I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell is yet another sophomoric comedy with occasional T&A. This is a somewhat amusing movie if you are a teen boy or a current member of a fraternity and hate all women. I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell is a misogynist diatribe desperately trying to hide as a comedy. Unlike most movies in this category, the writing and acting here are pretty decent. This is supposedly based on a true story and adapted from the novel.
I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell follows Drew, Tucker, and soon to be married Dan on a trip to a strip club. Drew found his girlfriend blowing a rapper so he is particularly bitter. Tucker is a somewhat funny, extremely sexist, smart-mouthed Romeo who nails everything. Dan is the nice guy. The guys spew more sexist comments before splitting up.
The one somewhat funny scene in this movie is when Drew exchanges barbs with one of the strippers and she gets the best of him. The stripper announcements are also kind of funny.
Drew gets to redeem himself in a scene that also includes going to the hooker/stripper with a heart of gold’s place to play Halo.
The second half of this sexist comedy deals with the aftermath of the bachelor party. Tucker hasn’t learned anything so he must. This involves a long and very graphic poop joke. I just wonder where he kept his keycard.
There is little here to recommend this movie to anyone aside from saying it is not the worst such movie I have seen.

- 57A better comedy that its directors believed and that explains the toilet humor.
- 56Decent comedy by the Wayans, who would have thunk it?
