We all know that Hollywood is like a recycling bin for ideas, but this latest one is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. The men in suits are hoping to ride on the coat tails of the mega-hit, The Hangover and I’m not just talking about sequel that’s already in the works, I’m talking about the writer of Fred Claus Dan Fogelman, and the director of Hannah Montana: The Movie, Peter Chelsom, teaming up to do their own geriatric take on the Vegas bachelor party. More disturbing details below.
The film centers on, “four guys from Coney Island, who, when we meet them, think they are invincible,” much like the other film (not, really but okay) who go to Vegas to have a good time. And of yeah, they’re old. OK… got anything else? Nope. I can’t help from this that this will be the poor man’s Wild Hogs.
Nevertheless, this idea is beyond rehashed. Audiences are already going to see The Hangover 2, now we have to be exposed to the GeriatriXXXs version of The Hangover? Leave it be!
An even better idea is if instead of going to Vegas, they go to Atlantic City. God forbid they raise enough money to get Clint Eastwood to show up as the cranky tough guy and Jack Nicholson as the friend who swears off marriage and sleeps around. I wonder who would play the old version of Zach Galifianakis?
What do you think?
