In addition to the first two installments in “The Hangover” trilogy of raunchy comedies in 2009 and 2011, Bartha and Cooper (who was nominated for an Oscar for last year’s “Silver Linings Playbook”) appeared together in 2006’s “Failure to Launch” and 2009’s “New York, I Love You.” “He’s a great guy. We’ve done five movies together. He’s a very talented actor,” praised Bartha, 34, who also co-starred in another hit franchise – the “National Treasure” movies with Oscar winner Nicolas Cage (“Leaving Las Vegas”). Recently, Bartha was the lead on “The New Normal,” the NBC sitcom that was cancelled earlier this month after one season. his filmed “Normal” on weekdays and “Part III” on weekends, where he worked 13-hour days.
Directed by Todd Phillips, “The Hangover” movies are about a group of friends called the Wolfpack, whose number includes Bartha as Doug, Cooper as Phil, Ed Helms (TV’s “The Office”) as Stu, and Zach Galifianakis (“Due Date,” which Phillips also directed) as Alan. Alan is a hirsute naÏve simpleton marching to the beat of a different drum. Thanks to Alan, the Wolfpack ends up waking up after a long night of drinking and debauchery to unfamiliar settings, unusual circumstances, and Doug usually missing. In addition to piecing everything together, staying out of trouble, and finding Doug, they also run afoul of Chinese criminal Leslie Chow (Detroit native and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” star Ken Jeong, who earned his medical degree from the University of North Carolina and is a licensed physician).
“Todd Phillips, in my opinion, is the greatest comedy director alive,” praised Bartha. Filmed on a budget of $35 million, “The Hangover” was 2009’s 10th highest-grossing film, becoming an unexpected critical and commercial hit. Since it grossed approximately $467.5 million, a sequel was inevitable. “The Hangover Part II” was released in 2011 and received mostly negative reviews for its vulgarity and for not having the element of surprise the original had. Nonetheless, it grossed $581 million, surpassing the original and becoming the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. “The fans of the first movie will be very excited when they watch (‘Part III’) because it had that spontaneous feeling the first one had,” assured Bartha.
“Part III” begins with Alan, off his meds for six months, buying a giraffe, which inadvertently gets decapitated by an overpass, causing a multi-car accident. Alan’s rich dad (Wayne State University alumnus Jeffrey Tambor, TV’s “Arrested Development”) pays the right people off to make it go away, but the stress causes him to have a heart attack and die. Doug, Phil, and Stu stage an intervention at the behest of Alan’s family. Alan agrees to go to rehab and as they’re driving him there, the Wolfpack is ambushed by a gangster named Marshall (John Goodman, “The Big Lebowski”). They learn Chow has broken out of prison and stolen $40 million in gold belonging to Marshall, who coerces the Wolfpack into tracking down Chow. To motivate them, Marshall kidnaps Doug. Having no choice but to find Chow, the Wolfpack locates him in the place where it all began… Las Vegas.
Heather Graham (“Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me”) reprises her role as Jade from the first movie. Also reprising their roles as Doug and Phil’s spouses, respectively, are Sasha Barrese (“Let Me In”) and Gillian Vigman (TV’s “Sons & Daughters”). Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids”) joins the cast as a love interest for Alan. However, boxer Mike Tyson doesn’t appear in this installment as himself as he did in the first two movies. he feels lucky to be part of “The Hangover” franchise and doesn’t believe a third film is overkill.
“No, it hasn’t reached that point. Fortunately, when it comes to comedies, the object is make people laugh. Comedies aren’t necessarily like ‘The Godfather,’ which tells a specific story. If people still want to laugh, then I think (another film is) absolutely necessary,” explained Bartha. “Whether you liked the second one or not, you’re dealing with talented people and all they want to do is make people laugh… People are going to be very, very pleased with the third one…”
