‘The Hangover Part III’: New Trailer Reveals a Chow-centric Plot and John Goodman as the Villain
'Hangover III' (Warner Bros.)
Now, we have the second trailer for the final "Hangover" (final, yes, as the advertising campaign has been proclaiming "It Ends," a la "Harry Potter"). And yes, it presents a film that looks rather mean-spirited but it also looks like it actually has a plot ... and, even better, it has John Goodman.
Check out the trailer below:
The trailer quickly sets up the premise: Alan's dad has just died and he's off his meds, which causes him to dig his father's grave in the cemetery himself (sans shirt, of course). His friends intervene and encourage him to take time out at a medical facility called New Horizons, and while en route, the Wolf Pack is run off the road by Goodman, who demands they track down Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong), who somehow managed to steal $21 million from him.

From there, the gang is off to Tijuana (you can get a hell of a hangover on tequila, you know), where they find Chow indulging in cockfighting and other acts of hedonism. This new adventure will apparently make for better psychotherapy for Alan than what any hospital could provide, as he suddenly comes to existential realizations such as "We can't be friends any more ... when we get together bad things happen and people get hurt." Chow, ever the walking, babbling lack of the series' moral center, responds with, "Yeah, that's the point -- it's funny!"
