Overview

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.

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.
