Last summer, as Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises concluded, emotions were high with the realization that there won't be anymore Nolan-helmed Batman movies. When The Hangover Part III wraps up this summer, deuces shall be thrown up and sighs of relief will happen in rapid succession. Why? Because anyone with even a shred of common sense still can't get over the laziness and sheer unfunniness of 2011's The Hangover Part II.

To say that director Todd Phillips has a lot of making up to do would be an understatement. To his and the second sequel's credit, the plot here switches away from the first two movies' next-morning mystery approaches and focuses more on the Wolf Pack getting hired by a nefarious type (John Goodman) to locate Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong), who's on the run. Which, it should be noted, raises concern: Jeong Hangover performances qualify as two of the most obnoxious acting turns of all time.
