Critic Reviews for The Bachelor Party
The one thing that makes the pathos of it all endurable is the cheerfulness of the writer and the director in facing up to the ironies. That and the excellent performances all the actors give.
Unfortunately, I do not have enough space here to analyze the numerous other sociological lessons offered by this extremely rich film, whose mise-en-scene is brilliant at the same time as it appears to be "neutral."
Another TV luminary, Paddy Chayefsky, has written a worthy successor to his famous Marty, although it doesn't pack as much emotional appeal as its predecessor.
Semi-effective effort of writer Chayefsky and director Delbert Mann to repeat the success of their Oscar winning Marty, this melodrama is verbose and pretentious, though acting by Don Murray and Carolyn Jones is good.
Audience Reviews for The Bachelor Party
Selfish, reprehensible men do selfish, reprehensible things and the viewer is supposed to care. Good acting especially by Carolyn Jones in a standout part but impossible to warm up to. A lot of sound and fury adding up to absolutely zilch.
