Despite countless negative reviews - such as this one - The Hangover 2 has, as of last Sunday, become the biggest grossing R-rated comedy of all time. Surpassing its predecessor by a cool $20 million, the sequel is yet another addition to what I like to call the 'cash-condors' - a film that manages financial success despite its ugly looks and/or content. Inspired by the 'only-a-mother-could-love' appearance of the Californian Condor, these films share much in common with this unfortunate bird of prey. Both are vultures (either through family or financial ties); both reproduce at a young age (six for the bird itself, and probably between 1-3 years for the greedy, corporate film studios); and both have increased their numbers drastically in the last couple of years (all of our film choices have occurred within the last 9 years).
