Life is Not Over for Bachelors, A Movie Review


By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

To be released on VOD and DVD on August 16th.

The movie Bachelors (formerly titled The Night Before) is a well-meaning tale about Aaron (Colin Egglesfield), a young self-styled Casanova, who thinks he can continue his single but swinging lifestyle without consequences. When his best friend Sean (Drew Fuller) is ready to tie the knot, Aaron hopes to rescue him by having a bachelor party to remind him about all that is great about being a free wheeler. However, the night is not about debauchery. In Aaron’s opening narrative, he reveals how much he adores Kayla (Anna Hutchison), a lady he recently met. The feelings they have for each other is starting to bubble in a good way and the real plot centres around this boy’s insecurities.

This narrative takes a side step when Aaron is preparing for a night of fun for Sean. Together, with old school mates — Floyd (Chris Owen), Harold (Kirk Zipfel), Stanley (Gary Owen), Jesse (Joel Rush), Gus (David Faustino) and Miles (Brian White) — reuniting to indulge in a bit of pleasure, the night is going to be eye-opening in more ways than one.

Harold and Stanley were less developed as characters.
