THE BACHELOR WEEKEND

Directed by John Butler
FEATURE NARRATIVE 94 Minutes US Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE BACHELOR WEEKEND
A bachelor weekend among cordial friends goes haywire when the groom’s soon-to-be brother-in-law crashes the party and challenges their masculinity. Foppish groom-to-be Fionnan would much rather spend his last stag days obsessing over wedding plans than embark on a guys’ night out. Weary of his enthusiasm, Fionnan’s fiancé Ruth convinces his best man, Davin, to take him out for a weekend camping trip. But when Ruth’s alpha-male brother, aptly nicknamed ‘The Machine,’ arrives unannounced, the tame gathering quickly spirals out of control. Fionnan and his well-mannered friends find themselves at the mercy of The Machine’s crass antics as the trip turns into Fionnan’s worst nightmare. An R-rated slapstick-style comedy, The Bachelor Weekend pokes fun at ritualistic male bonding and embracing the great outdoors.
