‘I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell’ boring, not funny


Although I am a fan of the Tucker Max book, I wouldn’t recommend “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.” I don’t say this because I thought it degraded women, but rather because it was significantly toned down from the book.

Most of the more outlandish stories that the author mentions in his article (e.g. “Tucker tries buttsex, hilarity does not ensue”) were not even in the movie.

In fact, Tucker’s only sexual conquest in the movie is with a “midget stripper,” not a drunken college girl.

If you liked the book, it was because it was funny. Yes, it was also crude, vile and degrading to women, but still funny.

The movie, on the other hand, while having its moments of enjoyable dialogue, was slow, boring, and without the infamous Tucker Max material that people claim as a reason not to see the film. In short, buy the book and skip the movie.
