It's inevitable that any raunchy comedy about a bunch of dudes getting into high-concept trouble will be sold as "the next Hangover," so expect plenty of Wolf Pack comparisons once the marketing for 21 and Over kicks into gear. Or, to be more specific, "a younger Hangover," since it's about a college student's (Justin Chon) drunken escapades with two friends (Skylar Astin and Miles Teller) on his 21st birthday.
Here's one case where parallels to The Hangover at least have some credence: 21 and Over's first-time directors, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, wrote the 2009 blockbuster's screenplay. Whether they're able to strike comedic gold twice remains to be seen.
