Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Even Tom Hanks had to start somewhere, and this lame comedy is one of his earliest works. That is its only attribute.

Forgettable Tom Hanks comedy made early on.

Even with the proverbial Hanks charm, Bachelor Party constantly struggles in it shallowness.

To his credit Hanks behaves throughout as though he's actually in a worthwhile movie.

A smash hit teeny-bopper movie that proves again there is no accounting for taste.

This is tiresome, irksome and inexcusably sexist.

"Bachelor Party" has some great moments and qualifies as a raunchy, scummy, grungy Blotto Bluto memorial.

Bachelor Party has energy to spare, plus there are some really funny supporting performances hidden within, should you care enough to dig that deeply.
