The Hangover Part III

hangover_part_iii_ver7

In 2009, Todd Phillips and co. had a surprise smash hit with “The Hangover”, a movie about three men who awaken from a night of blackout drinking to find they’ve lost one of their friends. They then have to recreate the events of the night before in order to retrace their steps and find their friend. In 2011, Todd Phillips and co. had another smash hit with “The Hangover Part II”, a movie about three men who awaken from a night of blackout drinking to find they’ve lost one of their friends. They then have to recreate the events of the night before in order to retrace their steps and find their friend.

“Part II” was widely criticized for being a regurgitation of the first film. It was nearly a note for note facsimile, and critics punished it accordingly. In response, Phillips and co. pledged “The Hangover Part III” would not be “the same old thing”. Instead, they made a movie that has little to do with anything fans love about the first two films.

No drunken debauchery, no blackout, no “Hangover”.

Worst of all, few to no laughs.

The Words

“The Words” tells the story of a successful old writer telling the story of a struggling young writer who steals an old story from an old writer who eventually catches on and confronts him by telling his story.

As you can tell, there’s a lot of storytelling going on.

It’s not hard to keep track of, but it does create too many unnecessary layers to work through surrounding the primary story. It waters down the emotional weight, and creates unfortunate periods of time that the audience has to sit through, hoping to get back to what the movie should really be all about.
