5 Things to Know About 'The Hangover III' (Spoiler Alert!)
The Hangover Part III, which we have been told is the final installment in the Hangover film franchise (we can only hope that this is not the case) hit theaters on May 23. The film, which stars Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms, is getting better reviews from fans than critics. Here are five things to know about The Hangover Part III.
1. There Is No Wedding, but Still a Missing Person Search...Sort of
Hangover Part III doesn't involve a wedding, a bachelor party or a hangover. There's no search for the groom (Doug) to get him to the altar in time for his wedding like in the first 'Hangover' nor a search for the bride's brother (Teddy) from the second. No, the majority of the film is a road trip in search of Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong), the notorious Asian gangster from the previous Hangovers.
2. No Tyson
Despite the love for Mike Tyson and his appearances in the first two Hangover films, Mike will not be returning and making a guest appearance. Originally, Mike expected to be a part of the film, but later he told TMZ, "I have no idea what's going on. I'm not in this one."
3. The Film's Release Date Was Moved
It was rumored that the release date for the film was moved up a day to avoid competition with Fast and Furious 6. If that's true, smart move.
4. Sean Penn and Robert Downey Jr. could have been in the Hangover Part III?
According to IMDB, Sean Penn and Robert Downey Jr. were considered for the role that ultimately went to John Goodman.
5. Jade, Tyler, and Black Doug are back!
The Hangover Part III marks the return of characters Jade, Tyler, and Black Doug from the first film.
