Storyline

Angelenos Doug Billings and Tracy Garner are about to get married. Two days before the wedding, the four men in the wedding party - Doug, Doug's two best buddies Phil Wenneck and Stu Price, and Tracy's brother Alan Garner - hop into Tracy's father's beloved Mercedes convertible for a 24-hour stag party to Las Vegas. Phil, a married high school teacher, has the same maturity level as his students when he's with his pals. Stu, a dentist, is worried about everything, especially what his controlling girlfriend Melissa thinks. Because she disapproves of traditional male bonding rituals, Stu has to lie to her about the stag, he telling her that they are going on a wine tasting tour in the Napa Valley. Regardless, he intends on eventually marrying her, against the advice and wishes of his friends. And Alan seems to be unaware of what are considered the social graces of the western world.

Goofs

Mr. Chow, at one point says "Suck on these little Chinese nuts", but speaks Korean to his "goons" when commanding them to remove the main characters from the car. Mr. Chow never calls himself Chinese, the previous statement could have been his attempt at humor (He is always making jokes and laughing.) Chow is a Chinese last name and it is entirely possible for someone that is Chinese to be able to speak Korean as well. See more »

User Reviews

 
Great ridiculous stupid comedy
24 April 2019 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

A lot of excellent jokes throughout. Raunchy crude fun time, well deserving of the Oscar win that it received. I originally saw it in theaters and used to own on it Blu Ray a while back.

It's a great hit, especially for fans of party flicks/dumb comedies like myself. There are a few things that rub me the wrong way, however, like the police brutality scene, the stuff involving a baby, & the constant meanness towards Alan otherwise I love this movie!
