The Hangover 3 reviews are overwhelmingly negative so far – the film is at less than 25% on review aggregating site Rotten Tomatoes, and still dropping. But will the Hangover 3 reviews be enough to drive away movie audiences this weekend?
Remember, the second installment of the series did not track much better, review-wise, and still managed to pull in more than $250 million worldwide. The success of the first film was a surprise, and director Todd Phillips is looking to recapture that magic this weekend.
A rainy Memorial Day weekend may make moviegoers more likely to spring for tix, but if word-of-mouth stinks, maybe the Hangover III reviews will sink the film before it even opens. Are you planning on seeing it?
