Rating: MA 15+
Starring: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Jeffrey Tambor, Justin Bartha, Jamie Chung, John Goodman, Melissa McCarthy
The film begins two years after the events in Bangkok (The Hangover Part II). We first see Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) escape from a maximum security prison. Back in America, Alan (Zach Galifianakis) causes a 20-car freeway pileup. The aftermath of this is catastrophic, and the pressure on his family becomes too much. They can no longer deal with his behaviour. They decide to stage an intervention in the hopes that it will help him to grow up. They do this with the aid of The Wolf Pack: Doug (Justin Bartha), Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms).
Alan has been off his ADHD medication, which has contributed to his out of control behaviour. Alan agrees to visit a rehab facility in Arizona on the condition that “The Wolfpack” transports him there. But they meet with trouble on the road, and this trouble will eventually lead them back to Chow…
As farfetched as the first two, this movie is an enjoyable watch. I didn’t find it quite as funny as the first two, but it was still quite hilarious, especially any scene that featured Ken Jeong. Zach Galifianakis is another scene-stealer and source of hilarity, the character of Alan is just too much at times. There’s also a very funny and cringe-worthy scene that features Melissa McCarthy. All in all this is movie to watch if you’re after some laughs.
“The Hangover Part III” is available now at Civic Warwick on DVD and Bluray.
