Bachelor Party

( 2 )

Overview

While much is made about the gross-out content of the current crop of teen comedies, they pale in comparison to films like Bachelor Party, perhaps the raunchiest of all the '80s sex comedies. Now, 20th Century Fox allows viewers a glimpse at a bygone era with this DVD edition. The picture is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen fashion and looks quite good. Colors are rich and full, with very little degradation. Overall, the master print has held up well after nearly two decades. The sound is offered in ...

Overview

While much is made about the gross-out content of the current crop of teen comedies, they pale in comparison to films like Bachelor Party, perhaps the raunchiest of all the '80s sex comedies. Now, 20th Century Fox allows viewers a glimpse at a bygone era with this DVD edition. The picture is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen fashion and looks quite good. Colors are rich and full, with very little degradation. Overall, the master print has held up well after nearly two decades. The sound is offered in Dolby Digital 4.0 and does a decent job of conveying the raucous atmosphere of the titular party. The extras appear to be culled from an EPK from around the time of the film's release, and they're very much a product of the '80s in terms of their structure and use of music. On that level, they're rather amusing to watch, although they shed little light on the making of the film. Still, it's very interesting to watch a 27-year-old Tom Hanks joking with interviewers. Bachelor Party is worth owning on DVD, if only because it's something of a Rosetta stone of '80s excess.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Tom Hanks and his flippant party animal cohorts make Bachelor Party seem like a descendent of Animal House in its better moments. A bunch of self-satisfied guys going to great lengths in the pursuit of flesh and jubilant rule-breaking, all while winking to each other and laughing, give them a certain kinship to Otter, Bluto, Boon et al. But without the sublime comic performances and dialogue to keep things moving, Bachelor Party is more often a succession of puerile practical jokes with no bounds to their tastelessness. Even the bride's disapproving father gets gagged and dressed up in dominatrix attire, an outcome the film invites us to cheer. More legitimate levity comes from watching the ongoing tortures of Hanks' rival, the smarmy Robert Prescott, who gets dangled naked from buildings among other such embarrassments. Those expecting this type of lowbrow comic irreverence from beginning to end will probably have no problem with Bachelor Party. However, anyone curious about what Tom Hanks did before Philadelphia will undoubtedly grimace -- including Hanks himself.

    All-Time Classic

    This movie was a campy classic with plenty of laughs. This is one of my all-time favorite Tom Hank movies. Simple story line with gags an funny situations.
