Comedy - Like the first two films in the series, this is a crude comedy aimed
primarily at the young adult male audience though it does not follow
the same mystery format of the previous movies. Fans of the
returning core trio will enjoy though the focus this time is squarely
on Zach Galifianakis. Constant crude humor and profanity, some sex,
drugs, and nudity make the film inappropriate for children.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; 25 S-words; 3 GD's; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Male and female non-sexual nudity. VIOLENCE: Fights, shootings, animal killings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, implied drug use. ACTION: Chases and fights. COMEDY: Wisecracks, banter, slapstick, sometimes suggestive.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 54 moviegoers:
TEENS:The male and female reviews are nearly identical, half loved "Hangover Part III." Another quarter enjoyed it very much but the remaining quarter rated it low to terrible.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Four of the males loved it, one rated it above average, one rated it average and the last one rated it below average. Both the females loved "Hangover Part III."
ADULTS:For a silly comedy, these are very good reviews. Half the males loved it as did half the ladies. Another 20% of the males rated it above average. The remaining 30% rated it average, which isn't bad considering the type of movie this is. The ladies rated it similar to the males but a few of them rated it very low.
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.
