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 (1953), Dial M for Murder (1954) and Comin' at Ya! (1981). All the others are fake, which include "Syborg" (which could be a parody title for Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn (1983)), "The Bug" (which is a probably a parody title for the real 3D movie Parasite (1982)), "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-Mitsva" and "Sioux City". There are a bunch of other titles on the right side marquee, but they are hard to read. See more »

Goofs

When Tawny Kitaen enters the party in disguise, she's wearing a blonde wig. When Tom Hanks has her in the bedroom, she pulls the wig off and her brunette hair is straight. In the next scene as she's leaving in a huff, her face is very heavily made up and her hair is curly. See more »

Quotes

Rick Gassko: Attention, passengers, we are now leaving Nun Central and are beginning our journey to Hell and beyond. The captain has turned off the "no smoking" sign, and you may now move about the cabin freely.
[Kids start screaming, reading Playboy, and gambling]
Rick Gassko: Thank you for being Catholic, and for choosing the Saint Gabriel's School Bus.

Tom Hanks in 'funny' shocker!
14 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

Bachelor Party has few redeeming features, but it does have one big one: it's funny. Tom Hanks is about to get married, and his friends throw him one big bachelor party. Naked women, large amounts of drinking and a donkey getting high all follow.

Of course, someone wants to ruin the fun, in the form of Hank's bride-to-be father. Naturally, all of his plans to ruin the party are foiled by the motley crew.

Most of the gags in Bachelor Party are tasteless, but that's half of the fun. Not really recommended to devout Christians, but those with open minds will either find this film infectiously silly, or just stupid. It's a nice reminder of what film makers could get away with in the 80's, though. American Pie, it's nearest competitor, is too glossy and slick to be a proper Hollywood soft porn flick. It also has too much of a heart. Bachelor Party just piles on the dirtiness, and throws in a moral at the end, which is the way all 'Porky's' copies should be made (although Party is more fun than Porkys.)
