'Beer in Hell' evokes gasps and laughs

September 25, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
"I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" is based on a best-seller by Tucker Max.He's a self confessed narcissist, who writes in detail all about his real life exploits of drinking a lot and having sex a lot.

Frankly, I couldn't believe what i was reading, and I thought, "How are they going to turn this into a movie that a general, adult-aged audience would want to see?"

"I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" has only a few G-rated moments. For the most part, this is a hard, R-rated comedy.

While Tucker Max's book is a sex-filled, boozed-filled memoir of sorts, and a huge hit among the college crowd, the movie has been tamed to be much more female friendly. So if you never read the book, you'll never know the difference.

I think it will appeal to the same open minded movie goers who laughed their way through "The Hangover."

In the film, "Gilmore Girls" star Matt Czuchry, who plays Tucker Max takes his friends on a bachelor party road trip.

Jesse Bradford plays a recently dumped and bitterly funny guy, and "Seventh Heaven's" Geoff Stults plays the groom-to-be.

All three are funny in this movie.

Sometimes you'll wince, and sometimes you'll cringe and laugh at the same time.

And sometimes, you won't believe what's coming out of someone's mouth.

The film has its harsh moments, and it's certainly not for everybody.

So if you're sensitive to explicit language, sex talk and toilet humor, don't even try.

There is a lot of guy humor in the movie. I saw it with four guys on my block, and we all laughed.

I can't say I'm proud at everything I found funny, but I can say five out five of us had a good time at the craziness played out on screen.

There's sex, nudity, shock and bad language. So, if you have concerns, this is your second warning.

"I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" is very blunt, sometimes biting with moments that make you laugh despite the fact they're just wrong.
