I stumbled across The Stag by accident, and what a pleasant surprise it is. If you like “British” comedies you will love this movie. I say “British” as in style of humour, this is actually a great Irish movie.
Five guys set out on a stag weekend walking in the mountains of Ireland. No one wants a sixth member “The Machine” to go with them as the guy is apparently a complete animal. But its his sisters wedding so they can not keep him away.
And they were right this guy is a serious nightmare of a train crash waiting to happen. without giving away the plot, as there actually isn’t much of one, this is a very very funny movie. The “Emperor penguins” scene is one of the funniest things I have seen in quite a while.
Loads of laughs, loads of good fun , and a cheesy ending that actually works very well. Great movie, find it if you can,
