Once again playing a role unlike anything he wrote for himself before, Simon Pegg stars as a deadbeat drunk and drug addict whose life peaked in high school. Specifically, things never got better than the night he and five friends did a 12-pint pub-crawl across their hometown. Of course, they never finished it, and it’s one thing that’s always bothered the character through the years of failure that followed. For no particular reason, Pegg starts showing up at his former friends’ doorstep demanding they get the gang back together for round two. Since the former buddies are played by an all-star lineup of British comedy specialists and character actors in Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, and Martin Freeman they thankfully all agree.
