- "Toodle-loo, motherfuckers!"
—Mr. Leslie Chow
Leslie Chow, better known as Mr. Chow, was a character in The Hangover film series who served as an antagonist in the first and third installments and as a protagonist in the second installment. Chow will be a protagonist in the upcoming Life's a Fish and Then You Fry film Battle for the Scarab Jewel, along with Frank and Kamalia Phellan; the two main protagonists. Chow is to help them find the Scarab Jewel, planning to turn the jewel in to the black market for money.
Leslie Chow is an Asian man with large cheek muscles, a small nose, hair usually styled barely similar to that of a pompadour, and occasionally wears a pair of large sunglasses. Chow is sometimes seen wearing a large jacket, making it hard to tell his muscle mass. Chow is seen naked many times in The Hangover series, revealing he has little muscle on his upper body. Chow also has somewhat large eyes for a Chinese man.
In the first film of The Hangover series, Chow is seen wearing many shining gold rings on his fingers, accompanied by a thin bronze and saddle brown jacket and tight white pants. Chow is also seen wearing a thin white turtleneck.
Chow was the leader of a gang in Las Vegas and is a wanted international criminal, therefore, he uses many terms of profanity and mature language, seemingly every chance that he can get. One of Chow's common phrases is "toodle-loo motherfucker(s)". In addition to using much profanity, Chow uses dis-polite names to intimidate his enemies, such as calling Marshall a "fat fuck". Chow is extremely rude, offensive, psychotic, loud, humorous, disrespectful, and flamboyant. Chow considers other people's pain and injuries humorous and considers this to be his interpretation of having a good time. In the first film, Chow had a hatred for the Wolfpack members such as Alan Garner who supposedly rapped Chow and locked him in the trunk of their car. This was because the Wolfpack lost his purse filled with $80,000. Although the "purse" was actually a suitcase, Chow considers it a purse.
Chow appears to be perverted and does not care if he is naked in front of the others publicly or privately. Although, does not like having his "shit" messed with, meaning his penal organ. Chow also seems to be against help from other people and attempts to do everything himself. For example, in The Hangover Part III, Marshall explains that he offered to leave Chow alone in return for the location of his $21 million in gold, which Chow stole earlier. Yet Chow refused his offer and mocked Marshall by throwing the phone against the window. Chow also takes offense to people questioning his abnormal conditions, such as his problem of his heart stopping and later beating again. This is revealed in The Hangover Part II when the rest of the Wolfpack lock him in an icebox to try and cover his dead body after he seemingly dies from sniffing cocaine.
Chow first appeared after Alan, Phil, and Stu heard banging noises coming from the trunk of their car and stopped the car to open the trunk. Chow jumped out of the trunk naked and began to hit all of them. Chow then asked Alan "You going to fuck on me?" which implies that Alan rapped Chow. There was also a condom seen in the car before Chow jumped out of the trunk which confirms that this did happen. Chow escapes while still naked, leaving the Wolfpack wounded after violently attacking them.
Chow later appears when he and his two goons rear end the Wolfpack's car. Chow gets out of his large black car wearing cloths and asks for the Wolfpack to get out of their car. After his goons force the Wolfpack out of their car, Chow demands that they give him back his purse which had $80,000 inside. After telling of missing their friend Doug and not remembering anything that had happened the previous night, Chow makes a deal with the Wolfpack to bring him $80,000 to the desert at dawn in exchange for Doug who Chow claims to have captured.
After a night of gambling to make the money to give Chow, Alan, Phil, and Stu bring the money to Chow in the desert. It is this point in the film that Chow reveals his name as "Mr. Chow". Chow asks for the Wolfpack to throw over his money before giving them Doug. They throw over the money to Chow and he gives them Doug who is actually revealed to be a different Doug who sold Alan the drugs that caused the Wolfpack's hangover. The Wolfpack demands Chow to give them back the money. But, Chow tells them that it is not his problem and tells them to suck on his "Little Chinese nuts". Chow and his goons drive away not to been seen again in the film.
The Hangover Part II
Chow returns as a friend of the Wolfpack who Alan reveals to still keep in touch with at the near beginning of the film. Alan had a picture of Chow in his bedroom. Chow makes his appearance in the film when the Wolfpack notices a mushroom-like thing sticking out of the bed. The monkey, discovered by the Wolfpack after their second hangover, starts slapping at it and it is revealed to actually be Chow's penis when he wakes up from the bed and says "Tell that gay monkey to leave my shit alone!". Chow then asks Alan for his pants and starts talking about things that the Wolfpack does not remember after their hangover. Chow then seems to drop dead and sure enough, Alan, Phil, and Stu think that he is dead and try to hide his body in an icebox.
Later on in the film, after the rest of the Wolfpack free Chow from the icebox, it is revealed that Chow was not dead and claims to have problems of having his heart stop and start back up again. He also asks when someone says they had a bad day if they died. Soon afterwards when the Wolfpack tries to steal the monkey back, the monkey alerts two of the thugs and a chase begins with Chow driving the car. Chow and the others leave the monkey on a doorstep after the chase and soon meet with a man named Kingsley who reveals himself to be a police officer which leads to Chow's arrest. While being arrested, Chow uses one of his typical quotes "Toodaloo motherfucka!".
The Hangover Part III
Mr. Leslie Chow returns with his biggest role yet, possibly being the secondary character. Chow escapes prison by using a riot as a cover up. After a mob leader named Marshall demands the Wolfpack to bring Chow to him, it is revealed that Chow stole half a the gold that Marshall tried to steal and killed the drivers of the truck transporting the gold. In this case, Chow posed as a police officer and shot them.
Chow later appears in the film in Mexico where he asks Alan to meet him. But, only if he comes alone. Chow then notices Phil and Stu in the car while he is talking to Alan and demands to know why they really wanted to meet with him. Chow is later seen in a bar where sings a song for what is seemingly karaoke entertainment at the bar. This reveals that Chow is clearly a terrible singer. Chow then sits down at a table with the rest of the Wolfpack where they try to drug him by putting a drug in his beer. Chow smells the drug in his beer and threatens to cut Stu's vein if the Wolfpack does not tell Chow why they tried to drug him. It then comes to Chow's knowledge that the Wolfpack is actually working for Marshall.
Chow and the Wolfpack later meet at his apartment where they plan to steal back the gold that Chow stole from Marshall, which is, according to Chow, hidden in his former mansion home in Mexico. As Chow is explaining his plan, it is interrupted by the chickens that Chow trained to kill. Chow and the Wolfpack kill the chickens and attempt to break into Chow's former home the next day. Chow and the Wolfpack drug the mansion's guard dogs and cut the alarm wires to get to the gold that Chow hid. The Wolfpack gives Chow all of the gold. However, Chow then locks the rest of the Wolfpack in the basement, escapes with the gold, and sets off the alarm, leaving the Wolfpack to be arrested.
The Wolfpack later tracks Chow to Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, where Phil and Alan break into his room and attempt to drug him with a syringe. Chow attacks Phil and Alan and jumps from the balcony. Chow then deploys a parachute and attempts to escape, only to land on Stu's limo. Stu stops the limo, throwing Chow to the ground after hitting a fire hydrant. At first, Chow appears dead, but survives. Stu locks him in the truck of their limo and the Wolfpack meets with Marshall to give him the gold Chow stole, which Phil and Alan took from Chow's room in Caesar's Palace. After hearing that Chow blew the first half of gold in Bangkok, Marshall shoots at the trunk of the limo, presumably killing Chow. Chow then shoots Marshall and his men, killing them. Chow prepares to shoot the Wolfpack, but changes his mind because Alan unlocked the trunk in the limo, giving Chow a fighting chance. The Wolfpack then departs with Chow left disgusted that Alan no longer has interest in being his friend.
Battle for the Scarab Jewel
Chow meets Frank and Kamalia Phellan at a restaurant as they are discussing their encounter with a large scarab beetle-like monster. Chow hears of the "scarab" part of the discussion from his table while drinking a piña colada and rudely interrupts the conversation. Chow then tells Frank and Kamalia that he is after the Scarab Jewel which the very monster that attacked the two is also looking to steal. Chow decides to make a deal with Frank and Kamalia that if they help him steal the Scarab Jewel, they will be able to defeat Scarab in the process.
The three meet at Chow's headquarters in a nearby apartment where they plan to break into the museum where the Scarab Jewel is displayed without triggering the alarm system. The next night, after spending the whole at the museum looking for entries and exits, break into the museum from the air duct system and Chow slides down on a rope which Frank and Kamalia hold from an open air vent on the ceiling. But, just as Chow prepares to snatch the jewel, Scarab attacks him, forcing Chow to lose his grip of the rope, which forces Frank and Kamalia down to the floor as well, tripping the alarm system while Scarab escapes without the jewel. Chow and the two are soon arrest by the local Chinese authorities and taken to prison.
