‘The Hangover: Part 3’ review
By Steven Cayer, Contributor
The first thing I’d like to say is, contrary to almost everyone who saw The Hangover Part 3, I liked it. Director Todd Phillips, who also co-wrote the screenplay, decided to change the formula for this third and final installment of the “Wolfpack” trilogy.
Hangover 3 focuses on the characters of Alan (Zach Galifianakis), who is trying to become a better, more adult person (which obviously will be a hassle and a half), and Leslie Chow, played by the always hilarious Ken Jeong. However, if you haven’t seen the first two movies, you probably won’t get a few jokes in this one. The film starts off really strong with Chow escaping from a Thai prison Shawshank-style, before stealing gold from big-time crook Marshall, played by John Goodman. At Marshall’s insistence, the Wolfpack seems to be his only chance at finding Chow, and putting Chow away once and for all.
I enjoyed Hangover 3 because, and the end of the day, it was funny, certainly different from the last two, and goes in a really good direction. I should say that I had low expectations going into this movie, but luckily it did not disappoint. Hangover 3 is definitely a movie to see with your friends. Oh yeah, and when the movie’s over, just wait a few minutes. Trust me.
