The Hangover Part III Gives Us Plot Details: "HOORAY" Yelled No One

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | December 17, 2012 | Comments ()


The Hangover was a hilarious movie, in my humble opinion. My husband and I laughed so much that we needed a second viewing to hear lines that we missed. Then came The Hangover Part II which was the same movie as the first, but with more Ken Jeong penis, a monkey instead of a baby, and a face tattoo instead of a missing tooth. Oh, and with 99% less funny.
Now we have The Hangover Part III and the promise of a plot different from the first two. WHAT A NOVEL IDEA, TODD PHILLIPS.

Thankfully, this is the last one. The last time Bradley "EILF" Cooper, Justin Bartha, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis pull their Wolfpack together and get into some shit together. The plot this time? Galifianakis' Alan is reeling from the death of his father and, one would guess, Cooper's Phil probably suggests a trip. Just a guess. Complications from a previous blackout night come back to kick the Wolfpack in the ass as well.

John Goodman, Heather Graham, Ken, Jeon, Jeffrey Tambor, Mike Epps and Melissa McCarthy will also be in the unneeded third movie, set to release May 24, 2013. Check the link above for a look at Jeong's character that I'm not comfortable posting here at this moment. You can have a look at this Abbey Road-looking bullshit from the movie. You're welcome!

Good evening, Beijing. I thought it time we had a little talk: Chinese State Television Airs V for Vendetta | Network Television Really Wants You To Watch Cable: Television News

Are you following Pajiba on Facebook or Twitter? Every time you do, Bill Murray crashes a wedding.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    It's like they're pushing it to see how far this lazy as shit plot can get before people stop turning in. Hangover 4: Zach Galifinakis's wedding in Monaco and now all the boys have a wild night out and try to piece back what happened.

  • Buck Forty

    A dead father? OMG this must mean...

    The Hangover Part III : this time it's ... PERSONAL!!

  • lowercase_ryan

    So I'm reading James Patterson's Along Came a Spider, and despite the fact that I now know the villain is white, from his first scene I've pictured him as Ken Jeong. It's making for a really weird read.

  • Green Lantern

    Loved the first one. Liked the second one.


  • Puddin

    This Hangover franchise is making it verrry hard for Zack G. to pull of that smug outside who's above Hollywood and all of its trappings routine.

    Also,,,EILF. **high five** That's awesome.

  • p

    Oh come on, can't you see how 'ironic' he is being by doing these movies? (Insert semi infinite rolleyes here)

  • Kala

    EILF made me snort so loud that my coworker glared at me.

  • Brown

    My only problem with the first one was the hype built it up so much that it came across as being unworthy of it. Compare it to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs which I had no real expectations of and I laughed my butt at.

  • Pinky McLadybits


  • Between this shit and The Office, Ed Helms is very quickly burning through the goodwill he built up at The Daily Show.

  • John G.

    interesting fact!
    Ed Helms does not write The Office or any of the Hangover films. Ed Helms was a nobody on the daily show who got both his original Office role and Hangover role at the same time. All he's done is be loyal to the people who gave him a shot and made his career.

  • I'm fully aware that he never wrote either The Office or any of the Hangover movies. However, he does agree to keep appearing in these terrible, terrible projects.

  • aroorda

    I liked Hangover and Cedar Rapids. Plus, you can't really bit the hand that feeds and refuse to be in the sequel to the highest grossing R comedy of all time. He made Hangover 2. One bad movie. Get over it. Even Brad Pitt is in those horrible perfume ads.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I hated Ed Helms on The Daily Show.

  • duckandcover

    I can't wait to see how they explain Heather Graham in the movie after the obvious omission of her character in the second one. Granted, someone will have to spoil it for me, because like hell am I going to see this stupid thing for $10-$12.

  • sgmagnus

    Unless it starts with all of them in rehab, it's a waste.

  • zeke_the_pig

    First one = a very specific brand of genius execution. The second one? Well, once upon a severely inebriated night I managed to climb up a lamppost, balance myself with my knees, and then somehow take a whizz into a wine glass before lobbing it into Jude Law's garden. Yeah, sure, I found my dickishness hilarious at the time, but I didn't then return the next night, go down the next street and do it to Bob Hoskins's house. Because I have some fucking imagination.

  • Simon

    What are you talking about! I really liked the first one (I also liked the second one, but if you liked the first one you liked the second one) and I'm not gonna walk around like som hipster Jesus saying that this movie is the death of comedy because it isn't, the cast is really funny and I hope they pull it off. And come one Clager, you love the Hangover movies, no one is that much of a hipster.

  • TK

    Don't be disgusting.

  • Pinky McLadybits

    Too late.

  • Robert

    Admit it. You commented without reading a word of the post. The first two sentences are a glowing tribute to The Hangover. Pull your head out of your ass and actually read for once.

  • duckandcover

    No. Just because the first two movies share the same formula doesn't mean you'll enjoy them the same. Even the Terminator series changed it up between the first one and Judgment Day. The first Hangover was completely novel and original as a restart to the buddy formula in movies. The one-liners and cameos were quirky and fresh. The second looked and smelled just like I'd imagine the guys would after their blackout bender: awful and stale.

  • mel0123

    how do you smell a movie

  • duckandcover

    The Smelloscope. Your people don't have those?


  • Jezzer

    She just said that she loved the first movie there, Reading Comprehension Guy. And it's not being a "hipster" when you point out that making a sequel that recycles all the jokes from the first movie is lazy film-making.

  • John G.

    being Hipster these days just means someone didn't like something that you liked.

  • TK

    The word is basically meaningless nowadays. It should really just be dropped from the vernacular altogether, because it gets used so lazily and pointlessly.

  • John G.

    lazy and pointless word use is so hipster

  • TK

    That comment was totally hipster.

  • Pointing out that it was hipster? Totally a hipster move.

  • TK

    Pointing out that pointing out was...

    Oh, fuck it.

    Fucking hipsters.

  • BlackRabbit

    So...would talking up something you like to ask why others don't like it be...hypster?

  • TK

    Well played, sir.
