    - The premise that brings them all together again with Alan works well.

    - Unlike part II, the plot is silly, but fun, interesting... keeps you watching. They abandon the amnesia/what did we do last night gimmick that was so great in the first movie and such crap in the second.

    - Lots of references to the first movie, including new/old flashbacks (a flashback to a scene that was filmed new just for this movie, but chronologically it took place in the first film)

    - Old characters from the first movie, even ones that had a bit part.

    Overall, it was fun to see the characters again and it was a huge step forward in making up for the disastrous, piece of shit part II. We're not talking about Lincoln or Braveheart... for what this movie was trying to be, it succeeded.

    It was much better than the second one.

    the second movie was so bad

    - instead of baby, you have old man in wheelchair
    - instead of losing a tooth, guy loses a finger
    - instead of a tiger, you have a monkey


    this film tried to be like the first... not as good for sure, but it was fun to watch

    Yes the first one is still by far the best. I think they relied on far more action in the third one. But I left entertained so no complaints.

    The second one sucked. I had no interest in the brother in-law therefore the mystery didn't hold me. The nail in the coffin for me was...

    Spoiler
    that the brother-in-law seemed awfully happy that he lost a finger.

    Ya. The dude was a master cellist and a surgeon prodigy. Everything he had studied for was out the window

    Instead of Chow the chink popping out of the trunk, you have Chow the chink popping out of the freezer.
