How does The Hangover compare with other R-rated sagas?

HollywoodNews.com: UPDATED with end-of summer numbers. I mentioned last week that The Hangover series, with just two movies under its belt, is just under $100 million away from becoming the biggest R-rated franchise of all time in domestic grosses. In case anyone wants a comparison, here is a list, best I could accumulate… An asterix (*) means that one of the titles in the series in question squeaked by with a PG-13.

Obviously, to be counted, the series has to be predominantly R-rated, so Police Academy does not count despite its initial installment indeed being rated R. And you have to have at least one sequel, so The Passion of the Christ ($371 million all by itself) does not count either, but I will include remakes and reboots into the respective horror franchises where applicable. And yes, for those who care, I have also included the list of said franchises with ‘adjusted-for-inflation’ grosses. Enjoy…
