Bachelor Party

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, Barbara Stuart, Robert Prescott, George Grizzard, Tom Hanks
  • Director: Neal Israel
  • Writer: Neal Israel
  • Producer: Bob Israel, Ron Moler
  • 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.
