This ain't no Hangover
23 September 2017 | by smetinSee all my reviews

With such a vague synopsis I had no idea what this film was even about before I went to see it. The name "Big Bear" was about as informative as a tap dancing monkey too. I was drawn to it because I saw that Tyler Labine was in the bill and I love a lot of his work (stemming from his brilliant performance in the "Reaper" series from way back in the day!). So, did this film live up to my expectations? Well, yes in the respect to the fact that I had no expectations going into watching I film I had no idea as to its plot. No in respect to everything else.

Big Bear felt like a re-hash of the Hangover but it was darker and a lot less funny. The movie centres around Joe, who was due to marry his fiancé but she broke up with him prior to the bachelor party. We come in on the night of what was supposed to be the bachelor party. Despite his reluctance, Joe's friends (Labine and Co.) force him to have a fun night and we flash forward to the next morning when the are somewhat hungover. Unlike the original "Hangover" movie where the premise is to find a lost friend, "Big Bear" takes a darker route when Joe finds someone tied up in the basement thanks to one of his friends. I won't elude to any other plot points since I don't want to spoil anything, but I think I would have wanted to know these bare bones going in to watch it myself.

From this brief synopsis you can tell that this movie is going to have traditional and dark humour, which it does. There are some jokes that made me chuckle, but the vast majority fell quite flat. I tried to like this movie, because I do think Tyler Labine is one of the most under-rated actors today, but this movie was a bit disappointing. The characters were under-developed so we never got attached to any of them. Additionally, the plot was very one-dimensional and presented us with nothing original.

It's a shame, because even though I am not a film-maker, I could even come up with better plot and sub-plot points to make this movie more interesting. But, in its current state, I would personally give this movie a miss even though it has a short running time.
