In the opening scene, we see Mr. Chow (played by Ken Jeong) escaping from a maximum security prison in Bangkok. He made his way through the sewers and then water came rushing through. It pushed Chow through a cliff into a river below. Then, the title card is shown in a dramatic fashion: “The Hangover Part III.”

Next, we see Alan (Zach Galifianakis) driving a convertible on the 73 Toll Road in Orange County, Calif. He had a huge smile on his face because he just bought a giraffe, which was being towed in a trailer. The giraffe made clearance over several bridges on the freeway—until a low bridge approached. The giraffe didn’t have enough time to lower his head so his head got knocked off and landed on the windshield of a car behind. That led to a chain reaction accident with several cars getting smashed and a semi truck losing its load.

Later, we are introduced to Alan’s father, Sid, played by Jeffrey Tambor. Sid told Alan that the accident would cost his family a lot of money, even though they were well off. A few seconds later, Sid had a heart attack and dies.

The next morning, Stu (Ed Helms), Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Doug (Justin Bartha) had a meeting with Alan. They encouraged him to start an intervention program to turn his bad behavior around. Alan asked if they would be driving him there and they all said yes.

The Wolfpack as the four characters are known—got into their Chrysler minivan and drove to the hospital. A few seconds later, a small semi truck side swiped them. The doors opened up and all four members of the Wolfpack were assaulted and tied up. Meanwhile, Doug got kidnapped and that was the last we saw of him for a while.

Who was behind the kidnapping? None other than Marshall (John Goodman). Everyone reappeared in a desert with lots of windmills. It reminded me of the San Gorgonio Pass wind farm just west of Palm Springs. Marshall wanted to know the location of Mr. Chow because he stole more than $20 million of his gold.

The rest of the movie became a wild goose chase for Mr. Chow. The Wolfpack found him in Tijuana, then lost him and then found him again in Las Vegas where the first "Hangover" movie began. Just when we think he is dead, Chow appears again. He jumped off of a balcony at the Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino and landed perfectly on Stu’s limousine with the help of a parachute.

Will Alan ever make it to his intervention program? What is his future romantically? Those are the questions you’ll be able to answer at the end of this movie and the end of the Hangover franchise. I'm not going to tell you those answers. You have to go see the movie for yourself to find out.

There’s a special surprise for those of you who stay for the credits. Don’t leave as soon as they start rolling. What’s it all about? I’ll keep you in suspense…

Todd Phillips returned as director for “The Hangover Part III.” He also directed the first two parts of the trilogy. Scenes for the movie were shot in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and in Nogales, Ariz. (which doubled as Tijuana). It is rated R for pervasive language including sexual references, some violence and drug content, and brief graphic nudity.

I really enjoyed “The Hangover Part III.” The movie went by really fast even though it was one hour and 40 minutes in length. I really enjoyed the cast of Bartha, Cooper, Galifianakis, Helms and Jeong. Heather Graham, Melissa McCarthy and Jeffrey Tambor also have small roles in the film. I would recommend it for fans of "Hangover" Parts and II, but also to those who haven’t seen the first two installments. It definitely has a surprise ending that I didn’t see coming.

OVERALL RATING: A
