  • Summary: A bachelor party weekend takes some unexpected detours in this hilarious and heartfelt Irish comedy, about a foppish groom-to-be (Hugh O'Conor) who reluctantly agrees to go on a camping trip before his nuptials. But when his fiancee's alpha-male brother, nicknamed "The Machine," unexpectedly turns up, all concepts of masculinity are challenged — and a leisurely weekend in the great outdoors takes a turn for the worse.

    At its best not in its scenes of men acting like children or the beats that feel more written than organic but in its most believable scenes of joyful, male friendship in between the broad humor and melodrama. I just wish there were more of them.

    The Stag is formulaic and schmaltzy, and its endless gay jokes jar with its warm-hearted message – but it coasts along on an undeniable likeability.

    This modest ladcom scores rather higher on the sincerity scale, much like a best man’s speech that fluffs the jokes but semi-accidentally gets a deep sense of friendship across.

    It’s impossible to hate a film where the cast is so game, but you may struggle to remember it the morning after.

    One or two set pieces don't quite have the requisite heft, yet the movie clicks whenever co-writer/director John Butler stops to admire the scenery.

    The Bachelor Weekend plays as expected: Characters must start close, bond during their trip, have their friendship momentarily threatened, then cathartically make up right on schedule.
