It really is all about the Benjamins, baby.

Critics didn't find much to laugh at, but The Hangover Part II easily erased moviegoers' memories of whatever reviews they read and managed to smash multiple box office records, including the three-day total for a live-action comedy and the holiday-weekend take for any R-rated movie.

Plus, it nearly doubled on the original Hangover's opening weekend en route to amassing more than $205 million worldwide, according to Warner Bros.

Factor in that the flick "only" cost $80 million to make, and you get...The Hangover Part III, of course!
