I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell

Somewhere, somehow I saw the trailer and/or the poster for this movie and thought it would be the next "Hangover."

Nothing could be further from the truth. The actors are relatively unknown and untalented. There is no Zach Galifiniakis. The jokes are flat. I wish I could have my hour and forty five minutes back. That's right, just under two hours for this crap.

It's like they were trying to clone the original "Hangover." Bunch of drunk guys on a quest to get laid. No roofies this time, no hysterics. Just assholes. And an even bigger train wreck than "The Hangover III."

And "The Hangover" would have been a train wreck to if it weren't for the cast. Bradley Cooper really carried that movie as the straight man. Ken Jeong was phenomenal, Zach Galifiniakis, etc. I died laughing when I saw it. But the formula really only works one time. "The Hangover II" was lukewarm. And "The Hangover III" is not even worth a mention. I wouldn't even recommend it. I mean, how many times can three relatively intelligent grown men be duped and drugged by an idiot.

Not the case with this one. The movie, not just the story, was a train wreck. Can I say that enough? TRAIN WRECK, TRAIN WRECK, TRAIN WRECK, TRAIN WRECK, TRAIN WRECK, TRAIN WRECK!!!!

Don't rent it. Don't stream it. Don't put it in your queue. If you have a guy's night and they want to watch it, fake a phone call from you mother-in-law and get the hell out of there!

Don't be seduced by the trailer.

IMDb gives this movie 5.3/10 stars; 1/10 from the Toast.
