Dead groom humor
28 June 2005 | by tobiasnanSee all my reviews

What happens if a women (bestseller krimi writer) decide to invite all her boyfriends, for a dinner, to choose a husband? All four knows that they become opponents, and to get the desired women they might hurt each other. I guessed this will be the outcome. But movie makers have a bigger fantasy. Claire, the heroine, (no not the drug) kills them one by one. Accidents happen all the time, but so fatal ones! So funny that hurts! Than the police arrives in the figure of the usual police duo: a small stupid, and the tall ice cold look detective. When the police left arrives the party, with all components of it: dancing men and women, most of them drunken, or in a deep depression. They find the dead grooms, but don't discover them. After the party comes to an end, the two robbers arrive. Than the detectives back.

The movie ends with a good outcome, you think. The dead bodies disappear and everybody goes home, police leave, ST as the robbers. But than comes the last twist the last joke not to forget the beginning.

So go to the video store and enjoy!
