Blacksburg, VA — Tucker Max: sexist, womanizer, masochist, or just a funny asshole? For several years now, I have been following the… er, a… interesting tales of a man named Tucker Max. He has a detailed website with most of his stories online (www.tuckermax.com) for free, but the full stories are only available by purchasing his book, “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell”. Max claims that all of the stories are true accounts of his life. He even makes the point to say at the beginning of his book — if he is untruthful in recounting his stories , that he could be held accountable for libel and now even slander after a few interviews.
Max claims he is but one thing, and that is an asshole. He takes pride in getting drunk at the wrong times, saying the wrong things, and sleeping with the wrong girls.
When asked how many girls he has slept with Max answered, “… I’ve lost count.”
The questioner responded, “Triple digits?”
Max laughed manically, “What am I, 21?”
Reading his book was one of the funniest experiences I’ve ever had. Every chapter contained some gut busting material that stunned and amazed me. His stories are too crazy to make up, such as, “The Austin Road Trip”. “The Austin Road Trip” is the story used as the premise for his new movie which is based on the book. The book is a series of short stories and the movie puts these into an order and gives them a quasi-plot. The movie is being premiered in several cities before its release next month (September 25th). Max has chosen to produce the movie himself and is doing it the way he wants; to quote Max, “Fuck Hollywood.” Last night the movie was shown in Blacksburg, Virginia right outside the Virginia Tech campus. Max’s crowd is mostly, but certainly not limited to, college age students. His stories relate to everyone… well, everyone who doesn’t have a stick up their butt.
With the exception of the Kansas showing, every premier is sold out. If you aren’t fortunate enough to see the premier, the movie will be released nationwide. Because Tucker himself oversaw the movies making, it’s guaranteed to be a good laugh, as well as, teaching a good lesson thrown in there… somewhere… I think. Honestly, this movie is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. For the old folks, it’ll bring back memories from your past. For the younger crowd, it’ll help you remember last night before you passed out. It is a MUST see, so get off your ass you lazy fuck and go see the goddamn movie next month. Support of this movie will lead to a sexual sequel, which Tucker already has planned. Following the movie there was a Q and A and a meet-and-greet. Then there was an after party at one of the local bars which is where Tucker gets a lot of his new material.
The movies story is centered around Tucker and his two friends, Codenames: Slingblade and El Bingeroso. El Bingeroso is engaged to the b-e-a-utiful Kristy, and their wedding is scheduled for the end of the week. Tucker, always the trouble maker, plans a crazy bachelor party that will take them several hundred miles away from the “wedding planning” to a strip club. After getting excessively drunk and committing multiple illegal acts, El Bingeroso’s marriage is put to the test as his cognitively impaired brain tries desperately to keep him alive through the night. You had better bring a surgeon to this film because god knows your abdominals will be killing you from laughing so hard. Several times the screen became blurry from the lack of oxygen getting to my brain as I erupted in laughter.
WARNING: This movie is not for the weak of heart; socially prude; disgruntled bitches; or any other people who can’t take a joke.
Now, go buy the book, and brush up on your badassness (yes, it’s a word). Let me leave you with one final piece of mind, as you go throughout your days remember to ask yourself, “WWTD?” What, would Tucker Do?
