A rag tag band of idiots on the verge of signing a recording contract is sandbagged by their lead singer, Chas Knopfler, into throwing the mother of all parties the night before they embark on a world tour. Eddie Mesmer, the rhythm guitarist, awakens to find his drummer, Toss Dunbar, hanging from a tree like a scarecrow, and the house completely destroyed. Eddie and Toss quickly realize that A: they can't remember anything and B: there's a dead guy in the pool. Now, they have to figure out what happened the night before or their Rock and Roll dream is over. Their only hope is State Dependent Learning, which is the scientifically proven fact that information learned while under the influence of a given "substance", can only be recalled and used to solve a task when you are in the same state. Or in Layman's terms... They have to drink to remember. The prior night's debauchery comes back to them as they get Halfway to a Blackout against insurmountable odds. Will Bad Math realize they're greater than the sum of their parts in time to keep their mostly-virgin asses from jail, and salvage their dream of rock superstardom? I'd tell you, but I'm out of Vodka. —Keith Brown
Press play and you've got an instant cult classic.
The best way to describe this movie is Spinal Tap vomited the Hangover in Almost Famous' mouth in front of some Airheads. I love rock and roll movies and this one delivered in spades. I love this movie! I've seen it probably five times and I have laughed out loud every single time. The acting is solid all across the board with each actor bringing something different whether it was the drummer's hilarity, the singer's arrogance masking real emotion, or the bassists sage advice they were all so fun to watch. There was plenty of eye candy too, but I could have used more boobs, though what they do instead of showing sex is one of the funniest things! Next time you're in the mood to just have a drink or a smoke and watch a fun flick this is for you and your friends, and their friends! I have already made a lot of people laugh quoting this flick. College kids everywhere pre-gaming on the weekend while watching this. Seriously, if you like fun, boobs, and blacking out you will love this! My only real complaint is that I would have loved to see the band play. Check this out! Must see!
