The Hangover Part III brings a little mystery back to the franchise by reinventing the formula. Theres no wedding nor missing groomsman this time. No actual hangover from which to recover. Instead, the film is more a caper than a comedy.
French director Francois (“Potiche”) Ozon’s latest is an adaptation of a play, a satire of talent presented to those who don’t have it but recognize it, a spoof of mores and the writer’s craft, and a “bildungsroman” (coming-of-age tale) with hints of a creepy stalker-thriller about it.
