A movie with zero vision and zero ambition. Adolescent humor that can only appeal to a 12 year old, this remarkably unfunny movie just sorta exists. Everyone is a caricature, the staging is two dimensional, and the script is garbage. Tom Hanks does what he can but can't save the ship from sinking. I actually never finished this but won't ever be bothering to do so again. If I missed anything substantial, let me know.
Tom Hanks and his goofy charisma are the only things keeping this movie alive. There are a couple funny things, but there are too many possibly good jokes ruined by a wrong cut, an unneeded shot, or just the wrong reaction. Also, that's gotta be one of the most boring parties ever put on film.
I don't believe in guilty pleasures, so I have no problem admitting that this is probably one of my favorite cheesy 80s flicks (if not THE favorite). Hilarious and has the best party ever. Sure, it has a bunch of idiots getting out of control, but that's kind of the point. Otherwise the film wouldn't be as wacky and ridiculous.
