Earning the type of divisive emotional responses normally reserved for those on the far right or the far left of the political spectrum, writer Tucker Max celebrated his debauchery-driven lifestyle in the memoir I HOPE THEY SERVE BEER IN HELL. Now Max earns credit as both co-screenwriter and producer of the film adaptation with this comedy from NIAGARA, NIAGARA director Bob Gosse. In the film, Tucker (GILMORE GIRLS' Matt Czuchry) behaves very badly at his friend's bachelor party, getting his invite to the nuptials revoked. Can he renounce his (not-so) inner selfish jerk in time to recapture his invitation' I HOPE THEY SERVE BEER IN HELL also stars Geoff Stults, Jesse Bradford, and Traci Lords.
