This movie tries to be a 'dark comedy', starting off in a bachelor party, when this go horribly wrong, and each wrong turn brings another horrid event.

that's basically the entire movie.

if you think 'accidentally' cutting someone in half is funny, i guess you're in for a treat. but even though I've seen this film back when I was in my early 20s and my taste in movie... read more

This was a surprisingly interesting film. It reminds me of 'A Simple Plan' which I highly respect. How one little secret can explode into a grotesque and outrageous chain of events.

Christian Slater proves useful in this film aswell as his name Boyd that made me laugh everytime i heard it.

The ending leaves me feeling hopeless though. I guess everyone is punished for ... read more

Well, now here's one that feels like doesn't just feel like another machine-made piece from off the assembly line. Here is a movie that feels like it has it's own ideas, thoughts, edges and all.

The studio execuives didn't dig their claws into this one, sucking all the nerve and originality out of it just to make it inoffensive and mo... read more

"Re-watch - June 13th The trailers for Rough Night keep making me think of Very Bad Things, so since I have no interest in seeing the former I decided to revisit the latter instead. I still have a blast with every moment of this film. The plot is fairly ridiculous, but the actors sell it wonderfully and maintain the insanity and energy throughout the film. I can't recall how long it's been since I last sat through it, but I'll try not to wait so long next time around."

1998 Films Ranked (40 movies items)

"The film's premise could have worked, either as a straight up drama, or a dark comedy, but film just keeps trying to top itself in terms of shock value, but with no wit, rhyme or reason, resulting in a throughly unpleasant, grim, and extremely empty experience. 2.8/10"

Films I've Seen in 2017 (June) (44 movies items)

"When: June 29th First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: DVD from the library. What'd I Think?: High concept comedy is cruel, nasty and mean, but without any kind of point, making it a hollow, bitter mess. My Rating: 3/10 Other Notes: NA."
