A frustrated Allen begins to spin out of control during an eating and drinking binge, landing in more legal trouble. He’s arrested after a hilarious scene where he demolishes a Hammy the Bear beer display. Behind bars, he meets rapper DMX who gives him advice and sings very off-key.

His fiancée becomes very angry with him for almost ruining their wedding and her image. Her assistant comes to the rescue as she thinks of a plan to fix the situation. Allen goes to his Hammy the Bear themed bachelor party in an attempt to reconcile. Adam Sandler, Whoopi Goldberg and Jerry Seinfeld make appearances. Brown shows up later to apologize and surprises Allen by taking him to a comedy show at the place where he began his career – a moment that could reignite or crush his passion for comedy. At the end of the night be gets one more surprise as the film takes one more unexpected twist.

The film was very unique and did not have your typical cliché ending. It’s clear Rock put in a lot of time and effort as he strategically planned and placed each individual in this film. I loved it! On a scale from 1 to 5, I give this movie a 5.
