5. Bachelor Party (1984)
Chances of getting laid (1-10): 10. When the bridal shower and the bachelor party ultimately collide, it turns into one big drunken orgy.
The drink situation (1-10): 10. You know the drinks and drugs are strong when a cocaine-snorting donkey bites it.

How’s the music? (1-10): 8. Oingo Boingo, Wang Chung, The Police, and The Fleshtones? Hell yes.
Oh, how we wish Tom Hanks would go back to doing some of the comedy roles that defined his early Hollywood career. Don’t get us wrong, we love the dramatic, highly-skilled actor that Hanks has become, but it’s classic films like Bachelor Party, The Money Pit, and Joe Versus The Volcano that we’ll continue to watch over and over for generations to come.
Hanks’ performance as party animal Rick Gassko in Neal Israel’s 1984 comedy Bachelor Party might just be his most fun and out of control performance. When Gassko finally decides to settle down and marry Debbie Thompson (Tawny Kitaen), his friends decide to throw him the greatest bachelor party of all time. Debbie’s not exactly thrilled, but she’s getting a bridal shower too and, eventually, the two parties end up exploding into one big, wild, drunken orgy.
There are strippers and drinking and heavy drugs and a white donkey that not only snorts cocaine, but actually overdoses on it. You see, donkey, this is why we can’t have nice things!
