Very Bad Things

The Good: 

The prostitute is played by real-life porn star Kobé Tai, which just makes the scene extra sweet and especially odd.

The Bad: 

The thought of Jeremy Piven having sex makes us throw up in our mouths a bit. Then again, whoever cast him as a hooker-killer knew what they were doing.

Very Bad Things


Could it get any worse is the question you’ll ask yourself after watching this unsung gem? Okay, picture this: you and your buddies leave for your bachelor party (you being Jon Favreau of Swingers fame). A harmless little adventure in Vegas that’s going great until your buddy (Jeremy Piven) hires a prostitute then accidentally kills her during some rough sex in the hotel bathroom. Well, the next step is pretty clear; someone needs to take charge and that someone is played all-too-convincingly by Christian Slater, who proceeds to kill the security guard after he unwittingly discovers said hooker.

Mayhem ensues including body burying, bridezillas (Cameron Diaz), and a few more deaths at the hands of these formerly best buddies.

Very Bad Things is a diamond in the rough that performed so poorly in theaters it didn’t even recoup the $10 million it cost to make the flick. But, trust us: seeing the comeuppance that befalls Cameron Diaz’s character at the end is worth the years of gleeful giggling torture she’s put us through over the years.

Bachelor10 Tip: 

Perhaps this is a lesson not to pay for nookie on your bachelor party weekend. Then again, if you do just make sure there are no sharp objects close by.
