I’m not sure if this Hangover movie is the conclusion to the franchise, as the after credits scene would lead one to believe their shenanigans never end, but if it was the end of the franchise they did a great job at bringing it to and end. The third Hangover movie is better than the second movie, but not as great as the first. Although I think the third in the franchise may has been a little more serious than its predecessors. This doesn’t make it a bad movie, as it still keeps in its humorous ways but it just seems that as time goes on in the franchise so much crazy happens to them that they seem to act as if it is natural to them. Something I like is that as much as the trailer for the movie seemed to spoil a lot of the movie, everything that happened in the trailer happened at the beginning of the movie. I always hate when trailers spoils the movie, so this is always good. The giraffe scene was a lot more hilarious in the actual movie and another interesting funny thing is the fact is that they parody the television show Intervention’s viral scene of the guy’s cry in the “deep down inside I still love you” video. One thing I was kind of hoping for was the return of Stu’s brother-in-law Teddy, seeming how he was supposed to be part of the Wolf Pack by the end of the second movie. Other then that I think they did a very good job at possibly bringing the franchise to a close.
