Due to the old-fashioned nature of a lot of Hollywood studios, it’s surprising that this movie was made. What’s even more surprising is the sequel will be coming out next year starring all 4 actors from the original cast.

It went on to gross $104 million worldwide and became one of 2018’s most popular comedy films.
