Review: The Hangover Part III

The finale of the Wolf Pack saga. The end of Alan (Zach Galifianakis)'s goof-ups. The last misadventure with roofies.

Well technically, there wasn't any misadventure with roofies here (SPOILER ALERT!). They were all hungover after the movie, when the credits were rolling. After Zach got married to Cassie (Melissa McCarthy), that's when things got hazy. That's because the whole movie adventure really didn't involve any hangovers to begin with. It got kickstarted by Marshall (John Goodman) kidnappping Doug (Justin Bartha).

A.k.a. "The dude who always doesn't get to join the (mis)adventures.

And the reason for the kidnappipng?

This Asian guy!

Now if you haven't been following the whole Hangover series, you wouldn't know what Marshall was talking about when he said Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) was the reason they're kidnapping Doug in the first place. He double-crossed Marshall by stealing half his loot in gold bars and wasting it all in Thailand. He even did a Shawshank Redemption (digging a hole in the wall behind a poster) when he escaped prison. Cool!

Not an accomplice.

The ransom for Doug's release is Mr. Chow himself. So the pack go scrambling for Mr. Chow 'till they meet him up in Tijuana, Mexico. Unfortunately, the other half of gold that they got from Chow belonged to Marshall himself. So now they were double-screwed! Good thing a phone app was able to help them track Mr. Chow down. And guess where they found him: in the city that started this franchise. Las fuckin' Vegas!

Now even in Vegas, there were no hangovers. It just all happened in the end. Where they were once again drugged with roofies. And guess who roofied the wedding cake?

Yep, the Asian guy.

Not the plot that I was expecting, and definitely not the usual Hangover flick. But it's all worth it. Especially the ending. You know that dentist Stu who had his tooth knocked off and Tyson's tatt on his face? Well he had a very special ending for this. I don't really want to spoil it for those who haven't watched it yet. Let's just say it involved silicon.

Overall rating for this flick is 3.5/5.

Nice review. Maybe it could have relaxed on the plot, and gone more with the humor that seemed to be absent from this finale.
