The Hangover Pt III (2013)

23 May

Not quite as well written as the first, but all the laughs are still there. Melissa McCarthy (though underused) is comedic gold, but Galifiniakis steals the show as the spontaneous wolf pack founder. Most of the big jokes all come from character material that was well explored in the previous films (the crazy Asian, a stripper’s child, and an insecure Alan) and the director fails to branch out and try anything new. The result is something that stays too familiar for too long, even when the film tries to be different than the first two. Most disappointingly no one even gets drunk, which is ironic for a film called “The Hangover“.

6/10 stars
