From start to finish, it's a story of friendship between four street-wise males who don't mind using violence to achieve the lives that they want. They trust no one but each other, which is vital to their success as mobsters.

Three versions are available in Germany: One version for department stores etc. This version lacks most of the violent parts and is rated "Not under 16". The other version, although rated "Not under 18", still misses two short scenes of violence (Christian Slater getting hit by a rack, a bloody saw lying in a bathtub). Last but not least the complete uncut version was released after the re-rating in 2004 when it was given a "Not under 16" rating. See more »
I know why people hate this film. They are wrong, but I know why they hate it. They take it too seriously. They are too easily offended. They fail to pick up on the subtle little reminders that Peter Berg includes every once in awhile to let you know, "hey, this is a comedy." The story revolves around a main character, who is soon to be wed to a dominating fiancé, who seems to love the idea of having a big wedding more than she loves her her future husband. Well, our main character and his four closest buddies are off to Vegas for one last night of freedom and fun. In the group you have a pair of Jewish brothers that hate each other, a confused mechanic, and a real estate agent that is a cross between Anthony Robbins and Charles Manson. Well, not to give anything away, but let's just say that some very bad things happen in Vegas, very bad things, and how it will play out after that, well, it is just too entertaining to watch. The acting in this movie is superb, I mean great. The story is fantastic, with tons of hooks and switches. Yes, there is violence and somethings happen, that if they occurred in real life, well, you might be disturbed. HOWEVER, this is a movie! And it is one of my favorite films of all-time. I give it a 10, without hesitation.
