The Hangover Part III
The wolfpack is back in Todd Phillips' conclusion to the comedy trilogy
The girl is soprano Durbin, and her motives are entirely honourable - she wants to give work to 100 unemployed musicians who are, in the style of the Vienna Philharmonic, all male. Having got the orchestra together she needs a conductor, and - a couple of years before Disney thought of him for Fantasia - she opts for the silver-haired and flamboyantly talented Stokowski. Once in his home they tackle a piece by Liszt and the result is a triumph of ingenuousness over art.
More music by Mozart, Verdi and others, plus songs sung by the youthful Deanna, fill a brisk and rather charming 85 minutes.
