Why I Hope My Bachelor Party Can Live Up To the Best.

With my bachelor party coming up, it got me thinking, what are the best Bachelor Parties from all of cinema.

Honorable Mention

A Guy Thing (2003): Jason Lee is marrying a nervous woman who is not a good match for him at all. Things get complicated when he wakes up after his bachelor party with another woman, Julia Styles, who just so happens to be a cousin to his bride-to-be. This is a fun, cute, and lighter bachelor party film.

American Wedding (2003): There are tons of hilarious moments in the American Pie films. One of the best was when Stifler (Seann William Scott) throws Jim (Jason Biggs) a secret bachelor party on the same night and place where he's having dinner with his future in-laws. Naked woman and extreme awkwardness ensues.

Sideways (2004): This wasn't the biggest bachelor party ever, just Paul Giamatti taking best/only friend Thomas Haden Church to wine country before he marries into a well-to-do family. Virginia Madsen and Sandra Oh are perfect as women of interest and Alexander Payne's script is smart and engaging. This is a very good film.

5. Very Bad Things (1998): This Peter Berg directed film has a slew of stars, mostly before their prime. (Jon Favreau, Christian Slater, Jeremy Piven) These best friends all go to Vegas for a bachelor party, only to have a hooker get killed in the process. Some say the first half of this film inspired "The Hangover," but the second half fades badly. I may have even stopped watching 75% into the film.

4. The Best Man (1999): This film is packed with stars. (Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Nia Long, Harold Perrineau, Sanaa Lathan and Morris Chesnut) This entertaining film features everything you would want, drinking, fighting, girls and even a cat named Fandango. Worth checking out.

3. Clerks II (2006): Kevin Smith needed to make this sequel, even if it didn't come close to the original. His burger-flipping friends threw an epic bachelor party, donkey included. Rosario Dawson is fetching as the love interest and the Lord of the Rings-Star Wars argument is a classic comedic moment. A bestiality bachelor party, cant get better than that.

2. Bachelor Party (1984): This is what started it all. Tom Hanks is given one of the best bachelor parties ever. With his fiance’s ex trying to ruin everything and disappointed dad watching carefully, this film has it all. A she-male named Tim and a mule make an appearance in this hilarious and epic bachelor party film.

 1. The Hangover (2009): This film has forever changed bachelor parties and the expectations that come along with it. The absolutely hilarious film starring Bradley Cooper, Zack Galifinakis, Ed Helms and great support from Ken Jeong, Heather Graham and Mike Tyson, is the best ever. Almost every single moment is laugh out loud funny and this film propelled Galifinakis to new comedic heights. His performance rivals that of Anchorman and School of Rock.
