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.
The poor man's Bridesmaids. But like, poorer than poor. This is that one homeless guy who pees on cats and steals your half-eaten donuts from the trash's Bridesmaids.
Bachelorette is the sort of Bridesmaids cash-in that we expected after the success of Paul Feig's movie. This one however has a touch of The Hangover in its tone as the bachelorette party planned for the bride goes pear-shaped in a hurry.
Rebel Wilson plays the "fat-friend" (a truly horrible expression) who's found true love and is the first of four school-friends to tie the knot. Simmering jealousy, old scores, and the underlying hangups of all three bridesmaids come bubbling to the surface as they prepare the night before the wedding. Featuring the comedic talents of Rebel Wilson and Isla Fisher, and the bitchiness in abundance of both Kirsten Dunst's and Lizzy Caplan's characters, this unfortunately has more misses than…
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…
GENA BROUGHT CO CAAAIIINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I only watched this movie because It was on my watch list on Netflix and was going back and forth on what to watch and I dont know why this was on my watch list because this was tough to sit through.
This is basically another one of those comedy films where the characters act like annoying and unlikeable children who dont take the situation serisoulsy especially Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan. I did not want to laugh at their dialogue or any thing they where doing I just wanted to tell them to grow up. The film expects you sympathise for these people and with that I say Noooooo.
Give credit where its due it is well made for a movie with a budget this small and the scenes between Rebel Wilson and Kirsten Dunst are nice and a little more of those scenes would have made the film a little bit more bearable.
Película que solo existe para intentar aprovechar el éxito de "Bridesmaids".
Todos sus personajes son horrendos, menos quizás el de Rebel Wilson. Y digo quizás porque bueno, ella es amiga y conocida del resto de los demás personajes.
Bueno no, también está el personaje de Kyle Bornheimer, que es un tipo decente.
En fin, una comedia no va a ningún lado si en vez de estar comentando sus chistes estás en pensando si algún personaje vale la pena como ser humano.
Gostei do fato das personagens terem uns aspectos bem detestáveis e isso não prejudicar seus pontos positivos, pelo menos nesse aspecto ele se aproxima um pouco mais da realidade. Fora isso, tem alguns momentos divertidos mas não acho que seja muito marcante.
I know I shouldn't expect highly of this kind of film but with a cast like that, it could've been so much better. I still had fun, though.
I give Bachelorette — and its three primary actors — credit for presenting three largely unlikable characters. As played by Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher, the three bridesmaids are mean-spirited, damaged and self-centered. Unfortunately, that doesn't give the movie that surrounds them much momentum, or make their journey of mild but measurable improvement especially fascinating.
Worth seeing if you're a fan of one or more of the actresses — Caplan is especially good — but makes you wish they'd reunite for a deeper, sharper sequel.
I've never hated every single character the way I hated every one of these. Lizzy Caplan is better than this.
good and entertaining, but honestly so stressful to watch at times that it took some of the joy away. they never really faced any repercussions for being so cruel about becky's weight, and that bothered me.
