Trivia

You may have noticed that when Dan called Tucker from jail, he did not have the obligatory '555' in the number. That is because the number is the real Tucker Max's actual phone number. See more »

Bad Movie, Bad Script
6 October 2009 | by (Antarctica) – See all my reviews

"I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell" is a poorly scripted R-rated fratboy comedy based on Tucker Max's book of the same name.

The movie is based on the so-called "true" stories of Tucker Max's book. The problem is that it is now coming out that these stories are likely not that true (and heavily exaggerated) and cinema exposes the weak storytelling of mishmashed comedic moments shoehorned into a script that is designed to glorify Tucker Max - the character and the author - at the expense of drama, comedy and internal logic.

The one positive note would be the quality of the acting. The lead characters are well cast and deliver the material sincerely - the problem being that the material is weak.
