Hangover Part III - The Wolf Pack Are Packing It In After Three Glorious Adventures

It started as a joke; a low-budget, quirky movie about three guys who have the night of their lives, and then have the time of their lives sorting out the mess they’ve made. Now, it’s a multi-million dollar franchise, and this weekend, it enters its third and final movie, The Hangover Part III.

“We just stumbled on that one thing and thought it would be an interesting thing to explore as far as what that meant and what it's about. So we didn't do it like that, but I do know the movies pretty well,” says Director Todd Phillips on how the Hangover idea was born.

“To me, the key to this movie was that we wanted to tell Alan's story... it really felt like Alan's story was the loose end that needed to be tied up,” he added in his interview with Comingsoon.com. While the first Hangover film acquired somewhat of a cult status, with people flocking to the cinema off the back of positive reviews, the second film suffered a bit of a hangover (sorry). It only managed 34% on Rotten Tomatoes, suffering from the oh-so-common second film syndrome.
