Despite the fact that sequels are generally a contrived means of bringing an original cast back together with predictable plotlines acted out by bored players just looking to get this thing over and done with so they can move on to a new project, some of the highest-grossing films of all time have been follow-ups. But as those who saw The Hangover Part II can attest, sometimes chasing the dragon of that first rush only ends in profound bewilderment.
