"After the guys start sharing their bad experiences with wives and girlfriends, you start to feel for them. Yet you know the plot has to have some resolution. You know their bachelor party weekend has to end so Charlie Sheen can attend his wedding.
I won't spoil anything, but I must say the heartfelt resolution of the plot tugs at your heartstrings.
Women also will find the film very erotic. Who needs nudity ? I found the guys to be very sexy wearing their suits and ties. Fair - haired David Sherrill, who plays the part of the divorced Ray Vanowen, looks especially good in his suit and tie. I also like his acting. He convinced me that Ray's decision to live in an isolated trailer home was understandable.
If you live near Big Bear Lake or Lake Arrowhead, you'll be struck by the breathtaking location cinematography of that part of California. The mountainous scenery was mostly destroyed by fire several years later.
Please rent this movie. If you're a casting agent, please cast David Sherrill in something. Maybe Charlie Sheen can put him on an episode of Two And A Half Men.

"Five Aces is the kind of movie, which comes along only once in a milennia!!! The film is outstanding. Charlie Sheen is excellent as he portrays a man who is about to be married. His four best buddies from high school throw a pseudo bachelor party weekend for him in they're hometown. The group, known as the Five Aces, party on and try to convince Sheen that marriage can be a scary thing. As you can imagine, the Aces are a spry group who pull many comical pranks. They display the type of wacky hijinks that will have you laughing for days.
The group bonds with they're various heartbreak stories but are always there to lift a fellow Ace up when he's down. They get together to reminisce and have a karaoke scene which is one of the greatest scenes in the annals of film.
On a personal note, this film changed my life. I will always be grateful for the comedy stylings of the Five Aces. I can't recomend strongly enough that everyone should see this movie!"
