This was both the most expensive and least successful film in the series. You can read my review of the theatrical release here.
The official word: All bets are off when “The Hangover Part III” arrives onto Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital Download on October 8 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. “The Hangover Part III” follows the infamous Wolfpack as the gang sets out on a fearless mission to save their kidnapped friend in Sin City.
From director Todd Phillips (“The Hangover,” “The Hangover Part II,” and “Old School”) and a screenplay by co-writer Craig Mazin, “The Hangover Part III” stars Bradley Cooper as Phil; Ed Helms as Stu; Zach Galifianakis as Alan; Justin Bartha as Doug; Ken Jeong as Leslie Chow; John Goodman as Marshall; Heather Graham as Jade; and Jeffrey Tambor as Alan’s father, Sid.
“The Hangover Part III” will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99 and on 2-disc DVD Special Edition for $28.98. The Blu-ray Combo Pack features the theatrical version of the film in hi-definition on Blu-ray, and the 2-disc DVD Special Edition features the theatrical version in standard definition. Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and the 2-disc DVD Special Edition include UltraViolet which allows consumers to download and instantly stream the standard definition theatrical version of the film to a wide range of devices including computers and compatible tablets, smartphones, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players.*
It’s been two years. Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are happily living uneventful lives at home. Tattoos have been lasered off, files purged. The last they heard from disaster-magnet Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong), he’d been tossed into a Thai prison and, with him out of the way, the guys have very nearly recovered from their nights prowling the seamy side of Las Vegas in a roofie’d haze, and being kidnapped, shot at, and chased by drug-dealing mobsters in Bangkok.
The only member of the Wolfpack who’s not content is Alan (Zach Galifianakis). Still lacking a sense of purpose, the group’s black sheep has ditched his meds and given in to his natural impulses in a big way – which, for Alan, means no boundaries, no filters and no judgment – until a personal crisis forces him to finally seek the help he needs.
And who better than his three best friends to make sure he takes the first step. This time, there’s no bachelor party. No wedding. What could possibly go wrong? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.
“The Hangover Part III” is the epic conclusion to an incomparable odyssey of mayhem and bad decisions, in which the guys must finish what they started by going back to where it all began: Las Vegas.
