Trivia

In the USA, this film is called 'The Bachelor Weekend' because the term stag is not used in America. See more »

Goofs

During the final scene when The Machine is singing One, his boutonnière appears to move from the left lapel to the right and back again. What is actually happening is the image was reversed in post-production, probably to make the direction the actor was looking match the other shots. Thus, not only does the boutonnière change sides, the pocket and handkerchief does, too (as well as the hand with which the actor holds the microphone). See more »

Quotes

Fionan: Yea. No. No way. No stags. Sorry.
Big Kevin: Fionan, have you ever even been on a stag?
Fionan: [nods his head, then hesitates] No.
Big Kevin: So not even a weekend walk?
Fionan: I don't enjoy being in exclusive male company for long periods. There's something forced about it. And false. All that banter. I just, I mean, under what other circumstances would we five ever agree to be in a tent, in the shitting rain, in mid November, all for the sake of some needless ritual?

Wonderful comedy
30 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I'm not quite sure why this film has so many bad reviews. I know a lot of people saw the trailer and dismissed it as a Hangover wannabe, but this film was far from it.

The cast was amazing and the film had a surprising depth to it, I was expecting a silly stag comedy, but instead got a movie that was really character-focused, rather than situation-focused. I do disagree with the film being renamed for American audiences, because the film has the word "Stag" in it multiple times, and honestly, you can sort of work it out. "The Bachelor Weekend" really does sound like the name of a bad rip off of The Hangover from a $2 shop.

The only other issue I had with it was the lack of chemistry between the bride and the groom, but they're not seen together much in the film so it's pretty much a non-issue. Don't watch this film if you're looking for a trashy comedy, it's probably not for you.

It actually felt a bit like The World's End, there was plenty of comedy, and the cinematography was brilliant, but the main focus was on a few metro men in their mid thirties being strung along by a madman.
