I felt this movie was trying too hard to be absurd, well, the lead character anyway. Gary, as played by Simon Pegg, is your "Peter Pan" wannabe who never has accomplished anything in life and is clinging to his glory years, as he sees them, and wants to get the gang together to complete the one thing they didn't all those years ago. Get to the end of the Golden Mile Pub Crawl. About 45min into the movie I was ready to punch Gary myself. As much as his friends grew up and moved into adulthood they seemingly never could say no to "King" Gary. The movie takes a bizarre twist in the second act and while there were a few good laughs I kept wishing I was watching Shaun of the Dead instead.
