Doug Billings (Justin Bartha) is getting married to Tracy Garner (Sasha Barrese). Doug is having a bachelor party in Las Vegas with his friends Phil Wenneck (Bradley Cooper), Stuart “Stu” Price (Ed Helms), and Tracy’s brother Alan Garner (Zach Galifianakis). Doug, Phil, Alan and Stu head to Las Vegas that same night where they book a suite at the Caesars Palace hotel. Just before the bachelor party begins, they head to the hotel rooftop where they have drinks prepared by Alan.

While driving in the Mercedes, they hear banging coming from the trunk and think it’s Doug, so the three run to open the trunk, but instead of finding Doug, they find a half-naked Asian man who attacks them with a metal crowbar in revenge for their confinement and flees (in the uncensored version of the film, he was completely naked). Alan confesses that he slipped drugs into the shots they took on the rooftop the night before to make sure they had a good time, thinking the drug was ecstasy and that’s why they don’t remember anything.

Of course, we have to include this pink-heavy comedy that introduced us to one of our favorite unpronounceably named blondes in cinema, Reese Witherspoon. The story of this comedy is very interesting: Reese plays a sorority member (she doesn’t seem to do anything else) who is the girlfriend of a guy who belongs to a big-name political family.She thinks that before he leaves for college he’s going to propose but the guy tells her, literally, that a man like him needs a Kennedy and not a Marylin. Reese, of course, gets really pissed off and decides to study law at the same university as him, Harvard. To that end, our friend makes a video presentation that can be summed up as her in the pool wearing a streamer bikini and the Harvard academics, in the interest of “diversity,” decide to take her (take that). Guess who unwittingly becomes Harvard’s top lawyer? That’s right.

I am aware that there is no shortage of moviegoers who reacted to ‘Hangover in Vegas’ with some incredulity, not quite seeing what made millions of viewers across the planet celebrate it as little less than the definitive comedy. I never shared that enthusiasm, but when I saw the first installment I did have a very good time at the cinema, something that did not happen with ‘Hangover 2, Now in Thailand! (‘The Hangover Part II’, Todd Phillips, 2011), where the tendency to repeat and exaggerate the merits of its predecessor turned against it. You already know that I didn’t end up too satisfied with ‘R3sacón’ either, so I decided to review ‘Hangover in Las Vegas’ to say goodbye to the saga with the best possible taste in my mouth, but the truth is that I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first time.

It is clear that the consequences of the night of debauchery of the pack vertebrate the comic content of ‘Hangover in Las Vegas’, but one of the great virtues of the film is that it is not dedicated to pile up gags hoping that some work, but develops the story in a calm way, something that, unfortunately, practically nothing we could find in its two sequels. A simple phone call serves to make it clear to the viewer that something important has happened at Doug’s bachelor party celebration -correct but inconsequential Justin Bartha-, but not only do they not go straight to the heart of the matter, but Phillips takes things slowly to introduce us to the four members of the pack.

We already knew that the bulk of the story would again take place in Las Vegas but we didn’t know what exactly was going to take them there. It seems that this time it won’t be a bachelor party, as it happened in the first two parts. Everything indicates that the group of friends is going to admit Alan, who hasn’t been taking his medication for several months, to a medical center. As fate would have it, they end up in Las Vegas, the city of vice, where they will once again experience situations on the verge of death and full of humor.
