Remember that movie The Hangover? It was all kinds of funny, about a bachelor party gone horribly wrong? There was Mike Tyson and a tiger and Zach Galifianakis and everyone laughed and there was joy and dancing in the streets? Remember that?
Then The Hangover Part II happened and everyone felt a little sad, because it was pretty much the same stuff, only again. And not so funny. Now The Hangover Part III is coming at us and many of us are struggling to care again.
I want to be excited about The Hangover Part III, I really do. But the latest clip for the newest outing of the Wolfpack is just not inspiring me with a great sense of hope. Here’s more of the same: Doug (Justin Bartha) is missing, the remaining boys have to figure out how to get him back. There’s no wedding and no bachelor party, so really it’s just our three boys (Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms) having to deal with more crazy shenanigans. They look kind of tired too. I know the feeling, guys.
The supporting cast does give me cause, what with the addition of John Goodman and the return of Heather Graham and Ken Jeong. But really, I do not see what else can possibly happen to these guys that has not already happened once – if not twice – before. I know that Todd Phillips has reliably informed us that we did not understand the inherent amazingness of The Hangover Part II, so maybe we’re just all underestimating the possible amazingness of The Hangover Part III. But he’s going to have to do a lot better than this first clip to get me into the theatre.
The Hangover Part III hits theatres May 24. Check out the first clip below and let me know if you think I’m being horribly unfair. Will you pay money to see this movie?
