A really dumb movie -- but it did make me laugh

"I almost gave this movie four stars, despite the fact that it starts out stupid, moves quickly on to ridiculous, and eventually peaks at patently absurd. Despite all the movie's faults and shortcomings, though, I'm sitting here having flashbacks to certain scenes flit through my brain and thinking "that was pretty doggoned funny," especially some comments referring to Osama Bin Laden that I cannot quote here. Now maybe you're sitting there thinking that there have to be some hot women in this movie, but I want to caution you not to get your hopes up on that account. To my eyes, only one really stood out from the crowd (Diora Baird), but I don't really go for the showgirl type (Elizabeth Berkeley excepted, of course). Nudity? Nothing you haven't seen before, and not as much as you would expect from a film like this. Somehow achieving raunchiness without profligate nudity, Bachelor Party Vegas really is all about the comedy - and friendship, or so the movie would have you believe.
What you have here are four guys throwing their buddy the best bachelor party ever - which, according to the Bachelor Party rules, must take place in Vegas. It's quite a diverse group of best buds. First, there's the bachelor himself, Nathan (Jonathan Bennett), sort of your all-American type fellow. Then you have Z-Bob (Kal Penn), the designated ethnic character of seemingly Middle Eastern or Asian descent, who is most intent on the weekend being an unqualified success. From chubby parts unknown comes Johnny (Charlie Talbert), who just wants to have a good time - a goal that Ash (Donald Faison), an African-American, shares completely. Then there's Eli (Aaron Himelstein), the mystery player. It's never really clear why he is along for this ride - he's not family, he's younger and much more inexperienced than the others, and there's a good chance he actually takes a couple of nerd pills every morning.
Anyway, the guys couldn't be more excited when they arrive in Vegas to begin their wild party weekend. Despite a harrowing, rather disgusting ride into town, they think they've died and gone to heaven once they open the door to their penthouse room. This feeling doesn't last long, though, as the whole weekend quickly falls completely apart in about every way imaginable. Whenever they seem to escape from one mess, an even bigger one jumps out to drag them under. They have to stick together if they are to make it through this incredible series of misfortunes that threaten to do much more than put an end to Nathan's wedding plans.
Obviously, if you don't enjoy crude humor and general stupidity in your films, you'll definitely want to pass this one by. I don't think anyone would ever call this a good movie. However, it is pretty funny at times - and sometimes that's enough in and of itself."
It's a shame what people release thinking they can make a qu

"At a price of over [...] hard earned dollars this movie should be considered illegal. The plot is simple...a group of college guys travel to Vegas to throw a bachelor party for one of their friends. "Has Kal Penn and that guy from Scrubbs and some dude I think I remember from Mean Girls (if you saw it)....so it should be cool right?"...WRONG!! In this movie there is every cliche you can imagine...blow up dolls, fat women, gay dudes, etc, etc, etc. However, the jokes are pulled off so poorly that it really just makes you annoyed instead of making you laugh-and this is coming from someone who grew up watching Beavis and Butthead and loves teen comedies. I can't stress enough that this movie is just NOT funny. In terms of special features.. well there are none. This movie is as much a waste of money as any other straight to DVD release (such as Edison Force) that has a red sticker stating "New Feature Film" or something of that sort. The bottom line is this...AVOID!!"
Worth watching,but not a great film

"The only reason I enjoyed "Bachelor Party Vegas" is because I've been to Las Vegas so many times,and enjoyed the location of the film.There's alot of stupid scenes,but the movie does take you through an adventure these guys have,and Kathy Griffin is great as an Elvis thief.If you happen to come across this film on a boring night,check it out."
Aviod this waste of time

"This is not a good movie. The only thing I liked about it was the Las Vegas setting. Not worth the shipping cost much less the inflated price."
