The Hangover 3 reviews are in and they aren’t good.
The third installment in the Hangover franchise hits theaters this weekend but critics say that the movie isn’t worth seeing. It only has a 25% rating on Rotten Tomatoes at the moment with most critics saying that the funny has finally dried up.
Peter Travers of Rolling Stone writes: “The first movie left you with an exhilarating rush. All that Part III leaves is, well, a hangover.”
The Hangover 3 ditches the formula of the first two movies (they get really drunk and forget what happened the night before) and instead takes the Wolfpack on a road trip in order to save their kidnapped fiend.
The synopsis on IMDB writes: “This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the change of pace is doing any good for the franchise. Here are some of the worst Hangover 3 reviews.
The Chicago Suntimes writes: “I had to wait until halfway through the closing credits for my first, and only, laugh.”
Groucho reviews writes: “Less like a movie and more like a contractual obligation.”
Movies.com writes: “You chase Ken Jeong around and you crash into stuff with your cars and Zach Galifianakis falls off things. All jokes recycled, lifelessly. Radical.”
The Hangover is one of the highest grossing R-rated movies of all-time. The original movie took in $277 million worldwide. The original movie was the only film in the series to get decent reviews but the sequel still managed to gross more than $250 million.
Do you think The Hangover 3 will top the box office despite it’s poor reviews?
