5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest film with a donkey on drugs, 31 Jan 2003
This review is from: Bachelor Party [1984] [DVD] (DVD)
I can't believe that Tom Hanks doesn't make comedy any more, as he was brilliant in this and has excellent comic timing, which you'll get a lot of in this film.
This film really gets 5 stars for the set pieces, for example the (now legendary) donkey on cocaine and acid scene, the funny yet strangely embarassing musical numbers, and one scene involving crisps and beer which caused (through much rewinding and rewatching) my old video cassette to break. Trust me though, it's the funniest scene of all time.
Be warned though, the film does end on an inevitable note (It's the 80's, there are no suprise endings), the last 20 minutes don't do the film justice, and the film shouldn't really be watched sober. But if you want a film to watch with some mates after a night out, this is it.
There are some quality haircuts and fashions, not to mention a cast of nobodys, but Hanks shows that he's a star for the future. Also trivia fans Adrian Zmed (Hanks' co-star) was William Shatner's partner in the much derided cop show TJ Hooker.....How can you resist?
