Screenwriter Craig Mazin on going sober with a finale of HANGOVER PART III

The Hangover Part III

How do you wake up with a hangover and decide this will be your last one? That’s the question screenwriter Craig Mazin faced when sitting down with director Todd Phillips to write the last and final edition of drunken comedy series, The Hangover Part III.

“We wanted to end it, and we wanted it to feel like there was closure,” said Mazin of the third installment of the extremely lucrative buddy comedy series whose first two films have earned more than $1 billion worldwide. The series has also renewed Hollywood interest in the R-rated comedy. There is no telling what the third film will do. So, the big question remains why end it all here?

“It’s one thing with action franchises to continue on, I don’t see any problem with James Bond heading toward its 30th movie,” he said. “But for comedy… there’s only so much you can do before it starts to feel belabored.”
