Movie Summary

Director:
Peter Berg
Released:
1998
Rating:
R
Very Bad Things is the original, better and more edgy treatment of the 'Hangover'-style escalation in covert male shenanigans. Featuring an all star cast of then and now stars, the story concerns the ultimate foiled bachelor party as a group of old friends get hip deep in trouble in a Las Vegas hotel when they order a hooker, accidentally kill her, chop up her corpse, bury it and make a pact not to tell anybody about what has transpired. From there, things get even worse as guilt gnaws at the conservative, do-gooder Adam (Daniel Stern, Home Alone, Bushwhacked, City Slickers, CHUD), prompting his desire to spill the beans about the incident despite the aggressive protest of slightly maniacal Robert (Christian Slater, Heathers, Kuffs, Tales from the Darkside The Movie, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves). Friendships and trusts are tested, people die in violent and grisly ways, and secrets are fought to be maintained by the group of buddies ' all while making sure soon to be married Kyle's (Jon Favreau) wedding goes off without a hitch.moreless

    Humorous slashings and car accidents constitute similar high points in a film that is glaringly short on ''Scream''-style self-mockery to match its dopey mayhem.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Hollow, simple-minded and about as profound an experience as stepping in a pile of road kill.
