If “The Hangover” franchise were a cake, the oven timer would have just buzzed. It is so done. And when you opened the oven, the cake would have fallen.
With “The Hangover Part III,” the raunchy, outrageous comedy franchise about the Wolf Pack — four buddies and their drunken, prenuptial misadventures — has lost nearly all the raunch and most of the outrage. It’s not really a bad movie. It just suffers by comparison and expectation.
