So you want to know if The Hangover 3 is worth your money? You came here because you’re considering watching this movie in theaters and shelling out half your paycheck to have the full “theater” experience? I’m going to tell you right now. Save your money. Maybe go see Star Trek Into Darkness or Iron Man 3 again. The Hangover 3 was awful. It’s actually the worst in the series, and not for the reasons you’d think. Most of the people I’ve talked to about this movie had the same predisposition as I did. I honestly thought this movie was going to follow the same plot line as the first two movies.
It’s a whole new movie with a whole new set of problems. No one gets drugged, no one has a bachelor party, and there are no pictures of what you really wished was in the movie. There were no redeeming qualities, no stand-out actors or scenes, and maybe two laughable moments.
The Hangover 3 follows the wolf pack again as they try to recover one of their friends. This time it’s Doug again and he’s been kidnapped by John Goodman who’s playing an angry criminal with a grudge against Mr. Chow. The three must deliver Mr. Chow to Goodman’s character or else he will kill Doug. Of course this is no easy task as the wolfpack gets into all kinds of shenanigans.
My honest opinion; don’t see it in theaters, don’t rent it on DVD, maybe watch it if it’s on TV and you’re avoiding mowing the lawn.
I’ll admit that I like the first Hangover. It had quite a few laugh out loud moments, and even helped shape some of the comedy movies we enjoy today. The Hangover II wasn’t unwatchable, it was pretty much a reboot of the original. The Hangover III was a last ditch attempt to squeeze a few more bucks out of our wallets.
OVERALL RATING: 3 OUT OF 10
I can’t stress this enough, don’t waste your time.
