Bachelorette...2.5 out of 4 Skittles
8 September 2012 | by FilmStallionSee all my reviews

If you took the characters from Bridesmaids and stripped them of their likability, then you would have the characters from Bachelorette. Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man, Melancholia), Lizzy Caplan (True Blood, Mean Girls) and Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic) play three friends who were the popular girls in high school, but are now just a pack of bitter, quarter life crisis bitches. Brought together the night before the wedding of the 4th member of their crew, (the highly underutilized Rebel Wilson), the jealous girls go on a drug fueled rampage and seem to be hell bent on destroying their so-called friend's wedding. They don't like themselves, or anyone around them…which makes it hard to like them.

That being said…the script written by newcomer director Leslye Headland is brazenly honest. Although the characters produced by Headland's script are hard to like, they are easily believable and bizarrely funny. You see these kinds of selfish, materialistic and egocentric women all the time. I guess this is just a story told from their side of things.

Another highlight of the film is the chemistry put together by Caplan & Adam Scott (The Vicious Kind, Step Brothers). These two were great together on the extremely entertaining albeit short lived show Party Down, and continue the magic on screen here as former high school sweethearts who's relationship ended badly. They kind of feel like this generations love dove team of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Hopefully the Party Down movie continues down the pipeline and gets made so we can see these two together again.

If you can make it past the anger and deep emotional scars that these kinds of girls leave on everything around them, then you will probably enjoy the harsh humor that comes Bachelorette. Dunst, Caplan, Fisher and Wilson are all funny together and deliver solid performances that help keep this tale of grown up mean girls afloat.
