In the scene at the end of the film where the wolf pack get out of the limo and cross the street to return to Phil's minivan, the shot of them crossing the street clearly parodies the cover of the album by The Beatles, Abbey Road. See more »
During the exchange toward the end, Phil asks Alan to get the last bag of gold out of the limo. As Alan walks toward the limo, the brake lights are on despite the fact that everyone is outside the limo. See more »
Did The Hangover Part 2 need to be made? No is the answer to that question, definitely not. Did The Hangover Part 3 need to be made? Well they went ahead and made the second one so I guess they had to make this one really. And while it wasn't The Hangover film I was hoping for, it's still a fitting finale to the trilogy.
So is the film funny I hear you cry...well kind of. Some of the jokes fall disastrously flat but the ones that work really do work. And as you'd expect, most of the humor is contributed by Zach Galifianakis as the ever eccentric Alan and Ken Jeong as the man of sheer chaos, Leslie Chow. Forget Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms' characters, Alan and Mr Chow are the stars of this show. Which was to be expected as the whole film is built around their exploits and curiously strange friendship.
So is this better than the second installment? Yes it is. Is it better than the original? Nowhere near. But you'll still have a great time if you're a fan of the franchise in general. The film's main set piece at Caesars Palace is worth the ticket price alone.
