Bachelor Party

About

Hanks is the stag, devoted to bride-to-be Kitaen, who has to negotiate the extreme party his mates have arranged for him, with booze, drugs, porn and hookers a-go-go. This comes from the National Lampoon school of humour, and there are plenty of apologists for this kind of puerile nonsense. But with T and A flashed at any excuse, this is tiresome, irksome and inexcusably sexist.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Tawny Kitaen, Adrian Zmed, George Grizzard, Tom Hanks, Barbara Stuart, Robert Prescott
  • Director: Neal Israel
  • Writer: Neal Israel
  • Producer: Ron Moler, Bob Israel
  • Photographer: Hal Trussell

In a nutshell

Hanks had already proved himself a gifted comic actor in Splash! and would go on to be terrific in Big, but his choice of material here is questionable, and it weighs him down.
