Three Exclusive Clips Released From Buddy-Comedy ‘The Stag’

12 March 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Released this coming Friday, The Stag sees John Butler make his directorial debut…and what better way to start than with a cracking British comedy!

When one shy groom opts out of a boozy Stag Do, his best man decides that a quiet walking-weekend would better calm his nerves. However, when the bride’s manly brother tags along all hell breaks loose! Have a read of the official synopsis below:

Self-confessed metrosexual Fionan (Hugh O’Conor) doesn’t want a Stag Do, but would happily attend the Hen. His concerned bride-to-be Ruth (Amy Huberman) persuades the marginally more macho best man Davin (Andrew Scott) to organise one. Reluctantly he agrees, while doing everything he can to stop Ruth’s infamously alpha male brother, known only as ‘The Machine’ (Peter McDonald), gatecrashing their sober, walking-weekend, excuse for a Stag Party. Not so easily foxed, ‘The Machine’ tracks them down, sparking to »

Review: The Stag

5 March 2014 11:49 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

John Butler makes his feature debut with this likeable and amusing male-bonding comedy, co-written with cast member Peter McDonald (Moone Boy). Obsessing to the point of implosion about the details of his impending nuptials, meek set designer Fionan (Hugh O'Conor) isn’t interested in having a stag do.

But anxious bride-to-be Ruth (Threesome’s Amy Huberman) feels her fiancé could use some respite from table planning and place settings and so persuades best man Davin (Sherlock’s Andrew Scott) to cobble together a stag party.

Unfortunately, Ruth’s terrifyingly macho brother ‘The Machine’ (McDonald) won’t be stopped from attending and a planned quiet break in rural Ireland soon takes in lost bearings, lost clothes and hilarious clashes with electric fences. Will Fionan and co make it to the church on time?

Co-produced by the Irish Film Board and Arrow Films – who’ve carved a commendable niche with UK releases »

Film Review: ‘The Stag’

8 January 2014 5:51 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A bachelor-party weekend goes predictably awry in novelist John Butler’s broad, intermittently amusing laffer “The Stag.” Though formulaic and cartoonish, this feel-good comedy, featuring an uptight groom-to-be, his alpha-male future brother-in-law and assorted friends hiking in the Irish wilds, is the sort of harmless entertainment that fuels inactive evenings in front of the tube and helps pass the time on long flights. A mid-March opening in Ireland and the U.K. is likely to generate a decent chunk of change, though ancillary is where sales will be strongest.

The script never gives any indication why Ruth (Amy Huberman) wants to marry Fionan (Hugh O’Conor), but the spark-free couple is getting ready to tie the knot, and she thinks it would be a good thing if his best man, Davin (fast-rising actor Andrew Scott, “Sherlock”), arranged a stag camping weekend. Persnickety Fionan, a stage set designer, agrees as long as Ruth’s overbearing brother, »
