The Hangover Part III Movie Review!!!

A movie so bad we don't even want you to waste your time by reading our review.  If you're a sucker for punishment, then read on...

The epic finale to the Hangover trilogy is an epic disaster.  I haven’t seen such a boring film at the cinema in quite a while.  In fact, I didn’t want to even waste time writing this review but figured if I keep writing reviews only for movies that I like then everything you read here will have a score of four out of five or more.  So to keep things fair and make us appear more objective, here’s our Hangover 3 review.  We’ll try to keep this review short so we don’t waste your life reading about a movie that would waste your life.

The story is focused around Alan (Zach Galifianakis) once again playing the bumbling fool who is so irritating that in real life this character would have been murdered at a young age, most likely by his parents.   However, in terms of movies, this usually makes for good entertainment. 

It turns out that Chow (Ken Jeong) from the previous two movies stole some gold from some bad guy called Marshall (John Goodman).  As Alan is still in touch with Chow, Marshall takes Doug (Justin Bartha) hostage and gives his pals Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan a deadline within which to track down Chow and his gold otherwise he’ll kill Doug.  What ensues in and around Vegas could’ve been so so funny – but it’s not!

So first off the bat you’ll notice that there is actually no hangover in this movie.  In fact I’m not even sure if this movie is a comedy or not.  I counted that I actually only laughed twice during the entire film.  I wasn’t keeping track purposefully; I just happened to notice because the movie was so dull that those two scenes woke me up from my near comatose state, albeit briefly.  The pacing was bad, lots of scenes dragged and the whole thing just never took off.  The mid-credits scene is too little too late and probably should’ve been the first scene in this movie.  Ultimately, I just wanted the film to end and couldn't care less about what was going on.

Don’t get me wrong; I actually enjoyed the first two movies quite a lot.  They took the whole stag party craziness to another level, so much so, that my buddies and I agreed that if any of us ever had a stag party it would have to be in Vegas!  Unfortunately, what spark there was in the previous two installments is now long gone in this cheap attempt by the studios to milk the series for every last penny it can. 

It should be so easy to make a film about a bunch of guys getting drunk and doing stupid things, but this movie failed miserably.

A confused movie that doesn’t know if it’s meant to be a comedy or a criminal heist movie, save your money and watch one of the much better alternatives playing in cinemas right now.

One to avoid.

Rating 1.5 out of 5.
