Storyline

Chris Martin is a bachelor who wants to take the plunge and marry to his long-time girlfriend. Wanting to enjoy his last few days when he is bachelor, Chris spends several nights hanging out with his old friends, as they drink, swap stories, and chase women. What began as a send-off, however, might be something more serious when Martin starts having second thoughts about matrimony. Written by Anonymous

No doubt, the worst movie I have ever seen in my life
24 July 2000 | by Dr_NaifSee all my reviews

There is nothing interesting in the whole movie for the 95 minutes of the soporific runtime. I had never seen anything so boring and depressing. Don't dare to watch it, as it's a complete waste of money and time and you will just be wishing to end for God's sake!

Charlie Sheen stars here... so what? His role is petty, but just like the roles of the rest of the crew. Their goal seems to induce the audience to sleep.

In a few words, Five aces is insipid, tasteless, stupid, meaningless, illogical, and whatever ugly adjectives you want to add. The screenplay is awful and it's lamely directed. But, what is the story about anyway? About five depressed/ing friends who talk about their by no means interesting life issues during the whole thing. Who could find this enjoyable at all?

Oh, and let's not forget the end... that's the worst by far! A fair, though, to a whole disastrous work!

Definitely, I doubt I'll ever watch anything NON-PURPOSELY worse than Five Aces.
