About 3 weeks ago I had the pleasure to participate in bachelors party. It was organized for one of the Three Wise Men. A beautifully executed ensemble of laughter, games, bonding, classical strip-tease and of course drinking. Finished successfully with him tieing the knot with his fiancée. Since I attended the wedding the company at my table gave me a tip to see the movie which had similar theme as the bachelor party I attended.
Lets check some movie facts. It was directed by the same guy that directed Starsky & Hutch1; Todd Phillips that is, and I must say he visualized the script; written by John Lucas and Scott Moore in a funny and mysterious way so that the movie keeps the viewer in suspense till the end. But for your movie ticket you will also get 100 minutes of comedy. Actors Bradley Cooper portraying Phil, Ed Helms as Stu, Justin Bartha as the groom to be Dough and Zach Galifianakis as a brother in law to be – the bearded Alen start their four Musketeer last night in Sin City.
Movie starts 5 hours before the wedding with a call to worried bride to be? Phil is calling to tell her information about Dough, and then the roller coaster of memories starts…
I can easily rate the movie 7 of 10.
Through memories we discover what the Musketeers did on the last night. All the funny, gambling, nut and strip-tease memories are compacted into simple, yet unpredictable story. Some of the movie scenes are obscene and the movie is rated R so you might think twice about viewing the movie with children. Otherwise I can recommend it if you are looking for a relaxing and thought free evening.
Here is a trailer; a sample of what you will be getting.
