WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
A man and his three friends get the bachelor party of a lifetime when his fiancé’s friend takes them away for the party. Unbeknownst to the bachelor, his fiancé’s friend is actually trying to set him up to cheat for his own agenda.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
Right off the bat I have to criticize the film for using the “Bachelor” party name. I know this isn’t the first time the “Bachelor” party name has been burned, but it’s still annoying. Not that the original, Tom Hanks-starring film was great, but it was better than this garbage we’re getting. Clearly, this has cheap, B-movie written all over it and I’m here to say it doesn’t disappoint in that regard. The film quality is horrible and the dialogue induces a lot of eye-rolling.

It’s really one giant cliché after another. You have the geeky guy that eventually gets the girl, you have the father-friend preaching wisdom and of course there’s the wild and crazy guy that provides comic relief. All of which compliment the straight-laced bachelor just trying to have a good time. This take on the situation is no better or different than anything you’ve seen before at the movies or on TV. They don’t cross any lines or go anywhere you wouldn’t expect them to go.

The movie did stray a little bit from the bachelor party angle and started to feel more like a spring break film. For a while I thought I was watching a National Lampoon movie. I think the goal was to generate more excuses for gratuitous nudity, of which, there was plenty. Not enough nudity, but it definitely had its fair share.

I will say that even though the film is bad and unoriginal, it’s not excruciatingly horrible. There are some funny moments and areas that scenes that keep you interested. I especially liked Harland Williams’ monologue about marriage. It wasn’t anything we haven’t heard before, but I liked it in monologue form and it worked. However, the “good” scenes are few and far between and don’t make up for everything else we have to sit through.
THE EXTRAS
Commentary with Warren Christie, Greg Pitts, Harland Williams, Danny Jacobs, Josh Cooke and James Ryan: Before you even read this, you know there are way too many people involved with the commentary. As it turns out, it doesn’t matter because everyone involved knows this is a bad movie. In fact, they make up a drinking game that you can play along with. If you have nothing better to do, and want to get drunk in a creative way, then this commentary is for you.

Making of Bachelor Party 2 (10:04): Unlike the commentary, everyone here thinks the movie is good. It’s not. They try to convince us this is a retelling of the original, but I’m not seeing that. Other than that, it’s your typical making-of featurette.

Analysis of a Stripper Fight (6:59): This is pretty much the “actresses” involved with the stripper fight talking about the fight as it plays out onscreen. We’ve already sat through it once; we don’t really need to see it again.

Deleted Scenes (16:05): These were actually worse than the film, so there you go. Most of these are extra dialogue sequences so I wouldn’t bother with them.

Gag Reel and Gags (17:35): 17 minutes is a long time for a gag reel. There are actually moments here that are funnier than anything in the film. If you have to watch something on this disc, this is probably your best bet.

FINAL DIAGNOSIS
I guess if T&A filled B-movies are your thing, this might appeal to you. Otherwise, I can’t see a reason to recommend this to anyone. Just go rent Tom Hanks’ original and remember when.
