Rushed and Severely Lacking,
This review is from: The Hangover Part III (Blu-ray+DVD) (Blu-ray)
After Todd Philipps witnessed success with the first film he and the studios quickly realized they had a money maker on their hands. Ever since then these movies have been pushed out as fast as possible producing 3 films in only 4 years.
This is an unfortunate ingredient for failure. When a movie is not given a proper amount of time to be developed in the writing and plotting stage it can easily suffer from any number of things. First off the film is supposed to be a comedy and while the first brought the laughs by the barrel this one could hardly muster an occasional chuckle.
Chow was an initial fan favorite but I feel at this point they've abused his power of being a good side character by bringing him too far into the spot light. I think to an extent the same thing happened with Galifianakis, he became such a cult figure after the first movie, it's almost like they gave him the headline in this movie, which goes against what made the first film great.
