Storyline

A rag tag band of idiots on the verge of signing a recording contract is sandbagged by their lead singer, Chas Knopfler, into throwing the mother of all parties the night before they embark on a world tour. Eddie Mesmer, the rhythm guitarist, awakens to find his drummer, Toss Dunbar, hanging from a tree like a scarecrow, and the house completely destroyed. Eddie and Toss quickly realize that A: they can't remember anything and B: there's a dead guy in the pool. Now, they have to figure out what happened the night before or their Rock and Roll dream is over. Their only hope is State Dependent Learning, which is the scientifically proven fact that information learned while under the influence of a given "substance", can only be recalled and used to solve a task when you are in the same state. Or in Layman's terms... They have to drink to remember. The prior night's debauchery comes back to them as they get Halfway to a Blackout against insurmountable odds. Will Bad Math realize they're ... Written by Keith Brown

Meegs loves this.
27 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Grab your friends on a Saturday night and rent this. Guaranteed laughs. My guy friends could not stop quoting this. So many great characters and lines to remember.

Hot guys, I agree with Paula's review about the hip bones. I could live without the vomit too. But then again, I'm a girl. Super beautiful girls! Each one is totally different. Make up and hair is unreal! I also love the styling.

I think the acting is amazing. The drummer is ridiculous. I hope to see him in more films. I'm now a huge fan of his. Actually all the guys performances were super strong. All in all an awesome comedy. I feel a cult classic for sure.
