Phil is a laid back partier type that can only see the positive side even in the most desperate situation. The brother-in-law is missing a few marbles and adds to some uneasy situational comedy and pulls off some classic lines. Stu is a dentist in a really nasty relationship. He’s a straight arrow type until he unleashes his wild-side with the fateful drink.
I can’t begin to describe how this movie just works without ruining it for you but all the preposterous twists and turns come off and the lines are priceless. The thing I loved about the movie was how the actors fit their characters so well that their performances seemed effortless. Don’t take my word for it, just have a look for yourself.
