Negatives Outweighed the Positives
13 October 2016 | by larrys3See all my reviews

I'm not in the demographic that this film was intended for, so perhaps I'm not the best person to rate it. The premise revolves around its main character Joshy's (Thomas Middleditch) decision to still hold his pre- planned "bachelor party", even though his fiancé committed suicide some 4 months beforehand.

As Joshy's friends and acquaintances gather at a rented home in the country, I felt, as things progressed, that some of the dark and dry humor was quite effective, especially that of the dweebish Adam (Alex Ross Perry). However, more often than not the characters and plot machinations could get rather annoying and even "go off the rails" into areas that just didn't work, in my opinion.

To note, there's plenty of drug usage on screen, lots of raw language, explicit references, and one scene of nudity.

All in all, unfortunately I thought the negatives here outweighed the positives and thus only a fair rating.
