The Hangover Cast are the “Hollywood Movie Stars of the Week”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And Todd Phillips’ original “Hangover” certainly wasn’t broke.

Earning $467 million worldwide, the story of three mean-spirited bachelor party buds became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time.

A sequel was inevitable. “The Hangover Part II,” which opened at midnight on Wednesday, shifts the location from Las Vegas to Bangkok and boasts a darker streak … but doesn’t change much. Same hangover, same shenanigans. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis develop their characters a little, and they gross out their audience a lot. But that’s what you pay for when you buy a ticket to Phillips’ hangover, and the comedy sequel certainly delivers in spades.

Want to know what else hasn’t changed? The “Hangover” continues to make money. THR reports that the sequel earned a staggering $10.4 million from midnight screenings alone. It is setting up to be a MASSIVE weekend for “The Hangover Part II.” And that’s why we are very pleased to announce that Helms, Cooper and Galifianakis have been named our “Hollywood Movie Stars of the Week.”
