'The Hangover Part III'
(Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, Justin Bartha, et al / R / 100 mins)
Overview: The Wolfpack set out in search of Mr. Chow after Doug is kidnapped by a criminal seeking to recover $21 million from the diminutive hustler as the decadent Hangover trilogy winds to an outrageous close.
Verdict: This one didn't live up to the the first two. Yes, it had its moments, and there were some funny parts. Not as much as the first two. There were scenes that seemed to give a message of animal cruelty...wasn't down with that at all. Was also disappointed to find out that possibly the funniest scene in the movie was played during the credits, so stick around for about a minute to see that.
Indeed, Part 3 is pretty much the Galifianakis and Jeong show. They are by far the best thing about this movie. Cooper and Helms are nothing more than accessories. You'll have a few chuckles and tense moments, but this comedy series has run its course.
I'll give this one a "better rented" status. If it's on cable, go ahead and watch it.
