I was actually looking forward to seeing this movie. I like dark comedies and after a weekend inside I wanted to see something that made me laugh, that made me glad I was at the movies. All this film made me was sick. Sick at the thought that the filmmakers believed they created something worthwhile and funny. Believe me, it's not. The first step to making a film that has so many repulsive moments in it is to have a lead character that is good, decent and worth watching. Otherwise, all those gross, disgusting, inhuman things your characters do make the audience feel horrible. There is no one normal in this film to relate to. Furthermore, the idea that everyone would behave like this with the right set of circumstances is abhorant.
Certainly, given the way society is today, the premise of this film could probably actually happen. Five guys throw a bachelor party, imbibe lots of drugs and alcohol, hire a stripper/hooker to entertain, only to have one of them kill her accidently during sex. All believable and, up to this point, has some funny moments. However, once they "take care of the problem", the film takes a drastic downhill turn. Slater, playing an adult version of his HEATHERS role going on an out-of-control murder spree killing anyone who tries to expose their terrible secret. The film becomes so angry and unfunny, you don't know where to look to escape.
