The Hangover Part III (2013)

After taking the SAT on June 1, 2013, all I wanted to do was go home, wrap myself in my blankets, and possibly cry a little bit. Instead, I was persuaded to go see the end of the Hangover trilogy. I liked the first one, even though I didn’t remember much of it, but the second one wasn’t nearly as good. I only laughed four times total during Part II, and you know a comedy is bad if you can count how many times you laughed during it. While I didn’t expect much from The Hangover Part III, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it.

The chemistry between the cast was phenomenal. Something I definitely expected was that the comedy would flow well between the Wolf Pack, as it has in past installments. I didn’t expect the film to be this funny though. I laughed throughout the entire film. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis are great together, and I loved Ed Helms especially. He probably has the best gagging noise I’ve ever heard. John Goodman was a nice addition to the franchise, acting as a formidable opponent.

On Rotten Tomatoes, a site the collects professional reviews, the overall consensus of the film called it, “Less a comedy than an angrily dark action thriller…” The film received a 19%, but I truly enjoyed the twisted, thrilling feel to the movie. The outrageous comedy was still present, but the different tone of the film was actually interesting. It gave a real story to the film, and especially after rehashing the first film into the second one, Part III was a nice change of pace.

After about five months of watching the film, I still remember how great it was. The film’s jokes still bring a smile on my face if I ever happen to think about the movie, and I can’t wait to view it again.

For those out there that are having doubts on this film, Schimmel, please give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

I give The Hangover Part III a 10/10.

  1. Schimmel isn’t the only one skeptical about this flick as Part II totally turned me off and even made me dislike the first one a bit. However, given the fact your tastes were pleased, you’ve lent some ethos to such a project, Ramy; thus, at some point today, Netflix will be finding this film for me.
