So, what's wrong with this picture? Sure, the original Bachelor Party was a solid comedy, that featured a good enough Tom Hanks before he got too popular and famous for his own good. I even remember a few lines and scenes from that movie, more than I can say for many of the other mindless comedies from that era.
But I can't possibly be the target audience for this film, can I? They've got to be targeting a younger audience, no?
So why set this up as a "sequel to the 80's film?" Those who saw that one will be unlikely to see this one, and those in this film's target demographic will be unlikely to have ever even heard of the original, let alone be familiar with it.
It will be interesting if this remains positioned as a "sequel" if the film actually ends up going into production, or if the "market research" indicates a new name might serve it better.
But as far as I'm concerned, the only reason this would be worth viewing as a sequel is if Tawny Kitaen is back, too!
