Tucker Max’s hugely successful book I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell is having one of the hysterical stories from the book being turned into a movie that is out today! Tucker Max has been touring the country with the movie and on Monday the film had its Hollywood premiere and I was there to talk to him about it and see the hilarious Brovie!!! I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell is the story about 3 guy friends who take a road trip to a strip club for a makeshift bachelor party for one of them. Once they get to the strip club, one will find love, one will make it with a midget and one will get arrested and the hi-jinx don’t stop there. This movie is the perfect male bonding movie or as I like to call it Brovie as in Bro-movie. You know like Porky’s and The Hangover that every guy wants to experience, but most of them can only do it by watching it in on the big screen. I found myself laughing out loud several times and I am girl.
Matt Czuchry (The Good Wife) brilliantly plays Tucker Max and as the man himself told me, “In some ways he is a better me than me. He’s a lot more likable. He is a lot more demable. He’s like, you actually, kind of, maybe want to hang out with him in real life. Where I don’t know if you want to hang out with me in real life.” I think that is the best way to describe Tucker’s character in the movie. I was telling my friends, he is the type of guy you want to party with but you don’t want to be friends with. Does that make sense? It will when you see the movie. Jesse Bradford plays Drew who spews our bitter one liners that you know you shouldn’t be laughing at, but you can’t help yourself! He is such a sh!t, but so adorable being one! Then there is Geoff Stults (October Road) who is convinced by Tucker to go to the strip club and celebrate his upcoming nuptials and he has the craziest night of them all. I can’t tell you the scene, but there is one with him that will leave you totally squeamish, but the rest of them he is pretty much the straight guy to his two buddies.
Now when it comes to scenes…the ultimate scene that I am sure will be all over YouTube by Monday and will be talked about for years to come is “The sh!t scene”. Here is how Tucker described it, “‘The sh!t scene is definitely the most epic sh!t scene in movie history. I can promise you that. Whatever other flaws the movie may or may not have that scene nails it.” I am not going to tell you the details of the scene because you need to enjoy it by seeing it, but it is seriously the most epic sh!t scene in movie history. And I have to tell you knowing it was going to happen makes it even funnier. Because when the wheels are put into motion, you will start to laugh in anticipation of what you know is going to be going down. Let’s just say Van Wilder is now a distant second when it comes to sh!t scenes. Sincerely that moment in the movie is reason enough to see this Brovie, but there is so much more to enjoy. I think it will become a cult classic on DVD like Office Space, you know where guys will be inviting there buddies over for beer to watch I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell for years to come.
So what is next for Tucker Max? Hopefully working a sequel to this movie with one of the many other stories from his first book I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell. I say first book because he told me coming in February is his second book A$$holes Finish First. He said AFF is like IHTSBIH as in “short stories about the stupid sh!t I do when I drink.” So I had to ask him what was the stupidest thing he did when he was drunk and you will have to watch the interview above to hear what it was!!!
Now I have to say Tucker Max, when I asked him why I wouldn’t want to hang out with him, he told me it is because he is d!ck and I have to say after interviewing I don’t agree with him! So go out and see the movie that is loosely based on his crazy drinking antics and make sure to have a beer before and after you watch it!!!
Side note, I haven’t read the book but after seeing the movie I am so going to buy it!!!
