During the final scene when The Machine is singing One, his boutonnière appears to move from the left lapel to the right and back again. What is actually happening is the image was reversed in post-production, probably to make the direction the actor was looking match the other shots. Thus, not only does the boutonnière change sides, the pocket and handkerchief does, too (as well as the hand with which the actor holds the microphone). See more »


Ruth: So what about hens in general? Or my hen? Such as some stupid needless ritual?
Fionan: Oh, er, no babe. I would happily go on your hen.
Ruth: You want to go on my hen?
Big Kevin: Okay Fionan. One of my favourite things to do is have sex with men. And even for me that's a bit too gay.

Bachelor Weekend
3 April 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Another title for this movie that is, which kind of describes what this is about. But some things cannot be put into words. And like with Hangover you do get the one character who is very much out of place. But without that character the movie would've (probably) been boring, so while you might not want to see him at first, you do realize, that he's necessary.

There are some really bad moments in this, but there are also some very funny ones. While you can see that this is going somewhere (no pun intended), it also stops from time to time (especially that one scene which puts this to a full stop - crucial scene, but there had to had been a better way to handle that). Other than that, pretty solid and decent effort. More drama than comedy though (unlike Hangover in case you started to compare those two)
