Wild Hogs 2: Bachelor Ride, the sequel to Wild Hogs 1: Seriously, America? has been canceled by the Walt Disney Corporation. The full reasons were not explained, although this article at Variety suggests that it might have something to do with the failure of Old Dogs, and/or the arrival of a new studio head who is focusing Disney’s energies on returning the brand to its more consistently family friendly fare. Uh, WHO CARES! Anything written about this story should just have the headline “Wild Hogs 2 Canceled” and then underneath that “Good.” Let’s not bury the lede on this one, Journalism. In some bonus news (bonus news!), Wedding Banned, a comedy starring Robin Williams and Anna Faris about a father who kidnaps his daughter to prevent her from getting married, has also been canceled. Again: no explanation necessary. Sometimes it’s just nice to be happy about something without worrying too much about the whosis and whatses. These guys know what I’m talking about.

  1. sometimes justice exists in this world. happy holidays from disney.

  2. <–Me right now.

  3. someone in america is sad right now. it’s probably the lady in the theatrer who was dying laughing during the gorilla/seth green scene in old dogs. yes, i saw old dogs – family always goes to the movies on thanksgiving, and it was old dogs or 2012…

  4. Nooooooo!!!!! Guess I’ll just have to keep acting out my own version of Old Dogs 2 with my Danny Zuko and Genie from Aladdin dolls! (I’m lying, I use four piles of dirt and my imagination!)

  5. Good. I’m going to ask Santa for some shares of Disney stock.

    Am I in the right place? This is madmoneyfinancegum right?

  6. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.

  7. Answer: Travolta.

  8. I suspect that the new head of Disney was visited by a creature of blood and bone, fueled by our collective hate and despair. Its gaping maw held the torment of all the souls forced to watch Old Dogs 1, and the executive, in one last moment of sanity – one moment of heroism before succumbing to the eternal void – gasped “What hath we wrought upon the world?” and rent the script in twain with the superhuman strength of the damned. Mystery solved!!!!!!!

  9. When reached for comment Mr. Allen would only say uh uh uh rawoooo

    “I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment’s gone
    All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
    Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind.”

  11. i guess you just can’t teach Old Dogs new tricks?


  12. I care. Wild Hogs 2 was the last sign before the apocalypse.

  13. Now I’ll never know if those hogs were tamed!

  14. But then what movie will Hot Tub Time Machine 2 make fun of?

  15. The “Box Office Poison” tag may be my favourite of all tags. The funniest thing ever uttered on a late night talk show.

  16. Patch Adams 2 is still a go, yes?

  17. I’m looking for to that Disney exec canceling lots of other bad things too like the recession, George Stephanopolous on Good Morning America, and 2012. Let’s just skip the whole end of the world thing altogether. 2013 yo!

  18. You know what this means…”Hot Tub Time Machine 2: More Bonding Just Like Wild Hogs 2″ is now in jeopardy. Thanks for ruining every middle-aged dad’s Christmas, Disney.

  19. I thought Old Dogs WAS the sequel to Wild Hogs….. I guess that’s why no one knew what I meant when I was making all of those Old Dogs: 2Wild 2Hogs jokes….

  20. Famed character actor Stephen Tobolowsky talks about working on Wild Hogs on the third episode of his podcast, “The Tobolowsky Files”. Monsters should check it out; it’s like listening to your dad tell stories, except your dad has a sense of humor and is a professional actor. (www.thetobolowskyfiles.com)

  21. Interesting that these movies got scrapped immediately after the death of Walt Disney’s nephew. hmmmmm

  22. Hip Hip Hooray!

  23. It’s sad really. I remember the days when Disney execs were PASSIONATE about dragging the Disney name through the mud. But now that Roy’s not around to feel the shame, what’s the point? They’re just going through the motions now.

  24. I know Martin Lawrence’s explanation, but how did Bill Macy end up in this ensemble of disasters?

    Who is the market for this is what I’m wondering. Is the nation really this bad off?

    I know the answer, I just want to pretend it’s not real.

  25. am really up set they are not making wild hogs2. i really like the first one . i watch it over and over. ithink they should make a second one. the first one was really funny i loved all the characters. william macy was raised in cumberland where i live. they can make second parts to other movies that are really stupid. i know this would be good because of the four main charters. they are all funny.i would rather watch movies over and over again that is really funny. then watching those stupid reality shows because they are all dumb. why dont you ask john martin tim and william if they would like to make another one. a very disappoinent fan. sharon
