'Bachelor Kisses' is a comic story of modern love and life when you're 20-something, single and male. It is the mess Jon Marshall makes of his life when it stops making sense - a comedy of fallibility and misjudgements. Jon, Rick and Jen share takeaway food rituals, sporadic cocktail nights and the quest for love. Rick seems destined to long, lonely nights beneath his Porky Pig doona. Jen consumes men like chocolate bars. And Jon gets lucky in a way he's never expected - more women than he knows how to handle. A medical graduate with grand plans for the hormone of darkness, he finds his life is spiralling way out of control.
As with all good comedy, 'Bachelor Kisses' includes the themes of science, death, inappropriate behaviour and injudicious intimacy. It's comedy, but it's not lightweight. It has a story, characters who are a lot like real people, and plenty to say about hamsters, rocket design, ambivalence, ambition and contemporary definitions of maleness.
