Review: Bachelor Party
Blu-ray & DVD: Bachelor Party (1984)
For those of you (like myself) who were old enough to watch Bachelor Party upon its original release (either at the cinema or on VHS), a rewatch of this Fabulous Films Blu-ray/DVD will bring back fond memories of that wild decade of the 80’s and the over the top movies that it spawned.
For everyone else, you’ll probably sit there with thoughts of ‘WTF is happening’ spinning through your head.
Bachelor Party is about as 80’s as a movie gets. So if you like a lot of cheese with your onscreen action, then be prepared to have it constantly shoved into your face.
At first shocked at this news, his friends come around to the idea when they realise that they can throw the mother of all bachelor parties.
Of course, things don’t go to plan.
The usual 80’s comedy tropes of ‘boyfriend not getting on with girlfriends dad’, ‘weedy nerd gets laid’, ‘all plans never go as planned’, and ‘gratuitous female nudity’ are all present and correct. Though ‘a donkey sniffing lines of cocaine’ is not something that you see very often.
A young Tom Hanks was still mostly associated with comedy roles at this point in his career, but there’s no doubting his acting chops and the bright future that lay before him. He plays Rick with a playful charm that is just the right side of not being an annoying twat.
Bachelor Party is definitely ‘of its age’ and may well not resonate with everyone, but for those who remember or have a fondness for the 80’s, this wacky comedy will have you laughing at the constant stream of outrageous situations that play out before you.
