The boys are back in town in Todd Phillips’ “The Hangover Part III”, the final installment in his Wolfpack trilogy. I guess it makes sense that the series would come full circle, with the action once again returning to the place that started it all — Vegas. Burn, Vegas, burn? Find out when “The Hangover Part III” arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital Download this October 8th.
It’s been two years. Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are happily living uneventful lives at home. Tattoos have been lasered off, files purged. The last they heard from disaster-magnet Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong), he’d been tossed into a Thai prison and, with him out of the way, the guys have very nearly recovered from their nights prowling the seamy side of Las Vegas in a roofie’d haze, and being kidnapped, shot at, and chased by drug-dealing mobsters in Bangkok. The only member of the Wolfpack who’s not content is Alan (Zach Galifianakis). Still lacking a sense of purpose, the group’s black sheep has ditched his meds and given in to his natural impulses in a big way – which, for Alan, means no boundaries, no filters and no judgment – until a personal crisis forces him to finally seek the help he needs. And who better than his three best friends to make sure he takes the first step. This time, there’s no bachelor party. No wedding. What could possibly go wrong? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off. “The Hangover Part III” is the epic conclusion to an incomparable odyssey of mayhem and bad decisions, in which the guys must finish what they started by going back to where it all began: Las Vegas.
The film will also be available in HD or standard definition from online retailers including iTunes, Xbox, PlayStation, Amazon, Vudu, and CinemaNow.
Here’s an excerpt from our review of the movie:
Going in, expectations weren’t super elevated. Part two took care of that. Still, this is really the only big R rated comedy that we’re getting this season, and I at least hoped for a couple of sound laughs, some crude humor, a few tasteless jokes, and good old fashioned foul mouthed debauchery. In reality, “The Hangover Part III” is pretty tame, and so bad that it actually makes you question whether or not the first movie was any good, or if you just bought into a collective delusion.
