I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell
Earning the type of divisive emotional responses normally reserved for those on the far right or the far left of the political spectrum, writer Tucker Max celebrated his debauchery-driven lifestyle in the memoir I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. Now Max earns credit as both co-screenwriter and producer of the film adaptation with this comedy from Niagara Niagara director Bob Gosse. In the film, Tucker (Gilmore Girls' Matt Czuchry) behaves very badly at his friend's bachelor party, getting his invite to the nuptials revoked. Can he renounce his (not-so) inner selfish jerk in time to… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nominally a gross-out guy-bonding comedy, the film often feels like an attempt to establish an insanity motive for some future crime."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Might be the most hypocritical feature in the history of film as well as the history of hypocrisy, and along with serving beer, I hope they show I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell in hell."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"This movie doesn't know the first thing about comic timing. It's tone deaf, tasteless and irrational material that has all the misplaced arrogance of a rebellious high school drop-out who thinks he or she is too ahead of the game for people to understand."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"Warning: moviegoers with no pre-existing predisposition to find other people's humiliation -- usually women's -- hilarious may feel the need for a shower afterwards."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"A grand, farcical, road-tripping romp in the vein of National Lampoon's Vacation and Road Trip, but updated with the crass, guy's-night-out humor of Role Models and The 40-Year-Old Virgin."
‑ Eric Brach, Boxoffice Magazine
"Even the least discerning fans of lowbrow comedy will need to start digging in order to reach the level achieved by this American indie comedy about three Texan friends on a pre-wedding bender."
‑ Jason Anderson, Toronto Star
"Tucker Max's only real strengths are his outrageousness and his uncompromising self-confidence, but neither comes into play in this punch-pulling, frankly boring film."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"It is rare that I find a film with no redeeming qualities whatsoever."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"If you are a fan of the book, you are bound to be pleased; no pun intended. The film takes bathroom humor to the next level and will bring you to tears from laughter."
‑ Kevin McCarthy, BDK Reviews
"There are moments of rough comic brilliance scattered throughout, but really, this particular antihero is all anti- and zero hero."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"You could get angry that a guy like this even got a chance. Or you could just forget about him, and move on to something worthwhile."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Rarely fails to be excruciating."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Mildly amusing, although not the timelessly anarchic, Hangover-style comedy it clearly wants to be."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"If anything positive can come from this film, it might be the mass acceptance of gay marriage across the land. After all, if Tucker Max symbolizes where heterosexuality is headed, perhaps the alternative is worth a shot."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"If ever a movie needed a restraining order issued against it, it's "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.""
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
