Bridesmaids, Hold the Upper Decker

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 marriage. The issue is the 3 NOT getting married are shocked it's the kind if unattractive Becky that's landed the rich and handsome husband-to-be and not, well, anyone else. The rest of the movie explores exactly why this is: Gena still isn't over her high school boyfriend, Katie is oblivious and Regan is goal-oriented to the point of psychopathy. Did I also mention they're all coke-heads? Fans of Curb Your Enthusiasm are sure to love this movie. Each character engineers their own destruction as well as those around them, thus forcing them on a quest to try to fix things as best they can. There are no poop jokes, though there is more than a little vomit. This is a real comedy: funny people in funny situations. My only complaint is Rebel Wilson's character didn't get more screentime.

Intense Floral Arrangement

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 together, staying calm, in control, charming as a feather in the wind. If I could spell a whistle it would go: Barruuga....uuuga!

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 another with viscious barbs.

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 with the best My so Called Life references I've ever seen in a film, then you will like this movie =).

One big mean mess!

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 direct). WOW - how did this ever happen?
