Storyline

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.

Trivia

Near the end of the film at the movie theater, they are supposedly showing a marathon of 3D films. Some are actual theatrical 3D releases, but most are made up. Those that are real films are "House of Wax", "Dial M For Murder" and "Comin' At Ya". All the others are fake, which include "Syborg" (which could be a parody title for "Metalstorm"), "The Bug" (which is a probably a parody title for the real 3D movie "Parasite"), "Biloxi (spelled wrong as "Boulxi") Blood Bath", "Chainsaw Child", "Hell House", "Battle For Berkeley", "Bat Beast", "Zenobia", "Pedestrian Bondage", "Glendale Girls Go Berserk", "Zulu", "Watts Wilderness", "Richard III", "Death Cult Bar-Mitsfa" and "Sioux City". There are a bunch of other titles on the right side marquee, but they are hard to read. See more »

Goofs

There are several scenes in which a key is not used to open the door to Room 1002, yet the hotel manager has to use his key at the end. See more »

One of Tom Hanks' Best !
4 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
