Review: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

Tucker Max serves up arrogance, misogyny, poo jokes

The mantra "What would Tucker do?" gets bandied about in this boys-gone-wild silliness from Bob Gosse. Tucker Max, if you didn't know, is the Peter Pan frat boy who's carved out a cottage industry by wrapping his hell-bent-partying tell-all blog into a bestseller and then some.

The movie pairs Tucker (Matt Czuchry) with a pair of buddies who have real issues. Drew (well played by Jesse Bradford), a brainiac who lapses into Rain Man-esque rants, discovers his girlfriend is cheating on him with a gangsta rapper. And Dan (Geoff Stults), who's about to get married, will find his wedding endangered by Tucker's antics.

The big event, Dan's bachelor party, is predictable and tedious, and a blatant set-up for Tucker's shtick. Czuchry plays the self-proclaimed narcissist with charisma, but how can you cozy up to an arrogant misogynist whose epiphany comes amid a fecal fusillade?
