Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
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.
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…
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…
Moves between tones and abrasive forms of nasty behavior with such ease, it almost plays like a mainstream attempt of impersonating Abel Ferrara and the cast is truly great.
lizzy caplan is so hot that's the only good thing i have to say about this movie
Uno de los grandes problemas con Bachelorette, es que me da la sensación de que querían mostrar a las tres protagonistas como las cool e irreverentes, ya sabes, uuuh drogas y hombres, tenemos un problema enorme pero mírennos, AQUÍ AL TIRO. Un big mess y todo se nos perdona.
Pero al final, sólo evidencia lo que pasa al tener amigas douchebags que se salen con la suya, de la peor manera, una muy fantasiosa, dramática e histérica. Una Rebel Wilson desperdiciada, un final mediocre, todo muy patético.
Lo único es Kirsten Dunst acostarse por dos segundos en la cama y luego levantarse. Para eso mejor sólo veo el gif y ya.
I circled back to this because I really enjoyed Leslye Headland's Sleeping with Other People.
Bachelorette's best moments are the reflective moments when one or more of the four leads talks about her life, the things that have brought her here, and why she's both unhappy and maybe stuck. There's a fullness to their characters that's uncommon among women in raunch comedies.
But the actual raunch comedy is ... ho-hum. The incident that's intended to kick the plot into overdrive — the ruined dress — feels, overall, like a mistake. It's never as interesting as the women themselves, so it crowds out potentially more interesting moments.
Further notes: Isla Fisher should have a much bigger career. Adam Scott is gold. As is Lizzy Caplan. And Kirsten Dunst makes a tough-as-nails bitch (oversold in dialogue) into a prickly but human woman who by god will not let things fall apart even if she has to hold the center herself.
what's up with americans and their movies about terrible people
Better than what I expected but omg i was so anxious the whole time. ps. Isla Fisher 4 eva <3
Its characters may be wholly unlikeable, but I can't help but be swayed by them. A fun, bawdy comedy about female friendships that isn't afraid to go to some dark places and probe the darker side of human nature.
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.
