The Hangover Part II is the biggest R-rated comedy ever

The Wolfpack is unstoppable

The Hangover: Part II has become the biggest R-rated comedy ever.

There were very high expectations for the sequel to what many would refer to as ‘the’ comedy of 2009.

The Hangover 2 must have done something right, as it is now the biggest R-rated comedy ever.

It opened three weeks ago in America, and has since experienced storming success at the worldwide box office.

The Hangover
reached $467.5 million worldwide at the box office; only 3 weeks in and its follow-up has reached $488.7 million worldwide.

Interestingly TheHangover: Part II has taken more money internationally than it has domestically; impressive for any American film, especially a comedy.

The Wolfpack proved popular in the UK the second time around, taking £10,409,017 in its opening weekend, compared to the first instalment's £2,249,747.

Still going strong at the UK box Office, The Hangover: Part II stands at number 2, beating X-Men: First Class into third place (and that one has been out for one week less than Hangover 2).

Does The Hangover: Part II deserve its success? Are you up for Part III? Let us know!

      I still dont understand its appeal. I mean the first one was ok. Nothing special to be honest in my opinion. Then this one gets poorer reviews and makes even more money.

      Depressing, for a second there I thought it was going to be Midnight in Paris.

      Plebeians will lap up anything, just look at the box office those atrocious Transformers movies pull in. Saying that though, I did enjoy the first one.
