Editorial Reviews

The 1984 Tom Hanks sex comedy that had teenage boys everywhere fantasizing about Tawny Kitaen also had one of the best soundtracks of the '80s! Oingo Boingo's Something Isn't Right and Bachelor Party join American Beat '84 ; Fleshtones, and more!

Wow - I'd waited 19 years for this to come out on CD, having previously owned the Soundtrack on Vinyl. And I'm not disappointed!
This movie, whether or not Hanks likes it or not, is one of his best. A great party thrash it was the Grandfather to todays Teenage crude classics like American Pie and Road Trip. Comedy is the hardest thing to do well, and in Bachelor Party Hanks is just in a class of his own.
The soundtrack reminds you of so many great scenes within the movie, it brings a sentimental tear to the eye. It's less Pop and more of a rock-new wave thrash, which adds to it's lasting appeal perhaps. The highlights for me are Oingo Boingo's 'Something Isn't Right', The Alarm's 'What Kind Of Hell' and Darlene Love's 'Alley Oop' - but the whole album hangs together so well.
Adrian Zmed's little cameo reminds me of the sort of song you might hear at Karaoke parties! If you love the 80's, then do yourself a favour and get this little gem.

I loved this movie when it first came out, as it's a manic 90 minute romp through some of the most (for 1984) disgusting things ever tossed into a movie script.

Look at the cast: Tom Hanks at his most idiotic, Adrian Zmed (!) as the hunky model-type who peaked with "Grease 2" but has some great moments here as the best man, Tawny Kitaen at her HOTTEST (only the Whitesnake videos she made eclipse this), Wendie Jo Sperber as the eternally wonderful plump chick & foil, and a collection of the most obviously talented comedy sidekicks ever invented...

And then the soundtrack was quickly released by I.R.S. Records and promptly vanished.

Here it is almost twenty years later and a record label named "Superfecta" has re-released the wonderful soundtrack, but it falls short. I'll explain why later but here's a track by track review.

10 tracks breeze by at a little over 35 minutes:

1. The Fleshtones "American Beat '84" starts us off with the title track, a bit new-wavey, but has shades of pre-Huey Lewis and sets the tone quickly; this is a party album, pure and simple, so enjoy!

2. Oingo Boingo's "Something Isn't Right" is a quick rocker and as you probably already know Oingo Boingo used to be the greatest West Coast band in the late 70's/early 80's until leader & vocalist Danny Elfman disbanded it. This is not the doom-laden Tim Burton stuff some of you younger consumers are aware of, Danny used to have fun!

3. Jools Holland's "Crazy Over You" is another quick rocker but this also has the distinction of being a song from another artist who was in another influential band - the English ska/rock/pseudo-pop group Squeeze.

It took it almost 20 years to do it but it was worth the wait (I.R.S. Records never got this one out on CD). Bachelor Party must be one of the funiest movies of the 80's and it was the spark that ignited Tom Hanks' movie carrer. The songs on this CD can ONLY be found here and there are some hard to find songs by REM, The alarm and Oingo Boingo which die hard fans will be greatful that they are now on CD. My personal fav is Angel & the rerun's "Why do good girl like bad boys" since this song sends me back to the sceens where the party is at it's best. It only gets 4 stars because I find the Yip Yip Coyote song a little dull; other than that, get this CD you won't regret it.

When REM put out "Dead Letter Office" a series of b-sides they dared you to guess what soundtrack that song appeared on...does that make this a trivial album? Maybe. But for any hardcore Oingo Boingo fan this is a must have for the rare two tracks found only here.

This movie inspired director Kevin Smith in Clerks II to have a erotic donkey scene...yikes.
