Published on

Very Bad Things is a 1998 black comedy written and directed by Peter Berg. Starring Cameron Diaz and Christian Slater.

Very Bad Things Plot

When five buddies arrive in Las Vegas for some pre-wedding shenanigans, things quickly spiral out of control when the requisite prostitute falls victim to a grisly accident, igniting a spark in an already unstable powder keg of personalities. Following the lead of real estate agent and self-help guy Robert (Christian Slater), the men warily agree on a cover-up and covert desert burial. A couple hours and another corpse later, however, they’re already at each other’s throats, and their escalating breakdowns threaten to disrupt the highly prized wedding of hard-as-nails bride Laura (a stunning Cameron Diaz).

Movie Reviews

“Unlike genuinely amoral pics such as ‘Heathers’ or ‘Shallow Grave,’ it never seems really comfortable with its characters’ actions.” Derek Elley: Variety 

“A black comedy which is not as smart as it thinks (…) Rating: ??? (out of 5)” Kim Newman: Empire
