Our Score
Take a comedy of errors, toss in some soap-opera crises and lace with innuendo, and the result is this glorified British sitcom about an eventful stag night. The ensemble cast gives it everything, but the characters feel like dismally uncool outcasts from This Life, with each infantile, groin-motivated male trying to squirm out of (or wriggle into) the affections of their marginally more mature female counterparts. Skeletons fall out of the cupboard with alarming regularity, but the brash self-obsession of the revellers makes it difficult to warm to Rami Dvir's film.


An all-day stag do descends into deceit and confusion when the groom-to-be gets a bad case of cold feet, unaware his envious friend is plotting his downfall anyway. Chaos ensues as members of the wedding party engage in double-dealing and back-stabbing - all in the name of lust. Incompetent comedy, with the dismal script only compounded by bad acting from stars including James Purefoy, Tony Slattery, Neil Stuke and ex-EastEnder Leslie Grantham.
