Well, was I incorrect? Highly doubtful, unless you missed the big picture of the movie. Zach Galifianakis appears to be the new leader of the infamous Wolf Pack, since his so-called breakout role in the first one--which earned him incredulous Oscar buzz that year--placated him as someone audiences want to see. Hypothetically, if I represented the majority of audiences, he is absolutely not someone I'd like to see throughout the film. I'll admit, he can be funny, on account of the lines he was instructed to recite, but nowhere near tolerable to become a leading player. Both Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms were hardly audible in the trailer, aside from Stu's trademark what-is-going-on shrieking and Phil's attractive expression of confusion. Another key character in the trilogy, as well as this final chapter in particular, is Mr. Chow, played by the excruciating Ken Jeong. He is not funny, nor is he even a shred likable in any aspect. Utterly repulsive. Both he and Zach Galfianakis are catalysts in the already-dwindling trilogy. Again, one film to be watched only once, unless the rare case of amnesia strikes. The fact that The Hangover is only remarkable in its first run proves its mediocrity as a film. True masterful work is depicted in a movie's ability to astound and enthrall viewers whether they've watched it once or countless times. That's cinema, folks. For the time being, enjoy the silence. Yes, this was merely a trailer-post. I am getting far too lazy for my own ambition, aren't I?
