Shenanigans and disasters ensue (don't they always?), including attending a get-together that Caplan's character describes as "Jane Austen on crack" and the unfortunate destruction of the weddin...

IslaFisher220
"The Hangover" was a surprise hit in 2009 and, since then, every studio has pushed their own raunchy, R-rated comedies into production in hopes of replicating the film's success.

According to the L.A. Times, Isla Fisher ("Wedding Crashers," "Confessions of a Shopaholic") is set to star in "Desperados," described as a female "Hangover" set during a road trip. Since "The Hangover" was essentially a self-contained road movie around the seedier parts of Vegas, the movie should follow the formula quite closely.

The script was written by Ellen Rapoport and previously held a spot on the coveted...
