Not very good, but I liked it!
on 28 July 2012
I must admit this film fails on a lot of counts but I did like it. The basic premise: Christian Slater (in a role similar to his Heathers role), Daniel Stern (Home Alone, CHUD), Jeremy Piven (Grosse Point Blank), Jon Favereau (director of Iron Man 2) and that guy with the glasses who was in lots of movies around 1996-97 (Alien Resurrection, Seven, Escape From LA) go on a stag weekend because fatty Jon F is marrying Cameron Diaz (in an intriguingly unglamourous performance). They hire a gorgeous prostitute/stripper, played by "Carla Scott" (aka. porn star Kobe Tai) and Jeremy Piven has a wild, coke fuelled romp with her in the bathroom...and accidentally kills her.
From then on, things take a rather morbid turn with Christian Slater doing his Heathers character again (one of his rare performances with not a whit of Jack Nicholson) and recommending a dangerous and dark solution. They decided to dismember the corpse and bury it in a shallow grave, but keeping that secret will involve a few more graves being dug...
Black humour abounds but often disgusts rather than amuses or impresses. Still, the film isn't nearly as derivative as it seems at first glance and as a relic of the 90s it does have a lot to offer: Cameron Diaz and Kobe Tai in the same movie! An appearance by that guy with the glasses who was in lots of movies around 1996-97! Slapstick involving the handicapped!
