Tucker Max, the smug scribe of the bestseller "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell," was jeered tonight at a screening of the about-to-be-released movie based on his book. For those of you who haven't read it, "Beer" is all about the author's exploits with women, drinking, and being a jerk. (Max is played in the film by Manchester, N.H.-born actor Matthew Charles Czuchry.) At previous stops on his publicity tour, potesters have gathered to gripe about Max and his treatment of women. It was no different outside the AMC Harvard Square tonight, where Max's critics carried signs questioning his taste, integrity, and judgement. "They're half-retarded and everything they say and stand for is off-the-charts kooky," Max told us. "If I don't respect women and promote a rape culture, why do I have so many female fans? It doesn't make sense. I've sold a million books, and you don't sell a million books only selling to men."
