Rick Gassko is about to marry Debbie Thompson. Her parents hate him. Her old boyfriend hates him. They all have money and he gets a cut of the crap games on the Catholic school bus that he drives. His friends decide to give him the bachelor party of all bachelor parties in an expensive hotel with booze, adult movies and hookers. As the players catch wind of the elements of the party, each adds a little monkey wrench so that one set of hookers ends up giving demos at the bride's shower, the brides friends end up dressed as hookers in a room with a number of non English speaking Japanese businessmen, and so on, as things get out of hand.

During the party, Rick yells "Alligator!" and everybody drops to the floor and shakes around. A hooker dressed in purple gets up twice in two different shots. See more »

There is a lot of funny stuff in this movie as Tom Hanks plays part straight man and part traffic cop to the insanity that happens around him as a simple bachelor party swells and then degrades into a bacchanalic revelry. Let this movie serve as warning to anyone even THINKING of throwing a party as this seems to confirm Murphy's Law: If Anything Can Go Wrong, It Will. The movie has a great soundtrack and Adran Zmed really wails on "Little Demon" as the craziness occurs around him. Hanks' character, no matter how nuts he seems to act, turns out to be quite, sensitive and reserved as he hides in a corner and finally retreats to a back room as his buddies keep having the fun, but they keep dragging him back into it. For my tastes, Tawni Kitaen, now or then, is not much of a beauty, but Wendi Jo Sperber (Tom's Busom Buddies co-star) is also on hand as his sister-in-law. This movie does win the "Scary Movie" award for unnecessary sex jokes, but the scenes at the photo studio, the garage and the 3-D theatre are some of the funniest.
