Review: The Hangover: Part III

The Hangover: Part III
Only now that it has reached its merciful conclusion, we can see that The Hangover trilogy plays out a lot like a night of drunken excess. To start with, everything you say or do seems riotously funny and original. Then, as the night grows old, the attention goes to your head; you begin to repeat yourself, and your humour takes on a nasty edge. Finally, three sheets to the wind and completely intoxicated on your own brilliance, you become boorish, hateful, unnecessarily violent, idiotic and completely unrecognisable from the man you once were. That's certainly how my Saturday nights usually pan out, anyway.

Meet Barry, the key to the Todd Phillips Movieverse
Todd Phillips' movies might be the basest comedies known to man, but they are home to a rather fun recurring cameo by the director himself: sort of like Nick Fury if Nick Fury was a total skeezeball.

Insufferable berk of the day
Speaking in an Empire interview, Phillips went on to defend the $500m sequel, saying "It annoys me when people say it's lazy," before clarifying: "Yes, we do a wake-up and a blackout, but every joke in Hangover II is completely different." I think he means they're literally not the same jokes. Like, he didn't just re-use the old footage. Set your watch for April 2023.

The new poster for The Hangover: Part III is here, and Ken Jeong looks more punchable than ever, even in two dimensions. Is Jeong the most annoying actor working in Hollywood? (Spoiler: he is).

The Hangover: Part II
"It happened again..." groans Bradley Cooper down the phone in The Hangover: Part II's opening scene. "Worse than you can even imagine." Woah. Pretty bold to open your sequel with a line that could so easily be interpreted as prophetic there, Mr Cooper. While Hangover 2: The Drunkening isn't quite as bad as you can imagine, it is precisely what you expect: same shit, different continent.

The Hangover
Rather like how the consequences of violence are rarely shown on film, nor are the consequences of heavy boozing - sure, there are countless famous movie drunks, but when was the last time you saw a 'morning after' movie? Perhaps it's because having a protagonist spend 90 minutes on the toilet isn't much fun; perhaps it's becaus...
