I was pretty disappointed by this movie. Some people found it funny.

The only bit I enjoyed came after the end of the movie.

I watched Hangover 3 and it was pretty poor.There were a few laughs but it wasn't as good as the previous two films.It Didnt help my changing the formula of the film and the end credit scene just remind me of this but I think the end credit scene was done to show that you can't carry on with them getting into more absurd situations!

I've just got back from seeing this. It wasn't as good as previous efforts but I still enjoyed it.

I don't know whether I now pay more attention to Bradley after seeing him in other films, but is it just me, or did he seem to act a lot more in this one and give a bigger performance? He seemed different to Phil in the other films. It's difficult to describe, but I just found him very watchable as Phil.

Also, how many times did they try and get him to take his top off

This film is the Alan and Chow show. I think they HAD to change the formula or it'd bombed. Its OK. The plotline is v cheesy & sometimes it seems like weak comedy sketches thrown together. Script could've been sharper,but I've seen a lot worse
Don't go with too high expectations and you'll probably like it.

Well I saw this yesteday and its one of the worst 9.50 I have ever spent. Absolute awful film. I didn't even laugh. How can they call that a comedy? Part 2 was better than this rubbish. Overall 2 & 3 should never have happened.

Even though I liked it, I agree that I didn't laugh much. I remember laughing so many times when watching the first and second.

It's already made 3/4 of the money it cost to make so I don't think it's a flop, but will it make half a billion? When I saw it, the cinema was quite full and that was early on a Saturday night.

It was as good as the second movie just one thing the giraffe special effects don't really have any place in a comedy movie like this. You can see it in the trailer for the movie but what where they thinking?

Right now everything in hollywood's going for CGI effects.

Poorest of the three....Maybe because they didn't have a Hangover until the end credits.....

5/10

Saw it yesterday and enjoyed it, although it wasn't a patch on the first film, it was more of a thriller than a comedy this time, but i'm glad they broke from formula for this one rather than just repeating the same scenarios from the first film, so while it was lighter on laughs, i thought it made up for it with a stronger story (compared to Part 2), although whether you enjoy the film will ultimately come down to how invested you are in the characters. The mid-credits scene was hilarious though, but i hope they leave the series alone now, it's gone as far as it can in my opinion, and with Part 3 doing far worse at the US box office than the first two films ($62 million through 5 days compared to $135 million for the second film through the same period), hopefully the producers won't feel the need to stretch the idea any further.

On the way out of the cinema i heard two girls talking about how they hope they make another one and that it focuses on Chow's wedding...thank god they're not Hollywood screenwriters!

I thought Bradley's hotel stunt was great

They should have just left 'The Hangover' as a one-off film - it would have gone down in comedy history that way. Unfortunately, thats not the way Hollywood works and while part 2 had some funny bits (I haven't seen part 3), it wasn't a patch on the fresh and original first film.

Was a bad film, there were no jokes at all! The script writers seriously needed to go to funnyshortjokes.com or sickipedia.org , there was very little to laugh at.

Definitely not as good as the other two but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I'm glad they never.

The first was a bland average comedy. Never stood out more than American Pie.

The second in the season was good..hence the third and final part.

I saw this today. I really enjoyed the first one, It's a film that I can happily watch time and time again and still find it funny. I saw the second one and enjoyed it too, though it wasn't as good as the first.

I wouldn't say that it was terrible, but it wasn't great either. I really hope that they end it now. It needs to be ended.

I agree.

I saw it yesterday thought it was good. It wasn't as good as the first two but it was still funny and watchable. I don't think it's that bad .

I thought this was the weakest entry of the three films. I barely laughed and can only recollect one moment of vague hialrity; that being the Las Vegas scene with Phil and Alan. Also, i think they messed up centralisng Chow. He worked better as a peripheral figure, that got in the way of the others.

It was mildly amusing in parts, but I never laughed out loud at any point.

Chow worked better as a supporting character. Funnier in small doses.

The Hangover Part III

A lot of people criticised the second movie for being an almost direct copy of the first (without being as funny), but that's actually what I quite liked about it. OK, it's ridiculous that the same thing would happen again, but no more ridiculous than the things that actually happened. As such, for this apparent trilogy closer, I was a bit upset to hear that they weren't having the "do-over" of the previous two films, and were taking it in a different angle.

Turns out, I think they probably did the right thing. The story isn't actually that bad, and has a nice couple of twists along the way, and while maybe not as funny as the previous two, you care enough about the characters by now to make that not matter so much. The story is a bit better by necessity, so it doesn't matter that the gag quote isn't so high.

It may think it's a bit funnier than it actually is (having Chow on a parachute shouting "I love cocaine" seems to be this films idea of a clever joke), but it does have enough good set pieces and decent story manouevers to keep it surprising and worth investing in. Most characters get their moment in the spotlight (excepting Doug, once again sidelined away from the action!), and the tag scene is a great ending to the series, a complete bit of nonsesne, but a fantastic call back to the lunacy of the first two films.

I've enjoyed all three films in the series - the first the most because it really felt like something new when it was released four years ago, but there's been enough good stuff in the two sequels to make the trilogy worthwhile.

It does appear that franchises lately tend to peak with the third film before dropping off a cliff, both the Saw and Paranormal Activity films saw fairly steep declines in Box Office takings after the series high takings for their third installments, but obviously they were comparatively cheap to make and so even with the declines it was still worth producing more. And i agree with you about the remakes point, it does seem as thought audiences are more willing to accept a complete series reboot rather than endless sequels these days.
Fast and Furious is a good example of a series with a growing audience.
