THE PLOT THUS FAR
A soon-to-be-married man’s friends throw him the ultimate bachelor party.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Bachelor Party” is a film that proves that Tom Hanks used to be an awesome dude. He’d bang mermaids, abuse cough medicine with the Keatons and then do a movie about a wild bachelor party. Everything that could go wrong does go wrong when Tom Hanks does everything from hiring a pill eating sex donkey to making his future mother-in-law grab the bare schlong of a male exotic dancer. Robert Prescott also shows up as the anti Zabka that tries to buy Tawny Kitaen away from Hanks. Do you remember the era when men would fight over Tawny Kitaen? I bet that she sure misses it.
I can forgive Adrian Zmed singing in the flick. But, there’s a lot of oddities surrounding the film, but it fits with the rest of Neal Israel’s work. I freaking miss comedies that used its R rating to just go weird as shit with it. People are trying to kill themselves, chicks are dancing half naked in stores, somebody’s about to bang a donkey and they even take the time to make jokes about 3D Movies. If you can’t throw the kitchen sink into your comedies, then you’re trying to appeal the worst kind of audience. Slack-jawed pieces of crap that think Ashton Kutcher played a convincing Steve Jobs. Those people belong to a special place in Hell. I’d like to call it iHell, that’s the place where everything goes that has been over processed.
The Blu-Ray comes with featurettes, trailer and interviews as the special features. The 1080p transfer is on par with the premium cable broadcasts I’ve seen. That being said, the finale at the cineplex pops bigger. The DTS-HD 1.0 master audio track is lossless. So, there’s that. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
