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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There are moments of rough comic brilliance scattered throughout, but really, this particular antihero is all anti- and zero hero.

If ever a movie needed a restraining order issued against it, it's "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell."

When it comes to rowdiness and raunch, it's right up there with Animal House and Porky's -- and beyond -- but the writers and director Bob Gosse know how to turn excess, self-indulgence, selfishness and chauvinism back on itself with blowtorch impact.

The movie plays out like a watered-down and far less comical version of The Hangover, without the likable characters and the crazy fun.

Tucker Max [is] a child. A toddler. A three-year-old screaming, "Poopie, poopie, POOPIE!" at the top of his lungs in the middle of the supermarket...

Speaking generously for the sake of everyone involved in this mess, let's hope the title proves prophetic.

I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell is the perfect cautionary tale for any frat boy who considers making a film based on the phrase, "Dude, remember that one time?"
