The Wolfpack return for one last adventure that sees them visit Mexico and a return to the lights of Las Vegas, in The Hangover 3. Review after the jump.
Coming together to finish off the trilogy, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) decide to take the child-like Alan on an intervention trip to try and cure him of his immaturity. The trip takes a turn for the worse almost immediately, as the boys are ran off the road and kidnapped by John Goodman and his gang of criminals.
Goodman informs the guys that their old pal Chow stole $40 million in gold bullion from him and he wants it back. He tells the guys that they have to find Chow or Doug will be killed. So begins the search for the Chinese psychopath.
The Hangover 3 is billed as a comedy, yet the writers and director forgot to add in anything remotely funny. It ends up being a road movie and rather annoying. The Hangover was a funny film, yet the sequels haven’t lived up to the original. Instead, we have to sit through ridiculous moments, like Chow impossibly escaping a prison like The Shawshank Redemption, Chow jumping off Caesars Palace, Chow eating dog food out of a dog bowl or Chow murdering the Johnny Cash version of Hurt on a karaoke.
If you absolutely adore The Hangover 1 and part 2, then you will probably enjoy this. If you disliked them, then you will absolutely despise this entry. It’s not terrible, but it is forgettable.
