The event starts off with bikini-babe paintball game, moves on to a well-product-placed Golden Nugget casino, and then detours to a porn set, a giant tub of spaghetti, a warehouse, jail, and more. American Pie-style antics are rampant, though Harold and Kumar's Kal Penn is the only one of the boys you're likely to have ever seen before.
Here's the bottom line: Bachelor Party Vegas aims no higher than a Girls Gone Wild! video, and it basically hits that mark. This is not high art: Lin Shaye in vinyl and Kathy Griffin as a "she-Elvis" pretty much guarantees that. But its juvenile humor is surprisingly funny. Crass, yes, but I guffawed, out loud, more than a couple of times. Even my wife had a chuckle or two. That's not to say there's much here that will appeal to a mass audience or that you ought to consider renting it for that hot date, but if it's this or Red Shoe Diaries, I'd suggest going with Vegas.
