Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When the furious bride decides to take her Baja honeymoon solo, Nardo follows her-where the lovesick groom is carjacked and left stranded, naked and penniless in a remote part of the Mexican desert. Helpless, Nardo sends out an SOS to Jason and their pal Evan (Adam Pally), an up-and-coming ad exec slated for an important business meeting the next morning. During their ridiculous attempt to rescue Nardo, the trio embarks on a series of increasingly outrageous misadventures involving con artists, drug smugglers and even the Federales. Written by

Absolutely no believable chemistry among the cast. I didn't even laugh once after viewing the film for the 1st 25 minutes. The sad reality is the fact that I am actually a TJ Miller fan but this just did not work out and he could not command this cast or make me believe for once that what was happening could actually happen. The comedians who are actually funny in real life could not act for s@it in this film, pardon my French. The whole interaction between the actors was obviously uncomfortable and awkward. Jokes didn't land and although at points they tried to make certain situations realistically funny, it was not. The pool scene was not funny. They tried to make the situation realistic but it was horrible. Was this film ever screened to an audience, I highly doubt it. I don't know what favors were done for this film but it is so obvious that they just gave this film to TJ Miller and gave him powers and he gave his close comedian friends a break but they cannot gel. This was the complete opposite of The Hangover. This is basically a prime example of what not to do when trying to make a fun road adventure buddy film like The Hangover. Sad attempt. Very Very sad attempt.
