The Hangover! Something which I have never personally experienced, due to my temperance nature. But it’s something that the rest of the world is all too familiar with, and a part of life that made the first two Hangover films so wildly successful.
With a third movie just two months away, a trailer to tease the end of all things has finally arrived. Beware, if you love giraffes, you might want to look away now.
At a first glance, The Hangover 3 looks nothing like the first two films. The Wolf Pack is blindly inebriated for once, and in some way, the ramifications of those first two films have come back to bite them in the ass. Plus, there’s a couple of returning characters in addition to series regulars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha.
Ken Jeong is back once again as Mr Chow, although it seems that he’s all business this time around, Heather Graham returns and even though he’s not seen, I’ve got a strong feeling that Mike Tyson is lurking around somewhere. Whatever they’re up to in Las Vegas, it looks a tad bit more serious, although that final bit with the giraffe had me chuckling.
Let’s hope that the rest of the film can keep up that level of wrong but funny comedy. Todd Phillips directs, for a May 24 release date.
