Bachelorette

On the night before an old friend's wedding, three frisky bridesmaids go searching for a little fun but find much more than they bargained for. With lovely Becky (Rebel Wilson) set to marry her handsome sweetheart, Dale (Hayes MacArthur), the remaining members of her high school clique reunite for one last bachelorette bacchanal in the Big Apple. Regan (Kirsten Dunst) is an overachieving, uber-Maid of Honor who's secretly smarting over the fact that she's not the first to marry, while Gena (Lizzy Caplan) is a whip smart sarcastic who's actually a closet romantic, and Katie (Isla Fisher) is a ditzy beauty who loves the good life. But when Becky insists on keeping the bachelorette party tame, the women proceed with an after-hours celebration of their own. Things get very wild very quickly, sending the unholy trinity careening across Manhattan with a torn wedding dress in tow, bum-rushing a dry cleaner's, charming their way into a shuttered tailor's, and crashing Dale's bachelor party. It's there that Regan meets her match in white-collar hedonist Trevor (James Marsden), Katie gets pursued by former classmate, Joe (Kyle Bornheimer) and Gena finds herself drawn to old flame Clyde (Adam Scott). Will the girls get through the night alive? Can they fix the dress, be there for Becky, and get to the ceremony on time? Time is ticking away, but the bachelorettes are only getting started in what proves to be a life changing weekend they will never forget.

After the huge (and ehm shocking) success of Bridesmaids last year, somehow making a movie filled with bridesmaids-gone-wild aspect is a golden rule in Hollywood nowadays. The girls now wanting to overcome the boys (as crazy-in-Vegas things in Todd Phillip's Hangover). Leslye Headland followed the recipe : a gang of frenemies and envious bitches getting crazy and wild at their bestfriend's bachelorette party, ruining things, having sex, misbehaved, doing cocaine, drinking, stealing, breaking, you name it. Bachelorette is full with dark&dirty mockery jokes, along with countless stupidity and sarcasm. 

 

I won't write the storyline again, cause the synopsis above has already represented the whole story. But, I would like to comment on various things. First is the plot; it's so freaking slow, boring, and confusing. I mean, what's the meaning of the story, to be precised? What's the intention : the dress or the perfect-pair?! Where'll the story go? The story is very much jumping from side to side, telling nothing but the definition of blowjob and bullimia. Second is what truly bothers me : the places. The scenes pretty much take place in 3 places : dry cleaner, seamstress and strip club. Could anything get worse? Yes, it could; the casts. Rebel Wilson can be considered only as a bride-in-a-semen-full-wedding-gown cameo, while Isla Fisher only appears as a dumb redhead, nothing but pretty face and her huge interest on partying. Then there's Lizzy Caplan; she offers nothing but sex, kinky ex-girlfriend appearance and horrible lifeline. The one that appears better than the rest of them is Kirsten Dunst, though I can't say she's good at playing Regan; she's just another thin, envious and two-faced queen bee pretend to be best friend with an underdog. 


Bottom line, do Bachelorette can compete with Bridesmaids? Hell no! Do I recommend you to watch this? I can't tell, but I would prefer not to. Unless, you seek something called as wild fat jokes.


Becky : "This is all fucked up. I'm gonna walk in wearing my pajamas like I'm fucking Michael Jackson."
