Review: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

Tucker Max serves up arrogance, misogyny, poo jokes
By TOM MEEK  |  September 23, 2009
1.5 1.5 Stars


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?

    It seems that, these days, being a self-righteous boor is the new "in" thing.
  •   REVIEW: SORORITY ROW  |  September 16, 2009
    You can't fault young actresses (here including Rumer Willis, the daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, and Briana Evigan, who's nearly Moore's double) for jumping into a mindless movie like this one from Stewart Hendler.
  •   REVIEW: WHITEOUT  |  September 16, 2009
    The title of this thriller from Dominic Sena ( Swordfish ) is supposed to describe a brutal Antarctic storm, but what's more likely to come to mind is the goop the film's phalanx of writers used to blot out boos-boos while revising the script.

    David R. Ellis, who helmed Final Destination 2 , pretty much reworks the exact same shebang here.
