Movie Info

Tom Hanks stars in this raunchy teen comedy from veteran screenwriters Pat Proft and Neil Israel, who had previously collaborated on the amusing sketch film Tunnelvision (1976) and the disappointing Americathon (1980). Bus-driver Rick Gasko (Hanks) is engaged to wealthy Debbie Thompson (Tawny Kitaen), much to the chagrin of her father (George Grizzard), who considers Rick a loser. To keep an eye on her future groom, Debbie and her friends dress as prostitutes to attend his bachelor party, which quickly turns into a bacchanal of smutty debauchery. Familiar faces in the cast include action stars Michael Dudikoff and Ji-Tu Cimbuka, pin-ups Monique Gabrielle and Rosanne Katon, and teen-movie regulars Adrian Zmed and Wendie Jo Sperber. It's an occasionally hilarious excursion into bad taste, although one which two-time Oscar winner Hanks would probably like to forget.

    Pretty awful. No wait, check that: <i>plenty</i> awful. Unfunny raunchcom shenanigans, only Hanks' natural likability rescues this thing from the obscurity it deserves.

    Bachelor Party is a fun an entertaining movie, and this help with the friendship of Rick and his buddys. The film, stop of be so funny, just went the real party beggins. And on this point Bachelor Party, falling down. Rotten.

    The film is raunchy, discomforting at points, aswell unrealistic at points, takes too long to get to the body and is also, of course, original, decently-acted, extremely funny in situational and everyday humor and generally a riot of a time. It's a bumpy ride, but Tom Hanks' comedy classic "Bachelor Party" delivers the laughs and dumb fun.

    I know it's just a movie about some guys who have a wild bachelor party, but it's very funny, has good actors, and it's just enjoyable to watch when you're super bored. It's not a great movie, but I like it.
