This movie was waaaaaay better than the second one. Plot was a total surprise, But of course doesn't hold a candle to the first!!! Still a must see.

As always, the Hangover movies are hilarious! Normally I would have rented this film on dvd, but I was in the mood to see a comedy so we spent the extra money to see it at the theater.

Ok, I'll admit it. I ignored last week's critical response and went ahead and bought 7 tickets to this. While this fare has been typically geared toward a male-skewing audience, the previous two films were actually ones we could bring our significant others to as well. The unfortunate part is, no matter who you bring along, this film will disappoint you. Let's get into the rationale as to why you should pass:
• There isn't a "hangover" to speak of in the film. The formula for the first two films has been tossed completely out the window, and it's now a watered-down version of a mistaken identity plotline.
• The script reserves the best material for Ken Jeong. Don't get me wrong, I like him. Very, very much. But Cooper, Helms, and Galifinakis are utterly wasted through a severe majority of the film.
• This has been dubbed "the end" of the franchise (which we can never trust), and yet, the film had no sense of nostalgia or remembrance regarding any of the characters.

I thought it was overall entertaining, somewhat predicatable. Liked it a lot better than Hangover 2. I think the director did a good job of tying he story back to Hangover 1 and 2. However, Ken Jeong stole the show and I thought John Goodman held his own as well. Of course Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Gus Galifanikas we great.

I felt it was basically disappointing. Not that it had no entertainment value, and if you're a fan of the Hangover movies and characters, it's definitely worth seeing. Just don't get your hopes up too high, it's no where near as good as the first two. I don't know why they felt the need to depart from the plot of the first two, they could have added some twists and pulled off a third hungover, loss of memory adventure. Yea it's been done, and we know what's coming, but it can still be hilarious. This movie just fell way short of what they could have done. The scene that appears after the credits start rolling is probably the funniest part of the movie.
