Wedding Crashers Sequel Is Still A Possibility Says David Dobkin

Wedding Crashers was one of the bigger comedy hits of the 2000's, starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as a pair of man-children who crash weddings to hook up with women. Its a problematic film looking back, but it made a ton of money, so sequel rumors pop up every now and again. In a recent chat with Collider, director David Dobkin said that while for ten years he has said no about making a Wedding Crashers 2, now he has an idea that he likes enough to try and get it made. Spoiler: it is not a good idea.

Wedding Crashers 2: No Thanks

"Everybody keeps hitting me up about a Wedding Crashers sequel. We don't have a script that we're there with yet. For many, many years every year, I got offered to do the sequel, there were some very big deals on the table. And none of us wanted to do a retread of the same movie again. Anything within those first years that we talked about was the same movie, and we were like, 'Why?' Financially I probably shouldn't have done that, but I did (laughs). And Vince and Owen didn't want to do it either."

"10 years later, when I was asked again, and I hung up the phone after saying no, I thought about it, and I'm like, 'Well I'd be curious what it'd be like for guys in their late 40s who end up being single again and have to go back out in the world. What a weird, difficult, challenging story that is.' And as long as there's a real story in the middle of it, to me, it can be a movie."

Uhh, how many ways can I say "no thanks". Nothing about that story sounds weird, difficult, or challenging. It sounds like a pretty common occurrence actually, and while Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn are talented actors, that story idea literally sounds like about a dozen films that come out every year. How about we just admit not every movie needs a sequel and let Wedding Crashers live in the past.
