" just happened to be posting on AICN regularly after betraying Nick Nunziata and CHUD while "he" waited to get "his" new blog up and running. This was none other than Beaks and Nordling carrying out their plan. So, all those talkbackers who suspected that Nordling was just a sock puppet for Devin Faraci? Wrong. It turned out to be the other way around. But Harry was powerless to stop their purges, nor did he want to, since he felt so strongly about Menke's death. Besides, Harry was about to enter the most dire stage of his rapidly declining health. And he didn't even -- couldn't even, really -- know what was happening right under his nose. It was uncertain whether he would recover, and Beaks and Nordling seized their opportunity. ... Coming tomorrow (or possibly tonight!), Part 3: The endgame, or a new beginning?

    by Schmiggy JK

    Its bad enough I would come across his shit from time to time but now you bastards are linking his trite shit here? Last click that POS site gets from me. Trailer looks great. I am not expecting them to reinvent the wheel here. Do what works, make me laugh. Is that too much to ask for? If they did something totally different everyone would bitch, "oh, that's nothing like the first movie". You can't make all you picky fuckers happy.

    Well, went from "Fuck Yeah!" To "Yeesh!" Very quickly......

    by SobchakSecurity

    Let me explain. I liked the first one. Made me laugh, and thought it was good. Galifianakis stole the show and made the movie, idk about you guys, but he cracks me up and I think his delivery/routines,etc are great. So I come to the site, see that the trailer is up, get that feeling of "Hoo Boy!" Watch it, starts off ok enough,again, Galifianakis is pretty much the only one who made me laugh, then it starts to go into "Yeesh!" Maybe a little too much like the first one, and LOTS OF YELLING!!!! AGAGAGAHHHHH!!!! Know what I mean? So, I think I will proceed this one with caution. I'm only looking forward to Galifianakis more than anyone or anything else.

    And for all this anti-Devin discussion....

    by SobchakSecurity

    Personally, I like the guy and have always enjoyed his writings, even when I have disagreed with him. Now for all this talk about prejudging a movie before you see it and such, well obviously, you can't really say it's good or bad until you watched,read,or listened to it. But.... Sometimes you can smell a stinker from a mile away. I mean, did we really need to watch cop out to know it was going to be awful? Do we need to even watch any of the twilight movies, the trailers alone show, to know how awful and empty they are? Do I need to see the latest Wes Anderson flick to be reminded why I hated him in the first place? Do I need to subject myself to the endless array of direct to dvd movies, some which can be good/decent, to know what I am in for after I've already seen 1 or 2? Michael Bay and M.Night seem to be good examples of this around here. I mean, they run a transformers article, and every one tears it a new one, which I have no problem with. It's just it is something we all do whether we want to admit it or not, and you know what? I don't think it's a bad thing at all. And M.Night's name seems to be instantly associated with crap. And for the record, I don't hate Michael Bay and M.Night? Well, as terrible as his last few have been, I keep my fingers crossed that someday soon, he'll come back and making something worthy. If someone describes there sound as nickleback,meets creed,with a little bit of linkin park and puddle of mudd thrown in, that this is obviously a horrible even if hypothetical band? If a tv show bills it's self as freinds, I hate freinds and thought it was an awful show, meets that 80's show meets, yeah, I remember that 80's show,awful isn't even the word, meets the jersey shore meets well what crappy show(s) you can think of. Get my point? Yes. You can prejudge something, or someone for that matter, at times. Sometimes judgement is a good thing.

Also, in that article he describes Todd Philips films as antics for guys who wish they were frat boys but never will be." Uh, everyone judges a movie before they see it. You see the trailer/adds, or in this day and age, you read about what's coming down the pipeline on sites such as this,and, call it judgement, I call it quality control, and you determine whether you want to see it and/or if it sounds good or if it sounds like crap. It's also quality control and personal tastes. I mean, like I said before, Michael Bay seems to represent this the most,esp around here. It's announced he's doing a movie, everyone assumes, and sometimes rightly so, and Bay is one of "guilty pleasures" if you would, it's going to be another Bay Fest, which depending on how you feel about him and his output, effects how you feel about his next hypothetical movie in question. I mean, you've never had an experience where you watched a movie from one director,I'll use Wes Anderson, I mean,I tried, I really,really tried to get into him and his work, but when it all turns out to be the same,and all his characters talk in the same annoying deadpan tone, and the dramatic and/or comedice parts feel like he's pulling teeth, and he gets what I feel is undeserving praise,it irks me, or in a series, say friday the 13th for example, and you hated it so much that it put you off from watching anything else from that director or in that series? Oh and yes, I love Friday The 13th and think it's miles ahead than anything Anderson does. That includes part 8,goes to hell, and jason x.

    by SobchakSecurity

    He makes a point and this ties into that yes, you can prejudge a movie before you see it. They use several examples of terrible comedy sequels that pale in comparison to the first one. Blues Brothers 2000 anyone? It also shows that sometimes by following certain time after time patterns, you can predict/prejudge it. Which I'm sad to say, looks like that's what this is.....

I was at a local video store earlier today, and saw someone discussing/exclaiming there like/love of underworld. Fucking underworld. He was basically another wannabe ghetto whiteboy type, a type of personality I'm guessing many on here, myself included, can't stand. I didn't say anything, cause that would be stupid, but I of course rolled my eyes. I really, really try not to be this guy. Same thing whenever I see someone buying a twilight dvd. I know I could recomend like 100 more movies that are so much better in all ways.The condescending film snob, cause I can't stand that type. But it slips out of me sometimes. This is getting into a whole other issue about hollywood,audiences,movies, and personal tastes. I could get into it, but that's going to be a whole other thing. I mean, all this stuff about being non judgemental and accepting everyone and everything is a bunch of bullshit. I know we've been fed this pc kumbaya crap, but it's all bullshit. Not everyone has the same tastes, I can accept that. But if you ask me how I feel about something I will tell you. I won't lie. Not everyone approves or likes your own personal tastes, and it is ok to be objective. Otherwise, you get a bunch of fakes and liars who just kiss everyones ass and has no spine.

    Bad taste

    by Inadequate Sandwich

    Is not the same thing as enjoying lowbrow comedy. And that's all I got out of Devin Faraci's not really an article about anything that was linked here by Nordling. As written, it was simply a way of slagging off what he perceived to be lowbrow and thus beneath him comedy and wrapping it in the guise of an op ed about the failings of comedy sequels just to justify having producing his snide, pompous little write-up. There's nothing in that article about the supposed topic, or at least nothing even reasonably well express, that a 14 year old doesn't know. So right there it's reason for existing is nil. Beyond that though it's an article mostly about how The Hangover clearly doesn't deserve a sequel written by somebody who has not seen the film at all and ignores the mass amount of people who clearly did enjoy the original film and would probably enjoy a sequel. And while we're on the subject, nothing NEEDS a sequel, unless it's designed that way intentionally with sequels already in the making such as the Lord of The Rings films, so that's a moot point in and of itself. Simply put, the article was not in anyway worth linking to and doing so was an obviously transparent advertisement for Faraci, and that's all.

    the problem with The Hangover...

    by BlackBauer0320 it just reached such a level of hype, early on that it had no chance of meeting everyone's expectations in the end. To me, it had a great first 40 mins - 1 hour and then started to lose a little steam as it got progressively more far-fetched. Even so, it still managed to be funnier than MOST stuff that comes out these days, and it's not like it overly-advertised itself as being the next big thing...that was really just a product of word of mouth. Good comedies are pretty tough to come by these days. The movie gained a huge amount of popularity because of Zach Galifinakis's breakout performance (sure, his comedy isn't for everyone, but it's unique), a plethora of quotable dialogue, and the overall likability of its cast (guys who had never really been leading men but demonstrated excellent chemistry). Does the sequel seem to be more of the same? Yes. Do I think they deserve a shot to see if lightning strikes twice? Absolutely...the $300M definitely would speak to that. A sequel like this doesn't annoy me half as much as an awful movie that leaves a cliffhanger, thus assuming that everyone can't wait to see the next one (The Last Airbender comes to mind). It's a little ironic that this talkback is full of people lashing out about that article when this website is full of people that make final judgments on movies based on 2 minute trailers (good and bad directors alike).

Let's hope Dr. Peterson (aka Assymuffjizz, perhaps?) keeps Harry safe, and gives him all the weapons he needs to fight. That's some fine detective work, Chops. Bravo.

    The first Hang Over was overrated trash

    by WaveBoy

    You know, as far as recent comedies go...I LOVED Zack & Miri, Superbad and Pineapple express but The HangOver felt like an entire step backwards....It was like watching a bunch of amatures trying to bust a laugh, it was just painful....I kept thinking to myself, so when does this actually start to get funny?...Sad part is, it never really does. The HangOver is one of the worst comedies I've seen in a while. I know we all have our different tastes and what not, but The HangOver was just pure lameness. I'd rank it in the same league as Meet the Spartans or Date movie.

  • March 31, 2011, 10:38 p.m. CST

  • March 31, 2011, 10:58 p.m. CST


    by BringingSexyBack

    Yes, I came up with that. And yeah, when you realize what that whole scene symbolized, what happened to Rocket does weigh heavy on your heart.

  • Part III: The Fall and Temporary Rise of AICN Nordling and Beaks had to keep up the illusion that Faraci was still around and writing his particular brand of smarmy, contrarian trollery. So, the two of them, for whom smarmy, contrarian trollery isn't much of a stretch, continued to write under the name of "Devin Faraci" on his blog, Badass Digest, and his Twitter/Facebook accounts. If people what the real Devin was up to as he attempted to dash home that fateful day in September, they might begin to ask unfortunate, difficult questions. Still, as time wore on, and the rage over the D.Vader Purges, as they've come to be known in AICN lore, burned, a mysterious talkbacker by the name of Gabriel_Grays_Cumshot_Frenzy began to appear. He began trolling the boards pretty hard, hijacking them with bombastic pronouncements that he had evidence that "Faraci," who had been posting at AICN through the wiles of Nordling and Beaks, indulged in child pornography. Gabriel began to threaten AICN's servers with a massive attack if they did not stop posting "Faraci's" articles and reviews. However, CHOPPAH has now learned, through several deep background sources, that Gabriel Gray was the work of none other than Beaks and Nordling. "It was them all along," one of my sources confided in me. "They wanted to attack the site under Gabriel's name and URL -- and they succeeded for a while, if you remember -- to shake Harry down into streamlining the place, thus making it easier for them to patrol talkbacks and implement their plan to eventually merger with 'Faraci' and his new operation, the laughably, pathetically named Badass Digest." This tactic ended up working, as Harry, whose health continued to deteriorate, had no choice but to "reboot" the site, with a slightly altered design. Unfortunately, and I have yet to confirm whether this is a coincidence or not, many AICN users' handles and passwords were compromised and even stolen. The site was down for about a week while Harry and his crew fought to reforge it. Unfortunately, the damage was done, and Beaks and Nordling's plan crept toward its insidious conclusion. However, a fortuitous thing has happened since then. Beaks and Nordling's plan suffered a blow as Harry, recovering from life-saving surgery, continues to make an unexpectedly strong recovery while assuming more control of his site. Many of the older and better talkbackers have stayed away since late last year, but some have returned to reclaim their old places in the talkback pantheon, including the Legend Who Walks Among Us, D.Vader. Beaks, Nordling and their "Faraci" sock puppet are still plotting, though, waiting in plain sight for their next opportunity. Witness the resurgence of Beaks as a leading voice on AICN and his and Nordling's shameless plugs for "Devin's" blog, particularly on the Batman reboot post or the new Hangover 2 trailer post. "Devin's" post on Batman was infinitely more detailed and compelling than Beaks' AICN post, by the way ... ahem. Witness Nordling's sudden rise to prominence on AICN, as another example. Harry may be getting better, but his power over AICN isn't going to last forever. It's only a matter of time before Beaks and Nordling push him over to the sure-to-fail Famous Monsters for good. And until then, none of us are safe. Not even THE_CHOPPAH. Sweet dreams, my CHOPlings.

  • But they continue to egg Harry into it, so he'll fail, leaving them control of AICN so they can "merge" it with the false "Faraci's" Badass Digest (hosted, incidentally, by the Alamo Drafthouse; is Tim League in on this, too? Hmmmm ... )

    A breakdown of americanmoviefan

    by SobchakSecurity

    This isn't a personal attack,so please don't take it as such. I mean no disrespect. Just pointing where I disagree. "I don't comment much on boards anymore, but this had to be said- who the fuck judges a film without seeing it? That's for ass holes who think they're above it all. Also, in that article he describes Todd Philips films as antics for guys who wish they were frat boys but never will be." That sounds like the gripings of a whiny douchebag more than it does a conclusive, objective analysis of sequelitis, which is a well known and often documented problem. Also, as for his issue with "more of the same" what do you call a television series? The fact is, that trio of actors in those roles in that situation worked very well together. Sure, the humor doesn't hold up exceptionally well, for it was funny as fuck the first, second and third times around. For those of you who hated the Hangover and claim nobody liked it, then how do you explain the nearly $300 MILLION box office? That's un-fucking-heard of. That's a phenomenon. That's insanity. I think your problem is that you have a movie-geek ego that precludes you from being able to enjoy a dumb comedy that so-called frat boys and jocks also enjoy. Your animosity towards the Cool Kids has spilled over into your job and you've allowed your own petty insecurities to seep into your work, rendering your opinion moot and a big old bunch of bullshit. I say STFU and let the box office do the talking for this particular franchise. As for you Zack G. haters- Hate all you want, but the man has a career and does a type of character nobody else can do and his movies make money, despite the supposed backlash. All you're doing is preaching to the choir and patting yourself on the back for your hipper-than-though sentiments. I say grow up, accept pop culture for what it is and concern yourself with more pressing and less arbitrary matters.

    Argh! Last one got posted too soon. Please erase if can.

    by SobchakSecurity

    So as I was saying.... "I don't comment much on boards anymore, but this had to be said- who the fuck judges a film without seeing it? That's for ass holes who think they're above it all. Also, in that article he describes Todd Philips films as antics for guys who wish they were frat boys but never will be." Like I said before, everyone does this. Someone here's an idea for a movie,or see's the trailer, and says to themselves, "Wow! Looks great! Can hardly wait to see this!" Or,"Looks awful/last one sucked/ugh more crap from (insert hated director of choice here). "That sounds like the gripings of a whiny douchebag more than it does a conclusive, objective analysis of sequelitis, which is a well known and often documented problem. Also, as for his issue with "more of the same" what do you call a television series?" Yes and Yes. Sequelitis has been around ever since they've decided to do more than one in a series. It's had it's good and bad parts. I mean,sequelitis is what gave us Friday The 13th,Godfather Part 2, The Empire Strikes Back, And Wrath Of Khan and Dark Knight, just for some good examples. Bad ones. Caddyshack 2,Blues Brothers 2000,and Son Of The Mask. As for more of the same, well, depends on how far they can stretch it. "The fact is, that trio of actors in those roles in that situation worked very well together. Sure, the humor doesn't hold up exceptionally well, for it was funny as fuck the first, second and third times around." We'll wait and see. But as I watched the trailer, I went from Yeah! to Yeesh! Mostly cause it looks to be the same plot as the first, which I really liked, and scenes of having people yelling instead of comedic dialouge. "For those of you who hated the Hangover and claim nobody liked it, then how do you explain the nearly $300 MILLION box office? That's un-fucking-heard of. That's a phenomenon. That's insanity." Populism. Minority against the majority. Whatever you want to call it. I'm all for financial success and celebrating it, but you can't judge the quality or lack of on money. It helps of course. Sure. Who doesn't want to make money and win awards? When they say nobody liked the hangover, it's usually hipster douches who think anyone who liked it is a bro dude frat douche. Talk about generalizing..... "I think your problem is that you have a movie-geek ego that precludes you from being able to enjoy a dumb comedy that so-called frat boys and jocks also enjoy. Your animosity towards the Cool Kids has spilled over into your job and you've allowed your own petty insecurities to seep into your work, rendering your opinion moot and a big old bunch of bullshit." Mmm. I try to expand on the idea of high brow and low brow. I mean, Billy Madison might not be Citizen Kane, but damned if I don't laugh when I watch it. I mean, whatever floats there/your boat. See, call this a contradiction,or call me a hypocrite, but when there is something considered low brow by film snobs, like aforementioned Billy Madison, it kind of gets to me. I feel like telling them to go fuck themselves. But when I see someone proclaiming there love of twilight, the mental eyes roll. What exactly is a movie geek ego btw? I disagree with the last part about animosity,insecurity,etc. "I say STFU and let the box office do the talking for this particular franchise." Movies are for everyone,and people can and will say what they want about them. If you let the box office determine your tastes, then your missing out broseph. "As for you Zack G. haters- Hate all you want, but the man has a career and does a type of character nobody else can do and his movies make money, despite the supposed backlash." I agree! I love Zach G! He pulls off humour that really isn't, and he's what made the first movie. As of now, he's the only thing that interests me about the 2nd one. "All you're doing is preaching to the choir and patting yourself on the back for your hipper-than-though sentiments." Well, people will agree with what they want. "I say grow up, accept pop culture for what it is and concern yourself with more pressing and less arbitrary matters." Uh no, if we do that, we will find ourselves getting into or accepting crap we don't like or ask why did we get into it in the first place? The standard definition of pop culture, to me at least, is usually something very hollow with some exceptions. Oh what? Someone didn't like the hangover,or ufc or entourage? 3 things I do like btw, who cares? If you like it, you like it. Culture, pop or not, is part of the whole debate. This is why we like and dislike the things we do.

    In defense of this trailer (read this, you monkey weenuses!)

    by BadMrWonka

    I saw the trailer for The Hangover. I remember thinking, "That looks decent. I like Zach Galifianakis, I'll definitely check it out." And that was it. Done. It was just another in a long line of could-be-hit-or-could-be-miss comedies. But the reason why The Hangover made me laugh hysterically, and the reason why it was such a huge hit, was that it was funny to (virtually) EVERYONE. You, me, my girlfriend, your boyfriend, Roger Ebert...almost everyone loved it. It was damn fucking funny enough that it hit everyone right where a comedy should. Now, if you showed me the trailer for the first one, and told me it was going to be like that, I would have been pretty skeptical. I probably woudl have said, "Well, hang on a minute. The trailer for Knocked Up looked fantastic, and that ended up (in my opinion) a misogynistic, mean-spirited mess (albeit with a few very funny scenes). On the other hand, Superbad had a trailer that made it seem like an all-male Juno mated with an SNL Digital Short, and that could go either way. But it ended up being a hilarious movie with a helluva lot of heart." (I would have said all of that...I'm talkative) So let's have a little faith in the guys that surprised the hell out of all of us with the first movie, and ignore the fact that the trailer is virtually identical to the first movie (except in Thighland), and just see what happens. After all, if the worst case scenario is that they made The Hangover again, but in Thighland...well...that's not exactly terrible, is it? I honestly think that the first one is our generation's Caddyshack. At the very least, this will be better than Caddyshack II, right? (although, Chevy Chase was fucking hilarious in that one) Bottom line is this: I'm upset that Choppah didn't include me somehow in his AICN conspiracy theory manifesto, considering I'm arguable the biggest AICN apologist that doesn't have a black box. I could be a double-agent! Seacrest out.

    Will follow the same path as so many comedy franchises

    by moviemaniac-7

    First one was original, fresh, funny and you can keep quoting from it. Second one, this, is more of the same but all in all not a bad movie. Will do as good as the first movie, financially, based on the strength and popularity of the first one. In a few years we get a third one as the cast and crew admit they dropped the ball on the second one and are going for "something really funny this time. We only do it because it feels right." And then the forth, fifth, etc. you see more and more key personnel dropping away and go their own way. And all we have left is one good movie, a lot of mediocre or bad ones and a pile of good intentions...

    Austin Powers series is a good example of ruining a good comedy

    by Dapper Swindler

    First movie, you got an original idea, some funny jokes, a pleasant experience by all (except for those few years we had to endure Austin Powers impressions by everyone we knew) <p> Second movie, the premise is stale so they take the same jokes and just push them further, make things even more outrageous. Nothing really new is added, just give the original movie steroids. (For example, the whole sequence where people see Dr. Evil's rocket and call it a penis or whatever - same joke, taken further.) The film is occasionally funny, but leaves a bad aftertaste in your mouth. <p> Third movie, pushing the same jokes things even further to to a degree where nothing makes sense and it becomes pure chaos. Goes too far. Not funny. An unenjoyable film. <p> I see the same thing happening here with the Hangover. Part 2 looks like the same premise with the same jokes pushed further. Instead of a baby, now you got a monkey. Instead of Mike Tyson, you got another bizarre comedy. Instead of Ken Jeong acting crazy, you get Ken Jeong acting even crazier. <p> And, like Austin Powers 2, it might still be kind of funny even though the energy of the original premise burns out as the same jokes are taken to chaotic extremes. But even if there's a chance that Part 2 will still be kind of funny, Part 3 certainly won't be. <p> Unless they actually do something original. I would have liked to see the same characters and the same style of humor, but don't mirror the original premise and the original jokes. Come up with something new for the Wolfpack to do. Keep it fresh.

  • and they did add something new, Mini-Me. But, completely agree about Goldmember, although I am an Austin Powers whore, so I found something to like about it, like the "It' a Hard Knock Life" video when Evil and Mini-Me are in prison.

    We're almost on the same page choppah

    by Dapper Swindler

    Even though most of the jokes in Austin powers 2 are extensions of the original, they are still funnier. So it just about balances out for me. But by Goldmember it just goes too far. <p> I think of it this way, with Austin Powers we are asked "Would you like a slice of cake?" And I say "Yes! Cake is delicious. I love cake! Who wouldn't want a cake?" <p> Then with Austin Powers 2, the question is "Would you like another whole cake with extra frosting?" and I say "Sure, I could eat another cake because I love it so much! Even though I'm getting a tummy ache from all this cake." <p> Then Austin Powers 3 comes along. "Now would you like to eat an entire wedding cake?" I'm like "Augh! I have diabetes from eating so much cake!" <p> Too much of a good thing, taken too far, without enough originality to keep the experience fresh. I fear Hangover is heading in the same direction.

    SET UP is the Same, Jokes are DIFFERENT

    by cymbalta4thedevil

    Why is everyone complaining about the set up being similar? We KNEW it was going to be similar! The movie is called The Hangover 2 right? Different LOCATION. Different JOKES. Different SURPRISES. When our grandparents watched a Hope/Crosby Road Movie, did they say: These two actors in ANOTHER foreign setting? And Dorothy Lamour AGAIN?! This is the SAME movie! When you watched a National Lampoon's Vacation sequel did you say: I can't believe the Griswolds went on Vacation AGAIN! Nobody ever goes on Vacation more than once! This is just the SAME movie in a different LOCATION! What did you people expect? That they WOULDN'T be gathering together for another bachelor party? That they WOULDN'T get drunk/drugged again? That they WOULDN'T figure out a way to shoehorn in Mike Tyson and Ken Jeong? They told us all that before they even started shooting! What matters is if the jokes are funny, and the surprises are unexpected. If they put all that in the Trailer, THEN there would be no reason to see it. All they've given you is: the Set Up. Which you already knew before the trailer even came out! I mean, I don't know if a Ghostbusters 3 is ever going to happen or not, but if it does, it's going to be those 4 guys. Busting Ghosts. AGAIN. Would having them fight Vampires or Werewolves instead make it a radical departure?

Just do it, pick right up where you left off, make the lack of an original idea part of the joke and run with it.

    ANOTHER exsample "Tim I make shit Burton" I can judge and say before everyone, every movie hes about to make will suck and be more shittier than the last... AAANNNND be right about it Before seeing them! This is a fun game Oh and hey! Friends was Highlarious, yet Archer is the greatest cartoon out right now and no one says anything? Strange stuff.

    I think you're trying to be smart but you're missing the point. It's not that HO2 is a rehash, it's EXACTLY the same script. Watch that trailer and tell me you haven't seen that movie before! Your point, however, is not completely invalid. Similarities between sequels is off course part and parcel of what they are!

  • April 1, 2011, 3:49 p.m. CST

    mr. ahole, thanks for that intel


    I will add it to my arsenal vs. astronob.

    Why did they have to have a monkey?

    by tradeskilz

    Fuck i hate it when they include a "funny" animal the morons can laugh at. Yeah i'm looking at you guys. "Oh look the monkey is drinking beer, haha look it's just like a human only small and retarded and it makes me feel smart" Whenever i see a person laugh out loud to a clip of a chimp making a fart noise or sticking his tongue out they fail my moron check. Sorry dude i will not hang with you.

    Love the first one... not so sure about this

    by Kremzeek

    I love the first Hangover. No apologies. It's fun, funny, well-acted, well-scripted... and a bunch of other stuff I know most of you don't agree with me on. I was actually really pumped about the sequel (though, I admit, I saw no real purpose for one). Now, I've seen the trailer... and with it all excitement has left the building. Since this is a sequel, I expected *some* of the formula that made the first one work so well, but this is literally just a rehash of the other movie. It's pretty pathetic, really. I have yet to dislike a Todd Phillips movie, but this one doesn't look too promising. A little bit of originality for the sequel would've been nice. Too much to ask for I guess. I'll catch this on Netflix. Bummer.

    That made me laugh more than the entire first film

    by DirkD13"

    No BS. I would actually entertain watching this. Then again, I fucking love Thai-land.

    by Kremzeek

    See, that's what I love about human beings - we can see and hear the same thing and react in a completely different way. This trailer didn't even make me crack a smile (though I laughed my ass off thru the entire first film). Variety. The spice o' life, my friends. Cool stuff.

  • April 1, 2011, 6:19 p.m. CST


    by DirkD13"

    Cool comment. I think the first movie is okay, but it's no Animal House. I quite like the music in the trailer too, it's got a sinister undertone to it.

  • April 1, 2011, 6:21 p.m. CST

    tradeskilz, what about a monkey pissing in his own mouth?

    by THE_CHOPPAH Nothing?

  • April 1, 2011, 6:23 p.m. CST

    Say, that monkey reminds me of a cuter Deadbeat.


  • Looks like Devin Faraci is onto something here.

    Hate the movie fine... But don't hate the monkey.

    by Andrew Coleman

    Monkeys are funny that is a fucking FACT! They are way funnier then you negative fucks. So yeah bash on Todd Philips, bash on Hangover and this... But you leave monkeys out of this.

  • April 1, 2011, 8:17 p.m. CST

    "I'll catch it on Netflix" = "I don't have friends"

    by Andrew Coleman

    I feel really sad reading comments like that. Haven't seen it here on this TB but when guys are overly negative and then say "I might catch it on Netflix" or something. I just shake my head and say "Dude has no friends". I feel that is the case with a lot of the haters here. They are just mad because they don't have anyone to go to the movies with. I don't really care either way about this movie, probably will be fun, I know my friends will want to go out and have a good time and watch it, I'll be joining them. So enjoy being bitter but I'm just going to have a good time.

    Darkman III: Die Hangover Die...

    by axelfoley

    I like the trailer. But Todd Phillips is one lazy piece of shit. It's the same premise with a Thai kid. And the monkey's what the baby was in the first. Yeah, cool.

    I've only read about three paragraphs of his article, but I've had to stop having been so compelled to comment. That is BY FAR the worst article I've ever read. Already. He only watched "bits" of The Hangover? And he wrote an article on the merits of a sequel? How ridiculous and self-assured is he? He's obviously a horrible human being. I hate that fucking idiot Devin Faraci. Now, of course, that might seem a bit harsh, given that I do not know Devon, but then again, I've given him about as much time and respect as he gave The Hangover. None. Next time he decides to write an artice about a film, and the supposed merits of a sequel, perhaps he should watch the original film. It's what anybody presuming to call themselves journalist/blogger/writer would do. And Nordling, shame on you for referring to such pointless garbage. DEVIN FARACI IS A CUNT. PROVEN.

    the cool thing about internet nerds


    they're intelligent. Unlike mr reggie_dunlop there. anyways. moving along. yall give a fuck what i think bout dis here trailer so imma give it to you hot and juicy. It looks safe, as many have called it a "cash-in." this is to be expected although the redundant nature obviously removes some luster. The trailer looks kinda funny, the movie looks well made, at least they threw a lot of money at it. I want to see it, and expect a B rating opposed to the A+ classic status the original received. I like Zach's new hairstyle, too.

  • April 2, 2011, 12:53 a.m. CST

    Hi Choppah


    I haven't been trolling here in a while. Did Asimov berate Zack for Sucker Punch? Does a dead monkey smell like a dead whore? whats all this about a conspiracy? is the illuminati involved?

    To Inception23Code and brechstky

    by SobchakSecurity

    "ANOTHER exsample "Tim I make shit Burton" I can judge and say before everyone, every movie hes about to make will suck and be more shittier than the last... AAANNNND be right about it Before seeing them! This is a fun game Oh and hey! Friends was Highlarious, yet Archer is the greatest cartoon out right now and no one says anything? Strange stuff." Burton is another good example of this. I love pretty much everything he did up until planet of the apes, yes even mars attacks, after that, only big fish really stands out as being good in any way, I think it's a wonderful film. Everything else and in between ranges from ok,to slightly less than mediocre, to why even make it in the first place? I think unless he and Depp plan on making something along the lines of an Ed Wood, they really need to take a break from one another. I would really like to see Burton do something along the line's of pee wee's big adventure. Better yet, have him do the new movie that's been in talks for some time. " AAANNNND be right about it Before seeing them! This is a fun game " Yes. That is possible to prejudge and be right, or it's as you expected, good or bad. It all really just comes down to personal taste. And come on, there isn't one director who makes your skin crawl when it's announced there doing another project and you know it's going to be crap? Allow me to run down the standard list of most hated: Uwe Boll. Brett Rattner. Michael Bay. Paul W.S Anderson. Steven Sommers. See what I mean? I know that not only everyone out there has that one movie series, director,actor, actress,tv show,book or book series or music band, that when they hear something new is coming from them, they roll there eyes in disbelief, assume it will be crap, and according to there own standards of judging quality, will figure out for themselves if they were right or not. I mean, do you really need to watch even one twilight movie to know how bad it is? I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do, but don't pull my chain. We all do this, so time to stop bullshitting. BTW, Freinds was an awful show, with awful characters,awfully written humour, that just tried way too hard, but to each there own. To brechtsky ... I agree with Devin,and anyone else who says, that you can prejudge whether you think, you, not anyone else, not anyone else's own personal standards of taste and quality, by the trailer,director, or reading about the project in development. We all do this, anyone who says otherwise is lying. Sometimes judgement can be a good thing. I mean, crazy guy rambling on the street and pulls out a knife, and idk, threatens to cut his dick off and throw it at people as he picks it up over and over. Does this sound like a good,sane,reasonable person to you? Ok then. As for Devin, or anyone else being offensive,derogatory, and controversial. And by controversial, do you mean just cause he didn't like batman begins or avatar? Oh yeah. SO controversial. Please. If you can't handle people saying things like that online, if it bothers you so much, then don't go online. All that offensive,derogatory,often condescending part is all part of the debate. As I said before, without it, we'd all be a bunch of fake lying people pleasers with no spine. We all think some ideas are bad or stupid, and have every right to do so. Actually, I think unbreakable was pretty good and his best movie. Cause not only is it an interesting realistic take on the idea of the superhero, it's also a rather interesting take on free will,fate,destiny etc. Think about it.

    by Phil Cullingworth

    Thought this might be a really lame cash in sequel but the trailer looks really funny. Looks like we get lots more Mr Chow this time round and he was one of the funniest things in the first one, so that can only be good.

    Seriously. In 2005 Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney made a short film for $85. It lead to the deal for the series "It's Always Sunny if Philadelphia". Surely any one of the comedy experts here can do the same.

    Galifianakis, meh

    by SunTzu77

    When I heard Galifianakis blackballed Mel Gibson, I blew this off. I bet he wouldn't think twice about working with Oliver Stone or Roman Polanski.
