I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, a Tucker Max Story

Carole McFaddan

“My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging d*ckhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way. I share my adventures with the world. They are known as: The Tucker Max Stories”

According to the promotional website, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, the movie, is the story of an impromptu bachelor party gone horribly awry thanks to a midget. A tireless and charismatic novelty seeker, Tucker (Matt Czuchry) tricks his buddy Dan (Geoff Stults) into lying to his fiancée so they can go on a legendary strip club across Texas to celebrate Dan’s last days in proper style. Tucker drags their misanthropic friend Drew (Jesse Bradford) along for the ride, and before they know it Dan is in serious trouble with both the law and his future wife. The blowout leaves Tucker uninvited to the wedding. If he wants back in, he’ll have to find a way to balance the demands of friendship with his own narcissism and selfishness.

I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, Tucker Max’s best-selling comedic journal of true adventures hit a select twenty-five theatres this past weekend, one of which was our very own Bow Tie Cinemas in New Haven on Temple Ave.

This film was great for adventurous males and the women that love them. Through the adventures, lies, and more carnal knowledge than was ever needed in an hour and a half, the true comedy was wielded as if it were standup. Now for the women who question the sexist outpour of trash talk and skillfully wielded mating calls from Max: fear for our standing as women, despite anything you might see in the film.

For those of you that aren’t fans of Tucker Max yet, all of his adventures are true and posted for the world to know on his website www.TuckerMax.com. His first book I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell made success as a book and a movie, and we can only hope the same happens when his second hits shelves later this year.
