Within the first five minutes of “The Hangover Part III” a giraffe comes to a very bad end, and some roosters and dogs also get treated roughly in the film. Yet the most disturbing animal abuse you’ll find here is the continuous beating of a dead horse.

The first “Hangover” movie was hardly a work of genius, but it had three decent character actors — Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis — and a script that never took its eye off the ball: jokes. Director Todd Philips booted screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore after the first film, though, and decided to write the sequels himself with a bunch of hired hands.
