MTV Review: The Hangover Part III
The Wolfpack return to Vegas for one final blow-out...
Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - 14:54
UK Release Date: 23rd May 2013
Running Time: 1 hour 40 mins
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, John Goodman, Melissa McCarthy, Justin Bartha, Heather Graham
Director: Todd Phillips
Plot: Following on from the Wolfpack’s wild adventures in Las Vegas and Bangkok, Alan (Galifianakis) is still living at home when his dad suddenly dies. Phil (Cooper), Stu (Helms) and brother-in-law Doug (Bartha) agree it’s best for Alan to be treated for his mental issues, but on their way to New Horizons the luckless foursome are ambushed by Marshall (Goodman) and his gang who are hunting for Mr Chow (Jeong).
Crazy cocaine-loving criminal Chow has escaped from prison in Bangkok and they must capture him to save kidnapped Doug from being killed. This time there’s no bachelor party, but the Wolfpack wouldn’t be the Wolfpack if they weren’t in an outrageous pickle.
Best Scene: They save the best until last, but Stu and Chow breaking into a Mexican mansion as dogs and Phil and Alan climbing down Caesars Palace should make you chuckle before then.
Best One Liner: Alan's speech at the funeral in front of his grieving mum: "I can't believe my daddy is dead. I can think of so many people I would rather have died first... like my mother."
Date Movie or Mate Movie? It’s the ultimate bromance, so go see it with your Wolfpack.
Scene Stealer: With the boys back in Vegas, they have to pay a visit to the sweetest hooker in town. Awkward for Stu, but Alan is reunited with his favourite little dude. Thankfully our bearded hero has brought his shades.
WTF Moment: You’ll have really boobed if you leave before the credits. It’s the hilarious hangover this third and final installment desperately needed.
MTV Rating: It breaks the formula of the first two films but even The Hangover's biggest fans are likely to be disappointed by Part III, which unfortunately is nowhere near as funny and enjoyable as the original. We still love the Wolfpack but we just wish their finale was more epic.
