Synopsis


Bachelor Party
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. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

    This outrageously funny look at one man's final moments of bachelorhood stars Tom Hanks as Rick, reluctant recipient of a bachelor bash given by a group of friends who view partying as their full-time religion. Rick's worried fiancée, Debbie (Tawny Kitaen), dresses up in disguise and crashes the party to spy on her future husband. To complicate the night further, Debbie's father hires her ex-boyfriend to win back his daughter. It turns out to be an evening the soon-to-be bride and groom will never forget.

    A "Lost" Classic

    It's not really a LOST "lost classic", but you don't ever really think of it when you think of 80s movies from this genre. If you do, it's usually in a "Oh, YEAH, Bachelor Party!" kind of way. That's a shame. Although I don't feel too bad - the lead actor has star written all over him and I'm sure he had other good roles after this one.

    Tom Hanks Early Classic

    Tom Hanks is at his early best, free and at ease, leading this gang of misfits through a wild evening. There is equal opportunity debauchery but a genuine connection of love about a man who can still have childlike feelings about life yet understand what commitment means in the crazy world they live in.

    If you could have a bachelor party half as fun as this movie depicts, you just may not get married. Tom Hanks cut his teeth in comedy and this film shows how he can do it oh so well, so here you can judge him on more than just his oscar worthy performances.

    A Tom Hanks Classic 80's comic hit!

    Great comic character development in an instant zany comedy classic. This is the comic prelude for Hanks' BIG which followed four years later. Look for the plot similarities to an earlier fun-filled comedy, "What's New Pussycat"

    One of the cult comedy classics of the 1980's is now on Blu-ray. Tom Hanks and the very hot Tawny Kitaen star. Picked it up when it was on sale for $4.99. The picture quality is OK, not great, but can't complain for the price.

    Was pretty good but had none of the charm of other superior classics like Revenge of the Nerds or Porkys. Just not interesting or involving enough of a story and i found myself bored in many sections. Would not recommend

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
