Bachelor Party 2 has some major problems that prevent it from coming even three states close to the supremely funny 1984 classic. Let's start with the first problem: TIME! You don't wait 24 years, and say "Hey! I was thinking about writing a sequel to that real funny movie starring Tom Hanks." There, my friends and foes, is the next problem: The writer. Unlike the original Bacherlor Party, this movie is written by Neal Isreal, whereas Bachelor Party was written by Bob Isreal. Guess we know who the funny man is! Sorry, Neal, not saying you're not talented, but...you're not talented enough to be sharing titles like this. I would honestly have more respect for this film if it wasn't associated with Bachelor Party. There is our next problem: How does a film like this even compare to our beloved comedy classic? It obviously doesn't have the 80's atmosphere, simply because it wasn't made in the 80's. Bachelor Party had very bright, colorful, and fun themes...laced with just the right amount of profanity to keep it fresh in your memories for years to come. Bachelor Party 2 is just the opposite. It has dark tone to it, and there's not one scene worth remembering, making this a failed attempt to revamp "something that wasn't broken." Bachelor Party was fine the way it was, it didn't need a sequel then, and it sure didn't need it now. And, despite its very R rated genre, Bachelor Party had heart to it. A great guy getting married, and he was resisting temptation that lurked around every corner. Bachelor Party 2 has no great guys. It has no great story line. In fact, the plot is paper thin and absurd. A man is getting married to a woman, and his friends throw him a bachelor party, where he will be forced to give in or resist temptation. That's it? Yes, that's it, the rest of the film just revolves around sub plots that go nowhere, not to mention any excuse to get a woman fully or partially unclothed. The laughs are almost non existent. While the story line may not be all that great, the film isn't a total bust, because the dialog is actually not bad...too bad that blood, sweat, and tears couldn't be channeled into creating a better script. I wish I had more good things to say about this, but there is nothing but filler in this movie. The goods are on the original Bachelor Party. Check that one out if you want a great comedy. Bachlor Party 2 has half the confetti, half the laughs, and a whole lot of nothing to keep any party of any kind entertained. Thumbs down, Isreal...you should have known better.
