What to know

critics 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. Read critic reviews

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • True life and humor do make an appearance, though the morals contain an unlikely fairytale aspect for such atrocious actions, and the laughs come from disgust and shock.

    November 28, 2020 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Disappointing. The real Tucker Max wouldn't have given a shit about anyone's wedding.

    In "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell," it is surprising that Tucker Max(Matt Czuchry, of television shows infinitely better than this) can study in law school when he is constantly either thinking about sex or acting on those urges, like the night before when his tryst with a deaf woman(Yvette Yates) was interrupted by the police for being too loud. So, he is definitely the right person to schedule the bachelor party for his pal Don(Geoff Stults). The local no touching rule complicates matters by forcing them to go a couple of hours out of their way, even if Don has to lie to his fiancee, Kristy(Keri Lynn Pratt), about this road trip. And hopefully it will cheer up Drew(Jesse Bradford) who has been morose and angry ever since he caught his girlfriend giving head. See, I have a soft spot in my heart for rogues which is what drew me to "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" in the first place but shortly came to regret my decision. While the movie is certainly worthless, it was not quite reprehensible enough for me to fumigate my DVD player. The filmmakers think these men are likable and their antics funny but they are anything but, especially in the insults aimed at women. As much as they may want to deny it, there is very little difference between sexism and misogyny as Tucker takes objectifying women to new lows in seeking to zero out his purity test score. Even then, the movie has a sentimental finale, after the requisite gross-out gags.

    This is really a poor man's "Hangover". I really wanted to like it, and I did like some about it, but overall was letdown. The two biggest problems I had with the movie were the characters and it ran too long. The thing about movies like the "Hangover" that make them great are the characters. You get emotionally invested in them, and have a true affection for them. Here, I didn't care about any of the guys. Tucker was a douche, Drew was whiny, and Dan was just there. Most everything Drew said tried to be funny, but really came out stupid, and I was left thinking "Why in the hell did he say that? It makes absolutely no sense." As far as Tucker, what is there to like about him? I mean he has a couple funny moments, but the movie is about him, he should be somewhat likable. Instead he's a tool, and like Drew just has some really ignorant lines. The movie is almost two hours, and could have easily been a half hour shorter. Cut out half the horrible dialogue and it may have been a good movie. Instead it's a big waste of time. I'm all for R rated comedies and guy humor, but this was more douche bag humor(not saying I'm not a douche bag). Just watch the "Hangover" movies or "Van Wilder" instead, because why settle for a lousy cheap imitation?

    Tucker Max. You either love him or hate him. Based on the book of the same name by lead character, Tucker Max, who drags his best friends Dan who is getting married, and Drew on a bachelor road trip to a strip club (where it's "hands-on" fun) in Salem the night that Dan's devoutly Baptist mother-in-law is coming into town to finalize the last of the wedding plans. In typical buddy/bromance/bachelor party movie outings, things don't go according to plan. After a night of debauchery and bar hopping, the groom finds himself in jail and caught in a lie by his fiancée while Drew, who supposed hates all women ends up at the home of a single-mom-stripper. Meanwhile Tucker finds himself dashing naked through a hotel lobby with a case of explosive diarrhea from a can of beer laced with a laxative by a woman he insults. (yeah us women don't get mad, we get even) When it comes out that Tucker only forced Dan into a lie to cross an achievement off his sexual bucket list, Dan cuts Tucker out of his wedding and Tucker's comeuppance will leave you gasping (if not gagging) with laughter. This is a vulgar comedy that pushes the boundaries of what's considered appropriate comedic material. It dares you to laugh offering up terrible examples of human behavior with insults flying out like shrapnel. But...it's funny. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=105pcty" target="_blank"><img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/105pcty.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=2iuou9x" target="_blank"><img src="http://i51.tinypic.com/2iuou9x.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=11udaq1" target="_blank"><img src="http://i52.tinypic.com/11udaq1.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=qyu25i" target="_blank"><img src="http://i52.tinypic.com/qyu25i.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a>
