S10 // "THE HANGOVER III" MOVIE REVIEW....



"THE HANG - IS - OVER?"....

//BY EDUARD ( ED ) GARCÍA / E-10//  30 MAYO / 13...

 ( ED ): ( IN FULL - ENGLISH ) "The Hangover Part III" - The final installment of his trilogy will focus on Zach Galifianakis' character, Alan.  Who it won't be about, apparently - at least in terms of screen time - is Justin Bartha's character Doug.  Here's what the plot looks like:  After the death by heart attack of his father SID ( Jeffrey Tambor ), Alan goes off the rails - and his meds - engaging in the kind of outlandish behavior that, actually, he engaged in when he was on his meds.  But that's not the point.  The point is that the Wolfpack joins forces one more time to take their troubled pal to a place called New Horizons that will make him all better, and..hoo boy, cue trouble in the form of menacing dudes in cute pig masks and a scary gangster - looking guy named Marshall ( played by John Goodman ) whose head of security is none other than "Black Doug" from the first "Hangover".

 Goodman´s group intercepts the Wolfpack on their way to Arizona and tells them that he looking for Mr. Leslie Chow ( Ken Jeong ) who stole $21 MILLION in gold from him and he knows Leslie kept communications with Alan while the first was imprisoned in Bangkok, so Marshall figures Alan´s pals will find Chow so he kidnaps the real Doug as an incentive for Phil ( Bradley Cooper ), Stu ( Ed Helms ) and Alan to track him down and get the gold.....in 3 days time.

 Since the focus will inevitably turn to the remaining trio's attempts to track down Chow and save Doug, Bartha sits out most of the movie yet again...and I wonder how he feels about that.....

 "The Hangover" trilogy director TODD PHILLIPS has a theory about franchises that reach No. 3....which dictates that they all seem to get darker as they go on, but when it comes to the final installment in the men - behaving - badly comedy trilogy, darker isn't exactly the right word:  It's more like fø(K3ed up;  The third Hangover breaks from the "waking - up - from - a - blackout - night - before" formula that some found REDUNDANT in the second installment.
 Just how fø(K3ed up does this "Hangover" gets?  For starters, the very beginning of the film shows a giraffe ( bought by Alan ) meeting a grisly fate due to a freeway overpass.....and I thought, "Can an audience get on board with that?" "Maybe I'm twisted, but that was the funniest thing I ever saw!"....I'll go on record as saying that decapitating giraffes is reprehensible - but pretending to decapitate a computer - generated giraffe in the right context is totally hilarious....That´s without mentioning how this movie ends.

 The use of that previously mentioned plot  ( waking the morning after )  in both the 1RST Hangover and Part II is one of the things that had critics and moviegoers grousing about the by - the - numbers similarity of the first two movies.  Not that it affected the box office:  According to Box Office Mojo, "The Hangover" has grossed more than $467 million worldwide.  TH - II has Hoovered in more than $581 million.  TH - III can maintain that momentum, the question of whether its plot is enough of a departure from the first two movies will be moot.  I don't think so....but will let it to the audience.  Hope this review helps you guys A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE MOVIE OR NOT, I'LL GIVE IT A 3 1/2 OUT 5....BOSS?
