The story: It´s been two years. Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are happily living uneventful lives at home. Tattoos have been lasered off, files purged. The last they heard from disaster-magnet Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong), he´d been tossed into a Thai prison and, with him out of the way, the guys have very nearly recovered from their nights prowling the seamy side of Las Vegas in a roofie´d haze, and being kidnapped, shot at, and chased by drug- dealing mobsters in Bangkok. The only member of the Wolfpack who´s not content is Alan (Zach Galifianakis). Still lacking a sense of purpose, the group´s black sheep has ditched his meds and given in to his natural impulses in a big way-which, for Alan, means no boundaries, no filters and no judgment-until a personal crisis forces him to finally seek the help he needs. And who better than his three best friends to make sure he takes the first step. This time, there´s no bachelor party. No wedding. What could possibly go wrong? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off. „The Hangover Part III” is the epic conclusion to an incomparable odyssey of mayhem and bad decisions, in which the guys must finish what they started by going back to where it all began: Las Vegas. One way or another...it all ends here. (source: hangoverpart3.com)
The movie: In the first movie everything was just right. In the sequel, the whole thing was pretty burned out already, but still funny. That´s exactly what you can say about the lat creation. The movie has boring bits and is occasionally really flat, but no-one expects the last part of the trilogy to be too deep. Zach Galafinakis plays a thoroughly insane egocentric man very well and his partners in crime do a good job too. A hint about animal cruelty must be given too, as animals are not sexually abused in this film –as they did in parts 1 & 2-, but killed. Whether or not that is funny is your own decision. Other than that, this film isn´t about taking alcohol or drugs, but being different and growing up. As this is the last film, one can be merciful, but if another one will actually be made, I cannot give any more mercy as this horse is ridden to death.
Conclusion: Will one watch parts 2 & 3 again? Probably not. However for a little laugh and entertainment, Hangover 3 is enough.
