With The Hangover currently tearing up the box office, I guess it's sort of appropriate to take a look at the trailer for the direct-to-dvd sequel to Todd Phillips's first major studio comedy, Road Trip. Not that Phillips is actually involved in any way... this looks like something that should have the National Lampoon name slapped on it instead. Road Trip 2: Beer Pong is directed by Steve Rash (American Pie Presents Band Camp, Son In Law) and is written by Brad Riddell (American Pie Presents Band Camp, Slap Shot 3: The Junior League). I don't think I need to tell you much more than that. DJ Qualls (The New Guy) seems to be the only original cast member to return, although strangely, he is not credited on IMDb . I wouldn't want to take credit for this either. According to DVD Active , Road Trip 2 will hit stores on August 11th.
