CHICAGO – The main problem with “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell,” based on Tucker Max’s memoir about a hard partying, devil-may-care womanizer, is that the screenwriter (Max himself) didn’t have the cojones to go all the way.

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 1.0/5.0
Rating: 1.0/5.0

If Max is going to relate this “based-on-fact” story, so awesomely politically incorrect, why not just take it to the limit and make it totally offensive, instead of trying to placate the “audience” with stupid – and unbelievable – happy endings and upper middle class banalities like getting married and celebrating “relationships.”

I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell is the adventurous story of three young lads who set out to have a grand time on friend Dan’s (Geoff Stults) bachelor party, by kidnapping him against the wishes of his intended and going to out-of-town Salem, where apparently they have a strip club where you can touch the girls all you want. That’s called prostitution in most territories, apparently except Salem.

”I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” opened September 25th everywhere. Featuring Matt Czuchry, Jesse Bradford, Geoff Stults and Traci Lords, directed by Bob Grosse. Rated “R” for obvious reasons
