Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Fionan: Yea. No. No way. No stags. Sorry.
Big Kevin: Fionan, have you ever even been on a stag?
Fionan: [nods his head, then hesitates] No.
Big Kevin: So not even a weekend walk?
Fionan: I don't enjoy being in exclusive male company for long periods. There's something forced about it. And false. All that banter. I just, I mean, under what other circumstances would we five ever agree to be in a tent, in the shitting rain, in mid November, all for the sake of some needless ritual?

My girlfriends and I were so excited to see this movie, thinking it was going to be a fun movie. Characters start to make bad decisions and one thing leads to another and so on. You get the idea. The Stag will either surprise or disappoint you, depending on what your expectations are. Still, it's a film BOTH genders can enjoy, and it shouldn't be limited to "a movie for the ladies." In the end, what the audience gets is a casserole of movie elements and little of the satisfaction that comes from watching these types of movies. The sound editing was weird to me. The main plot of the film was constantly being interrupted. Don't make a mistake of watching this film if you have any self respect.
