Three sentence movie reviews: Bachelorette


Boy howdy, did I hate this movie.  The “friends” were terrible–they make the Heathers from Heathers look like the best friends you would ever want.  There wasn’t nearly enough Rebel Wilson and though I was intrigued enough by Lizzy Caplan to see what else she’d been in, this was mostly a waste of my time.

Cost: free from library.*
Where watched: at home.

*I grabbed this movie because it was written and directed by Leslye Headland, who directed Sleeping With Other People and the remake of About Last Night, both of which I enjoyed.  I hated this enough to watch the DVD extras and found out that Headland was happy to have created such complex female characters and I will agree with her.  Her characters were complex in a way that I mostly couldn’t relate to (Caplan’s character was the exception) and thus made me want to run far, far away.

I like unlikeable female characters, (see: Young Adult, Adventureland, The Runaways) but there has to be something about them that hooks me.  These ladies did not.

  1. Hmm, I think I’m actually in the minority in that I don’t really like Rebel Wilson (not big on her style of comedy), which is what kept me from giving this film a chance. I feel like I dodged a bullet.
