Watch Trailer For Comedy Film ‘Stag’ Toplining Donald Faison

Watch Trailer For Comedy Film 'Stag' Toplining Donald Faison

I suppose there are people out there who find Donald Faison funny in that sort of geeky, nerdy and goofy sort of way. I fail to see it. Maybe he’s an acquired taste.

But if you’re a fan of his, then check out this trailer for his new comedy film, Stag, written and directed by Brett Heard, which looks more a straight-to-DVD release than a theatrical one.

In the film Faison plays ordinary guy Ken Andrews who, as Heard himself as written for the synopsis, “has been the orchestrator of the hazing pranks at all of his buddies’ stags – elaborate, hilarious pranks that have left many emotional scars and a few physical ones. And now today is Ken’s stag! He nervously awaits the fate that his pals surely have in store for him, comforted only by the knowledge that Carl, his friend, will be there to watch his back. That is, so long as Carl can extract himself from the Hollywood celebrity he’s met up with, Ken will soon discover that payback is worse than he could ever imagine.”

Here’s the trailer:

I think I smell a 2013 Razz trifecta for worst film,worst acting, and worst direction.


With the right people behind it, maybe it wouldn't have a direct-to-video vibe. It has a similar sense of humor to a lot of Frat Pack movies and movies like "The Hangover". It's missing the budget and 'the charm' of those films. Please note I put charm in quotation marks. There are a lot people that love that style and make those movies big blockbusters. Those films certainly aren't without their merits just not always my cup of tea.
