For as long as I can remember, blockbusters often come out in pairs... Two movies that are 'close enough' come…
Last fling, before the ring
Regan is used to being first at everything. Imagine her horror and chagrin when she finds out the girl everyone called Pig Face in high school is going to tie the knot before she does! But Regan sucks it up and takes on bridesmaid duties along with her childhood pals: substance-abusing, promiscuous Gena and ditzy Katie. The single ladies are determined to put their bitterness aside and have an awesomely hedonistic bachelorette party. Armed with acerbic wit and seemingly endless supplies of coke and booze, the foul-mouthed femmes embark on one very long and emotional night filled with major wedding-dress panic, various bodily fluids, and cute ex-boyfriends.
- These are a few of my favorite things.
Even though I can understand why people hate this so much, I don't think it's fair to compare it to Bridesmaids. Sure, both films have similar plots but they have wildly different intentions and varying levels of wit. I don't think Bachelorette is trying to make you feel the warm and fuzzies and it certainly doesn't go for widespread appeal. Instead, it seems like they are trying to appeal to people who have a dark sense of humor (HELLO: that's me) and may see a little bit of themselves in these hateful, despicable characters (Gena could be my skinny, white twin). So yeah... I love this. There isn't a ton of evidence to suggest it's a great film, but I love it.
Like Bridesmaids, but bad.
Leslye Headland’s mean-spirited black comedy is about three horrible bitches who act as bridesmaids for their old highschool friend. Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan all embrace their revolting characters but much like the trio of obnoxious friends, Bachelorette is almost impossible to warm to.
Rebel Wilson stars as the bride-to-be but she is quickly sidelined when her supposed friends upset her. The film then descends into a night of drugs and debauchery as the women wreck the wedding dress before joining the groom’s bachelor party. Although its caustic style makes a change from the typical bridesmaid-centred comedies the humour just isn’t funny. The horrible characters are simply that, meaning it is hard to either laugh at or with…
Earlier this year I proclaimed that Movie 43 was the worst comedy ever made. I may have spoken in haste because I had yet to see the abomination that is Bachelorette
Clearly trying to cash in on the popularity of Bridesmaids, this movie forgets why that movie was such a success it had heart and a host of likeable characters. Bachelorette has neither of these things, if anything it has the opposite of a heart, at its centre is a black hole.
This movie has two contenders for the most hate able characters in movie history. Katie (Isla Fisher) and Gena (Lizzy Caplan). Both characters spout off crude sex jokes every other line, the worst of all being Gena's foul…
This is a pretty great film. It's hilarious and down-to-earth, introducing you to a variety of characters, making you get a feel for who they are and then pulling you into their history and thoughts so that you get an understanding of who they are. It's great stuff and it makes complete sense that it's a play adapted into a film.
All the actors are spot-on in their performances, the comedy and situations are hilarious or poignant, the ending is awesome and yeah. I pretty much love it. It's a much more humane female comedy version of The Hangover, where the characters grow and change and you get to really understand them. Plus it's incredibly funny.
Terribly uninspired, and the three title characters were all horrible people (and not in an 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' kind of way). They were, I assume, supposed to be funny in a sarcastic way, but all they accomplished was highlighting the absolute worst characteristics found in a female friendship group. A shame, because such a great cast should have had better material to work with.
Not half bad, like a nastier, bitchyer version of Bridesmaids but with girls so insecure they became such bitches. Quite enjoyed this, would watch this with my girlfriends again
Funciona mejor si no lees la sinopsis antes de verla (cosa que yo hago siempre), ya que pasa exactamente eso y nada más. Me dejé engañar por el póster.
Es buena para pasar una noche tranquila con unas cuantas cervezas, por lo demás, olvidable al rato.
Por cierto, tiene de comedia negra lo que yo tengo de Michael Fassbender.
uuuummmm yeah okay this film is deeply flawed but every character is so unapologetically mean and i love that. the characters are scarily close to the people i grew up with.
I've definitely seen this, but I can't for the love of god remember anything from it.
No me gustan las comedias tontas basadas en la maldad de los protagonistas sin un propósito en ese comportamiento más haya de la broma. El contexto es el humor, no tanto la broma.
"I've been bewitched by vaginas before. It's scary, actually."
I tried to like it, I really did but wow, what a horrible film.
The three leads try their hardest to make it work but alas they can't.
It does make for an interesting watch as it's horrendously misogynistic but is written and directed by a woman (does thinking a woman can't be misogynistic make me a misogynist? I'm confused by this and therefore have another reason to dislike this film).
Kind of like a ladies version of the hangover in a way. It was ok. Not my cup of tea.
a film that helped me get to sleep. thank you film.
