Very Bad Things

k I know that all of you have probably seen the tv trailers for this movie and possibly thought that this movie has some chance at being decent. Well those trailers are entirely too misleading. This movie stinks.
The premise is as follows:
Kyle Fisher (Jon Favreau - Swingers) and Laura Garrety (Cameron Diaz - The Mask, My Best Friends Wedding) are getting married. Well Laura is well one would say....stressed to the max. She is a bit perturbed on top of this that Kyle is having his bachelor party that night in Las Vegas. She objects to his friends and tells him to lose those friends because they don't fit into the "big picture". Well lose them he will.
So the trip to Vegas begins. Adam and Michael Berklow (played by Daniel Stern (Home Alone) and Jeremy Piven), along with Robert Boyd (Christian Slater Many movies including Robing Hood Prince of Thieves, Lost Boys, Jullian Poe, Interview with a Vampire), and Charles Moore (Leland Orser) constitute this group of friends that Laura can't stand. Well eventually they make it to Vegas. After lots of gambling, drinking, smoking pot, and cocaine, Boyd's stripper/prostitute friend, whom he called personally so the agency doesn't know she is there, shows up.
Well she gives old Kyle a nice little lap dance and then Michael decides it is time for him to get a ride. So he takes her into the bathroom and starts to do whatever. Unfortunately accidents do occur and the prostitute ends up implaed by a towel hook.
Panic time. Should they call the police, or just bury her in the dessert? Well guess what they decided to bury her. But just as everything is about to be ok hotel security shows up. Seems though the boys were making way too much noise. Well guess what he finds the body ends up dead and now they have two bodies. So they chop them up and bury them.
Now this is where the trailer kinda stops. You see all the info I gave you there you could have easily gathered from the trailer. Well from here on out the movie just slowly drags along as we get to see how well Slater can play a psycho. Slowly the cast gets killed off one by one.
Perhaps the only really funny seen is the one that made me quiver. Slater and Jeanne Tripplehorn (Basic Instinct, Waterworld, The Firm) get into a bit of squirmish and she bites him in a very sensitive area. Oh just so you know Tripplehorn plays Adam's (Stern's) wife.
Basically this movie was terrrible. Do not go to see it. Please stay away from it. Peter Berg in his freshman debut as a director/writer needs to rework his thinking style and maybe come up with a brain. Please no more trash like this.
