Goofs

During the final scene when The Machine is singing One, his boutonnière appears to move from the left lapel to the right and back again. What is actually happening is the image was reversed in post-production, probably to make the direction the actor was looking match the other shots. Thus, not only does the boutonnière change sides, the pocket and handkerchief does, too (as well as the hand with which the actor holds the microphone). See more »

Quotes

Fionan: Yea. No. No way. No stags. Sorry.
Big Kevin: Fionan, have you ever even been on a stag?
Fionan: [nods his head, then hesitates] No.
Big Kevin: So not even a weekend walk?
Fionan: I don't enjoy being in exclusive male company for long periods. There's something forced about it. And false. All that banter. I just, I mean, under what other circumstances would we five ever agree to be in a tent, in the shitting rain, in mid November, all for the sake of some needless ritual?

User Reviews

 
Always rewarding to "discover" an enjoyable little indie film like this one.
9 December 2015 | by Instant_PalmerSee all my reviews

A nice find... The film starts off with a few cliché' (though tolerable) scenes, but once "The Machine" (Peter McDonald) enters the film, the movie sets off on its eccentric (and sometimes hilarious) adventure in the wood.

A feel good movie that has quite a few funny scenes, with just the right amount of sincere "sweet moments" thrown into the mix.

Compared to The Hangover series, The Bachelor Weekend is more believable and draws you into connecting with the characters.

A good film you may have missed!
