Storyline

Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When the furious bride decides to take her Baja honeymoon solo, Nardo follows her-where the lovesick groom is carjacked and left stranded, naked and penniless in a remote part of the Mexican desert. Helpless, Nardo sends out an SOS to Jason and their pal Evan (Adam Pally), an up-and-coming ad exec slated for an important business meeting the next morning. During their ridiculous attempt to rescue Nardo, the trio embarks on a series of increasingly outrageous misadventures involving con artists, drug smugglers and even the Federales.

Evan: [paralyzed] Don't you usually take kidneys from the back?
Hugo: Yeah, that's how doctors do it. We go in the front, though. Just scoop everything out until we find the kidney, just rip that out, throw it in a cooler and we are outta here while you bleed out.

just awful
23 December 2014 | by za_neSee all my reviews

It really is not a good film, it's not even average. With just few laughs throughout the movie I went out disappointed. Not because of my expectations, not at all, but by the fact they thought this movie could actually work. Hangover-ish plot, extremely bad acting and forced dialogues. The black dude posing as Spaniard was one of the worst. I laughed couple of times but most of the time I was laughing in disbelief one could actually put something so crappy on screen. Why show a bare crotch? why use such lame lines? So many questions, so much money spent for nothing. All my bitterness aside- it had some really funny moments but they just couldn't save this movie.

3/10
