THE HANGOVER PART 3 Movie Review




At the risk of sounding like I’m apologizing for The Hangover – part III, I have to say that trilogies are rarely able to top their predecessors and this latest release is certainly no exception. Part one of The Hangover, really deserved its kudos, and was quite refreshing and crazy-cool. However, part two was some kinda’ weird effort to have audiences relive that the comedic prowess of that which started it all. It (part 2) seemed to be a modified version of the same template from part one, where they just simply changed the locale. What a waste, that was! Now we are facing a part three, where it seems as though they, writer/director Todd Phillips et al and the producers, wasted no time in bringing us a similar formula/template and more of the same with the exception of there being no drugs, no blackouts, and no signs of a hangover anywhere. This is with a mixture of the same locale, from the previous installments and a different locale, in a lame attempt to compliment it. Quite disappointing, I might add. I guess the powers to be, simply could not think outside of the box, following the success of their first release. 

Needless to say, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, and Zach Galifianakis regrouped for one more adventure as the “Wolfpack,” where the “guys’-night-out-gone-wrong” somehow missed the mark once again. The plot seems very convoluted and ridiculous, but this isn’t the real problem. The problem is that by playing a crazy premise completely chronologically, and worse hastily, this film’s shenanigans feel illogical and subjective in a way that the previous installments avoided. It is like watching good actors play bad parts where you want to appreciate their efforts, but just can’t quite get there because of the stupidity of the storyline. And to make matters worse, the sneak-peak at the end of the rolling credits is a taunting reminder of the movie we might have had, instead of this exaggerated, kinda’ funny calamity of an effort.
