plot

This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.

Verdict

“The Hangover trilogy ends not with a bang but a whimper which will leave fans disappointed. If you appreciate dark comedy, go for it.”

Review The Hangover Part III & earn 20 DM Points.*

It all ends...finally. The wolf pack reunites for one last adventure and they are missing that one element so crucial to the series, a drunken night of debauchery followed by a day of piecing the puzzle together. The makers knew the second one was criticised for following the template of the first movie too closely so they threw the whole concept out completely and set up something fresh, which oddly enough has its own charm, albeit a dark one.

Alan (Zach Galifianakis) accidently causes a vehicular pile-up on a freeway resulting in the indirect death of his father. The wolf pack reunites to support Alan but when they learn that he needs professional medical attention, they decide to travel with him to drop him off at a hospital in Arizona. Along the way, they are abducted by crime boss, Marshall (John Goodman) and Black Doug (Mike Epps) who demands that they contact Chow (Ken Jeong) and bring him to Marshall. Chow has stolen gold worth $21 million from Marshall after a heist and he wants Chow to pay for it, Marshall also holds Doug (Justin Bartha) hostage. Alan has an e-mail from Chow and they head south of the border to Tijuana, Mexico to meet him but in pure Chow manner, things get more than a little crazy. The action does eventually shift to Las Vegas and it all ends where it all began.

The movie finds humour in a dark, twisted way and keeps trying relentlessly to hit the mark. Sometimes the jokes strike a homerun and others falter terribly but credit has to be given to try this hard. While I personally find Chows character irritating in this one, I credit the fact more to his character overstaying his welcome than the character's quirks itself. Characters from the past have cameos and are a welcome addition to the last trip.

The script and tone are very different from the past movies in the series but thankfully some things do work well enough. Fans who want to see more of the original two movies will be sorely disappointed but this is a trip worth taking.
