Anyone who had the unfortunate experience of sitting through "The Hangover Part II" can tell you that it was little more than a regurgitation of the script from "The Hangover," set in Thailand and therefore featuring more racist stereotypes about Asian people.

Like the "Sex and the City" movies, one desperately hoped that the producers would thank their lucky stars that they were able to pull the wool over movie-going audiences' eyes enough to get them to show up to this ridiculous sequel, then pocket the cash and run.

But instead, the Huffington Post brings us the following atrocity: Bradley Cooper wondering aloud about whether the next iteration of "The Hangover" might not be set in our very own town.

"I think it will take place in Los Angeles and maybe not adhere to the structure. It might be different," he said in an interview on the Graham Norton Show.

None of this is a good idea. Some of us have clung to the few fond memories of "The Hangover" that we were able to salvage following the train wreck that was "The Hangover Part II" -- it would be best if we could now leave well enough alone.
