Critic Reviews for The Bachelor Party

All Critics (2)

Semi-effective effort of writer Chayefsky and director Delbert Mann to repeat the success of their Oscar winning Marty, this melodrama is verbose and pretentious, though acting by Don Murray and Carolyn Jones is good.

This bachelor party is as much fun as riding the NYC subway late at night without a cop in sight.

Audience Reviews for The Bachelor Party

½

Selfish, reprehensible men do selfish, reprehensible things and the viewer is supposed to care. Good acting especially by Carolyn Jones in a standout part but impossible to warm up to. A lot of sound and fury adding up to absolutely zilch.
