Director: Todd Phillips
And so ends the trilogy of The Hangover. Did I like it? Eh. It was alright.
In the final installment, everyone wants to send Alan (Zach Galifianakis) away to get better. But shit go down when Leslie Chow’s (Ken Jeong) enemies get involved. Chow stole money from Mob leader Marshall (John Goodman). So Marshall figured to pay a visit to the wold pack. Marshall and Black Doug (Mike Epps) take Doug (Justin Bartha) (of course) and give Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), and Alan 3 days to find Chow or else Doug dies.
I’m toooooo lazy to write the whole story. But the audience gets to see old cast members from all the Hangover films. Both Stu’s stripper wife (Heather Graham) and real wife (Jamie Chung) are in the film. Of course Doug’s wife Tracy (Sasha Barrese) and a plethora of other cast members. One striking new face to the Hangover films is Melissa McCarthy as Cassie, Alan’s love interest.
One of my favorite scenes in the movie is when the guys go to Stu’s old stripper wife, Jade. Jade’s child Carlos, aka Tyler, returns! So awesome. You know what’s even cooler than that? That older Carlos is the original Carlos from the first movie! He’s all big now! Real name is Grant Holmquist.
What I thought was cool was that this film connected all the films. We got to see and hear references from the films before and you really had to watch those to get them. It made the me feel including…I guess thats the right way to put it. I also liked how it tied it all back to Vegas. The Wolf Pack had to go back to Vegas and it felt like the series has completed it’s circle. Lastly, I thought it was cool that in the end, there were images of The Wolf Pack walking towards the camera in all the films.
Was this film that funny? No. But it felt like a satisfying ending to the trilogy.
PS: Bradley Cooper & Justin Bartha. Yum.
