Consensus: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell fails in its attempts at raunchy humor, and Tucker Max comes across so unlikable and outrageous that the film's inevitable story arc feels forced.

Globe and Mail

Nominally a gross-out guy-bonding comedy, the film often feels like an attempt to establish an insanity motive for some future crime.

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.

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.

It is rare that I find a film with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

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.

Rarely fails to be excruciating.

Mildly amusing, although not the timelessly anarchic, Hangover-style comedy it clearly wants to be.
