REWIND REVIEW: The Hangover Part III

The Hangover Part III

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms,
Zach Galifanakis


May 23, 2013

Todd Phillips

Warner Bros. Pictures

1 hour 40 minutes



Let's face it: the only reason director Todd Phillips and Warner Bros. Pictures wanted to make sequels to the 2009 hit "The Hangover" was so they could make a lot of cash back.  Luckily for then, "The Hangover Part II," while it wasn't even remotely as clever and funny as the original, made money, so a third film was fast-tracked soon after that.  Up until recently, "The Hangover Part III" stayed off my radar because I didn't have time to see it.  Now that it's the end of 2013 and a lot more time can be spent to revisit films from earlier in the year, I decided to give this film a chance.  Low and behold, it was actually entertaining.  In terms of quality, the film isn't really that good, nor is it well-made.  However thanks to the dedication from its actors, a somewhat decent script, and some nice cinematography, "The Hangover Part III" proves to be a satisfying enough ending to this unnecessary trilogy, so much so that I can recommend this one if there's nothing else to watch on TV at the moment.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
