A nutty kitchen sink comedy ending on a cliffhanger designed to keep diehard fans of the depraved franchise in suspense about whether yetta nudder sequel might be in the works.
| Original Score: 3/4
It doesn't offer as many surprises as its predecessors. But it ties things up neatly - just as it should. I can see the boxed set now with all three movies and a bottle of aspirin attached!
Arrive with two aspirin and lowered expectations and the pounding in your head will be virtually nonexistent.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
It wasn't meant to copy either film preceding it. It's not a great feat of creativity, but at least it represented some actual work by the people making the movie.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Best enjoyed by loyal fans who want to see the end of the Wolfpack saga - as viewers looking for a bigger (and better) set of laughs might be disappointed.
| Original Score: 3/5
This final installment in the party-boy franchise... wisely drops the narrative gimmick of alcohol-induced amnesia that made the first movie so unusual and the second its pallid copy.
If you loved the first Hangover, you'll probably enjoy this one too. There's no tiger hiding in the bathroom, but it's still good for a few laughs.
Don't expect this Hangover to compare to the original, but it does supersede its dull sequel.
The surprise is that this trilogy concludes with a movie in which action often speaks louder than comedy. It isn't as consistently, convulsively funny as The Hangover, or apparently intended to be.
| Original Score: B-
They've obviously decided just to put Alan centre-stage and see what happens. Luckily, because the character is genuinely bizarre, and Galifianakis is such a smart actor, it works.
"Hangover III" is likable enough, even as it collapses in a heap.
The third Hangover film provides an epic, worthy finale for the Wolf Pack, with Ken Jeong's Chow again stealing the show in his inimitable way.
| Original Score: C+
A reasonably funny comedy, better than The Hangover Part II (not that that's saying much).
| Original Score: 6.5/10
Phillips has found a way to close this chapter of the series
The pleasant surprise of "The Hangover Part III" is a belated bout of adulthood has only made the extended-adolescent characters funnier. The result is a more traditional but more hysterical crowd-pleaser.
| Original Score: 4/5
Wolf Pack "threequel" has tons of danger, crude content.
This hair of the dog works. It may not be as good as the first one, but it's a whole lot better than the second.
Zach Galifianakis is in fine form, but Mr. Chow is better in small doses.
| Original Score: B
"The Hangover Part III" is a more proper follow-up to the original than "Part II," and Phillips gives his characters a proper send off.
Leave it, boys. It's been a blast, but you're over the limit.
