2010 Guide Analysis: ""The Hangover" director Todd Phillips and its most acclaimed star Zach Galifinakis re-team on this older buddy road trip comedy with a script by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland that made the Blacklist. Reports from the set are that Phillips has another hit on his hands up there with his other well-received work like "Old School" and "Road Trip", while the director is whittling down his two-hour director's cut into a more brisk 100-minute laugher. Despite the typecasting danger of doing another comedy again after his 'Hangover' performance, Phillips claims Galifianakis' character and style of humor is completely different in this which should be fun to see."
