The wolfpack is back and so is Vegas. But comedy sequels are hard to pull off. The jokes can feel too similar. (See carbon–copy Part Two that left audiences with a case of déjà vu.)
For Part Three, writer/director Todd Phillips vowed to stir things up so the plot doesn’t center on yet another hangover. (Yay!)
After Alan (Zach Galafianakis) mistakenly—and not really all that funnily—decapitates a giraffe under a low underpass, the gang stages an intervention to help him (finally) grow up. Then John Goodman shows up, kidnapping Doug (the one who never goes along) and threatens to off him unless they find… Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong). Turns out, the criminally insane Chow stole $21 million in gold bars, which funded his stint in Bangkok (the setting for Part Two).

With only 72 hours, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan are off to find Chow, the great and powerful, which is certainly a mouthful, but is it funny? Or even meant to be? There’s more going on here than just R-rated pranks.
If nothing else, Part Three is one heck of detour for the series…
