Todd Phillips Says "The Hangover Part II" is Better Than First Film

Posted: April 24th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Todd Phillips Says "The Hangover Part II" is Better Than First FilmSubmit Comment
"The Hangover" was a surprise hit of 2009. The comedy not only has an impressive 79% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes, but it ended up grossing a whopping $467 million worldwide on a budget of only $35 million.

Warner Bros immediately got to work on a sequel. And while the second installment ended up grossing even more ($581 million), many felt that it was nothing more than a copy of the original. That's the biggest reason why the sequel has a lousy 34% fresh rating.

But according to director Todd Phillips, "The Hangover Part II" is very different from the first movie and that the negative reaction has nothing to do with the quality of the film.

"Every joke in 'Hangover II' is completely different. My feeling is that it's the better movie of the two," he said. "I think it's human nature that any time people want to try something for a second time, people go to a negative. I think in five or ten years time, people will come to realize how brilliant 'Hangover II' is."

You are a f*cking idiot, Todd. The jokes are horrible. They are tired, awful scenarios that should have been in Old School. Hey, Hangover 2, 2000 is calling, they want their jokes back.

I think the only time I laughed in HANGOVER 2 was when Ed Helms sang that song on the boat. It was a terrible sequel.

You could have had Mel Gibson, ironic as it sounds, class up the joint. But no you were trying to...oh wait you weren't trying to do anything. You thought you should listen to the cast which consists of Ed Helms, Zach however-you -spell-his-frikkin'-name, and Bradley Cooper who is still barely noticeable as an actor even after his Oscar nomination last year and this was before that! Since all three are *ssholes in their own form or another, pretty much have only this series to fall on for fame, and have no actual comedic timing I think you should keep your mouth shut. No one even remembers Hangover: Part II and now most are doubtful of Part III. So please keep your opinion to yourself.

Todd Phillips is a delusional f*cking moron. The first Hangover is kind of funny and has some good scenes but the 2nd one is just a remake of the first one but set in Thailand.

If he was saying Part III is better than the first then maybe that's possible since no one has seen it yet.

"Taken 2 is totally better than the first one, and Jaws 2, and Halloween 2." - a f*cking idiot

"I think it's human nature that any time people want to try something for a second time, people go to a negative."

Yep. Absolutely. Which is why Wrath of Khan is worse than The Motion Picture, which is why Terminator 2 is worse than The Terminator, which is why Aliens is worse than Alien, which is why Empire is worse than A New Hope.

Shut the f*ck up, Todd. You know goddamned well you lazily and cynically and dishonestly rehashed the first Hangover into the second, and now you're insulting the intelligence of audiences and critics worldwide who witnessed your deception.

f*ck you *sshole. Disappear already and take your Hangover garbage with you.

Hangover 2 was definately not like the first one. Allen put the drugs in marshmellows instead of booze......

@mink
Well he was dumb enough to cast Zach whatever. Just saying but actions define you and this was pretty obvious. Never in my life have I seen a more overrated piece of garbage. He makes Jonah Hill look like Mel Brooks.

The most successful this...best of the trilogy that...whatever-the-f*ck-ever!!

Phillips needs to get on another f*cking project...sick and tired of these retreaded plot HANGOVER bullsh*t. One can tell it was purely a money-grab from the get go, but c'mon the cow has been milked enough!

The sad part is the public still had an appetite for this garbage to go see a third movie...

The only good thing that's gonna come outta this is Phillips will now have more freedom in choosing his upcoming projects. I expect better things from now on by the guy that directed OLD SCHOOL. Time to get him away from this mediocre comedy trilogy crap....

I think that part 4 will be funnier then the first three so I will buy in advance a ticket.

Uuuuhm.. No. The Hangover pt. II is NOT better than the first one. The only thing I laughed at in pt. II was the whole she-male-thing. "I made love with a man with boobies!" - priceless!
Todd Phillips seems to suffer of some kind of grand delusion (spelling?).
Hangover pt. II brilliant? No, Todd. No.
Take a look at -for example- Planes, Trains and Automobiles - THAT'S a brilliant movie!

The only thing enjoyable are the photos during the end credits.
Especially the one with Chang posing as a Vietnam war captive :)

I liked the Hangerover 2, and in my opinion, it's as good as the first film.

I also think you f*ckers share a herd mentality. It's like hearing 20 *ssholes fart at the same time, like one comment echoing the other.

You guys should be proud of yourselves and your vulgar, nasty opinions.At least you all agree, and that makes you special, and especially loathsome.

Sorry, but you guys are bottom feeders. Lead the way Mink, the Pedophile!
