Trivia

The character "Pookie" played by Alphonso McAuley is a nod to Chris Rock's character "Pookie" from New Jack City (1991). Some of the same lines were mentioned during the crackhouse scene. See more »

Goofs

The uniformed station officer in the police station scene is wearing Captain's bars, and he tells the two police officers to report to the [plainclothes] lieutenant. Captains outrank lieutenants pretty much everywhere. Further, the captain mans the radio in other scenes. It is very unlikely that a police captain would be working at the station's front desk, and it's more likely that the officers would be told to report to the captain, not the lieutenant. See more »

Quotes

Hulk: Pookie, what you smoking on?
Pookie: Weed laced with embalming fluid. It's pretty good.

Surprisingly Good
20 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the slew of "get drunk, end up in bad situation" movies that have flooded the industry, it was hard to get excited for this movie. I enjoy Elizabeth Banks and the trailers did seem funny. I just couldn't help but have that feeling of "been there done that". And that feeling is valid but it doesn't mean that the movie was bad, in fact, I quite enjoyed it.

The plot plays out like any number of movies in the genre. Main character gets drunk, wakes up in a bad situation and has to try and retrace their steps to get from point A to point B (point B often being supremely important). While the plot was predictable, it's what happens between point A and point B that matters.

Despite the number of movies similar, the director was still able to find some uniquely funny scenes to put Banks' character in. Some scenes that come to mind are an impound lot and a crack house. While not all scenes hit the mark, there was enough here to be worth a viewing. I also found the running gag about Banks' characters profession to be extremely funny.

So what make this seemingly mediocre film worth viewing? Two things in my opinion. Firstly, this is the first movie of this type where I actually felt for the character. I wanted her to get where she wanted to go and that kept me involved in the movie. Secondly, I appreciate the fact that we can have a movie like this without relying on extremely rude and crude scenes. Yes, there is profanity and some implied sex but in comparison to other films with similar plots (Hangover), this movie is tame. But that doesn't mean it's not funny as I feel it is able to remain funny throughout.

If you into movies like the Hangover, Hot Tub Time Machine, or Bridesmaids, then this is a must watch. If you love comedies then this is also a good bet. It may not end p being a movie you need to own but you can do much much worse than giving this movie a shot.
