1925 - The Hangover Part III
This film got shit on a whole lot when it came out. I didn't mind it at all. I didn't laugh a whole lot, but I was also curious what would happen with these characters and I liked the premise quite a bit and appreciated that they didn't go back to the well with trying to have the characters be drugged again. It feels like a nice period to the story as well as it brings the story nicely full circle with events from the first film and a lot of really strong callbacks. I have to admit, I was always disappointed that Stu never hooked up with Heather Graham following the first film. Big shame.
It's around VOD now if you missed it in the theatres as I did. I don't think it beats the original by any means, but it's worth checking out if you made the effort to see the second one, for sure.
