Miami Herald

By Connie Ogle
The film is also less bloated than "Bridesmaids" - a comedy is always more nimble at 90 minutes than two hours - and it's less maudlin,...

This nearly pitch-black comedy is better than its tiresome use of '90s pop references, no matter how much they illuminate what the gals...

Dunst is the realest, rawest thing in the film.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Yet if Bachelorette takes the form of a romantic ensemble comedy, it's purged of any true romantic feeling. You'll laugh, maybe a lot, but...

The characters in Bachelorette are most human when they're behaving badly. They break the spell when they turn into women we can merely...

Rolling Stone

Headland can write zingers that would make the cruelest bridezilla blush. And Caplan's treatise on the art of the blow job is time-capsule...

Headland works hard to reconcile the wild and the tame; if she never quite gets the balance right, ya gotta admire her bold juxtaposition...

Bridesmaids, Hold the Upper Decker

By zephyrtr
More of a hard-nosed comedy than a lewd, 2-hour SNL sketch, Bachelorette starts off without giving you much time to think: old high school friends are reunited as the first of the four prepares for...

Intense Floral Arrangement

By gilbert282
How dynamic - the microscopic overlook of such charming and diverse maidens! I really loved the way Kirsten summarized the movie's conclusion - advancing from scene to scene, holding the fiasco...


By Bonitababs
Hated it. Walked out. On a scale of 0-10? Gave it a zero. It's a satire, said the critcs. A satire? Hardly; satire has wit; this has none. Just a bunch of losers snorting cocaine and eviscerating...

One big mean mess!

By jeffrohde
Nothing else to say other than hopefully this disgusting offensive waste of emulsion (digital or otherwise) keeps anyone form ever allowing Leslye Headland near a computer (to write) or a camera (to...

Hilarious DARK Comedy...don't go expecting "Bridesmaids II"

By 143-ChickFlicks
Seeing some of the more negative reviews I have to assume that people went expecting Bridesmaids II...that is not what this film is. If however you can appreciate a well written, sharp DARK comedy...


By RobinEdward
The best that could be said is that the film was somewhat entertaining and had moments that were funny, but for the most part it was exceptionally low-brow and in really bad taste. It is definitely...

Not another Bridesmaids

By kelelaoha
I was hoping that this would have the comedy and wittiness of Bridesmaids, especially since Rebel Wilson is awesome, but it was awkward (in the uncomfortable way) and kind of frustrating. Very dry. No...


By Bobby B
This movie was really terrible. An attempted rip off of Bridesmaids but not funny, not entertaining, and not clever. It is amazing that some of these actors/actresses wasted their time and talent...

Not One Good Thing About This Movie

By lisalahiff
I saw this movie on opening day. What a vulgar, cruel, drug filled, boring, terrible movie. The main character, a sweet heavy blonde is getting married and the entire movie is about how cruel and...
