Hangover Part III Movie Reviews
User reviews on Hangover Part III
I was really looking forward to seeing this film and I hoped it will be better than the second one, however I was bitterly disappointed, the film sucked. I did not expect it to be as bad as it was, it was like a trainwreck, I could not look away. I found the film to be painfully unfunny and really violent for no reason at all. The jokes were mean-hearted and the story was stupid and not in a funny way. The film overall was tired and uninspired and the cast seemed to know it as well. Overall, I hope people avoid this film because it is not worth your time or money.
Definitely the worst movie I have seen in a very long time. The film was absolutely not funny and it was unnecessarily violent and heartless. I hated every second of it and it is such a shame because I loved the first movie. The story was not interesting and the jokes were horrible and mean-spirited, I wish I did not spent my hard-earned cash on this s***ty film. The film suffers greatly from a lack of inspiration and it seems that everyone on the set knew it as well.
I was really excited to see this film in the theaters and even though it was not as good as I have expected, I had a pretty good time watching it. i know that he critics are hating on this film but i kind of expected that. The film was a bit over the top but i still thought it was quite funny, well, definitely not as funny as the first one but still alright. I do agree with the critics that the film lacked creativity and it felt a bit like the actors are just cashing in. However, I love the characters of this film and I have fun watching them do stupid stuff. Overall, the film is probably not worth the price of the movie ticket but you will have fun seeing it at home.
I was really excited to see this film in the theater and I really hoped that it will be much better than the second one, unfortunately I was bitterly disappointed because the film was awful. It seems that this third installment was made purely for money and it is pretty obvious that nobody involved in the making of this movie really cared about it. The film was not funny at all, I mean I did not laugh once and it felt like an eternity until the movie ended.The film feels tired and unsure in what direction it should go and the actors do not seem to enjoy themselves. I was kind of angry that I have spent my hard-earned cash on this film, it was definitely not worth seeing in the theaters. Actually, I would not even suggest renting it, it is just not worth your time.
I can't believe that I have to write a review to see the movies times. It is just ridiculous. I don't have time to do all this crap. When I want to know what time a movie is playing, I want to just simply look on the internet and find out. but instead I have to sit here and write a review in order to look at all the times.
If you're lucky enough to be in a city where this is playing a couple of days early - Los Angeles, New York, Vegas, or Chicago - then you should totally take advantage of the early screenings and go and see it tonite. My buddies and I just got back we still haven't stopped laughing at it, lol! I mean: LOL!!!!!!!! Zach Galifiankis is the man with his hysterical portrayal of Alan. He is the whole movie and he owns every scene. Also hilarious is Ken Jeong who plays Mr. Chow. He is as outrageous as ever and you will definitely be wishing that they make a spinoff with his character even if the series about the rat pack is coming to an end. Special mention also goes to Melissa McCarthy who is downright riotous as the trashy store owner who gangs up with Alan to pick on her poor elderly mother. Their lines are so mean and so funny I want to try them out on a few oldies I know, lol. Definitely seeing this again!
At this point, everyone who wants to see the third Hangover movie is going to see it regardless of what any critic has to say. And that isn’t to imply that the movie isn’t funny – it is, and often riotously so. But it’s an angry humor that often inadvertently comes across as uncomfortable and disjointed. Could it be that it’s because no one actually has a hangover in this movie?
To be perfectly honest, there’s almost nothing comedic contributed by Bradley Cooper, Jason Bartha, or even Ed Helms. Every ounce of comedy in the film is delivered by Zach Galifianakis and, by turn, Ken Jeong, both of whom bring the absurd to new heights in a movie about mental health, depression, and the longing to escape. It’s a funhouse view of the perverse human mind – set in Vegas and set on fire. Oh, and Melissa McCarthy is also really funny in a teeny cameo.
Alan’s father has passed. He hasn’t been taking his meds. So his friends stage an intervention and drive him across country to a (how do I put this?) white rubber room. Along the way they’re intercepted by a big bad guy played by John Goodman who is on the lookout for Mr. Chow who stole millions of dollars from said bad guy. He figures that Phil, Stu and Alan will know exactly where Chow is.
But they have no idea. Literally, not a clue. But they have to find out. Or die. Or die trying. Let the hilarity ensue.
Whether or not you like (or even love) this movie will depend on your appetite for Zach Galifiankis. He doesn’t just carry the movie: he is the movie, and is responsible for virtually every verbal, physical and self-announced punchline in the movie. At times, the jokes get mean, but instead of toning it down, the movie just shrugs at the audience and moves forward.
A hit and miss capping to the beloved franchise.
