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.
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.
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.
Viena diennakts viņu mūžā. Neirotiska perfekcioniste, narkomāne, palaistuve, resnā meitene. Viņas visas kopā nav gluži Breakfast Club, bet varētu būt tas, kas no Breakfast Club izaug reālajā dzīvē, kad titri aizslīdējuši un Simple Minds lipīgā hitparāde izskanējusi. Reālā dzīve izrādās diezgan sūdīga padarīšana, jo arī ilggadēja draudzība neglābj no psiholoģisko tarakānu marša pār līdzcilvēku jūtām, nu un principā tas, ko piedāvā autors, ir – vērot, vai tavu tarakānu solis salāgojas ar blakus skanošo ritmu, un mēģināt ar to kaut kā samierināties.
Nezinu. Esmu diezgan nogurusi no tā, ka "reālo dzīvi" kinematogrāfā arvien biežāk portretē tēli ar fundamentālām psihoproblēmām, kaut tā droši vien ir pusapzināta diagnoze rietumu sabiedrībai. Bet gribas ticēt, ka pasaulē joprojām ir cilvēki, kuri dara savas lietas, dzīvo…
For the first third of this movie, I was absolutely disgusted. I had never been so annoyed by an ensemble of characters in my life, and I was absolutely furious with the way they were constructed. There's a bunch of stereotypical characters in this movie that give off a terrible representation of women, from the "I'm smarter than everybody else" women to the "I'll sleep with anyone, drink anything, and take any drug" type. It's just disgusting. It gets a little better as it goes on and tries so hard to show that their characters learned a lesson from all of it, only to show that they didn't learn a damn thing. For the most part, the comedy is way…
Absolute waste of time. 90 minutes of unfunny gags,totally unlikeable characters and dullness. Avoid this like your life depends on it.
I was surprised how entertaining this was
Όλοι έχουμε ατυχες στιγμές, συμβαίνει και στις καλύτερες οικογένειες.
The cast try their best and give decent performances in this black comedy which has unfortunately most of its comedy missing the targets. But Lizzy Caplan, Kirsten Dunst, and Isla Fisher all play their characters brilliantly especially Caplan. But the worst part for me the funniest person in the Rebel Wilson is criminally under used and could have elevated it a little more.
Don't expect a Bridesmaids clone.
It's hard to route for any of the characters - they're all selfish, coked up, slutty bitches... and that's the dudes.
But it wears it's crudeness on its sleeve and for that it has it's charms.
