Watch 2 Funny Clips From Irish Comedy The Stag

the-stag

Stag Parties many are not for the faint of heart, debauchery, ridiculous things happen If you’ve been a best man like me you know what I mean. In Irish indie comedy The Stag which is out in UK cinemas from this Friday, the unexpected groom has no clue what’s about to happen then again nor do the part involved too!

Self-confessed metrosexual Fionan (Hugh O’Conor) doesn’t want a Stag Do, but would happily attend the Hen. His concerned bride-to-be Ruth (Amy Huberman) persuades the marginally more macho best man Davin (Andrew Scott) to organise one. Reluctantly he agrees, while doing everything he can to stop Ruth’s infamously alpha male brother, known only as ‘The Machine’ (Peter McDonald), gatecrashing their sober, walking-weekend, excuse for a Stag Party. Not so easily foxed, ‘The Machine’ tracks them down, sparking to life a wild few days in rural Ireland where the Stags find themselves lost, shot at, stoned and butt-naked.

The Stag is not your straight The Hangover type comedy so don’t expect outright crudeness  more humour but also a lot of heartfelt making the appeal of the film wider. This film was part of this years Glasgow Film Festival but unfortunately scheduling  made it impossible to watch the film,but we’ve only heard good things about it and that’s good enough for us to check this out.

Check out these 2 new clips….

Synopsis

Self-confessed metrosexual Fionan (Hugh O’Conor) doesn’t want a Stag Do, but would happily attend the Hen. His concerned bride-to-be Ruth (Amy Huberman) persuades the marginally more macho best man Davin (Andrew Scott) to organise one. Reluctantly he agrees, while doing everything he can to stop Ruth’s infamously alpha male brother, known only as ‘The Machine’ (Peter McDonald), gatecrashing their sober, walking-weekend, excuse for a Stag Party. Not so easily foxed, ‘The Machine’ tracks them down, sparking to life a wild few days in rural Ireland where the Stags find themselves lost, shot at, stoned and butt-naked. THE STAG is a hilarious and heart-warming journey of friendship, fear, male bonding, and tightly fashioned squirrel skin!

Award-winning writer/director John Butler (RTE’s award winning sketch show Your Bad Self, debut novel The Tenderloin) makes his feature directing debut with this hilarious and touching comedy about male friendship – developed and co-written with actor/writer Peter McDonald (I Went Down, When Brendan Met Trudy), and produced by Rebecca O’Flanagan and Rob Walpole (The Good Man).

The Stag arrive in UK Cinema From 14th March.
