Becky has just been proposed to by her boyfriend, Dale, a man who many feel is simply out of her league. With the wedding in New York City, her friends from high school all come into town, reunited and ready to party at the Bachelorette party, with some much more mature than others. Becky insists on keeping the bachelorette party tame, but her friends are determined to have a good time with or without her and end up accidentally destroying Becky's wedding dress. With only a few hours to fix the dress, the three friends, Gena, Katie, and Regan wander the streets of New York attempting to fix this horrendous problem they have found themselves in. Leslye Headland's Bachelorette is a crude, nasty little comedy that has more in common with 'The Hangover' then 'Bridesmaids because of its disregard for good taste and desire to show that woman can be just as raunchy and ridiculous as men. The film has clearly defined characters in Regan, Katie and Gena, all of which fit into a certain archetype: the bimbo, the cynic and the overachiever bitch. While some may find this to be a bad thing, each of these characters really work well together, providing a lot of fun bits of comedy. The film flounders a bit at times, going into some sentimental moments regarding ex-boyfriends and personal issues that I just didn't find necessary, but when it focuses on the comedy it's a lot of fun. While all the actresses do a good job with there respective performances, Kirsten Dunst is really the standout, playing this controlling, over-achieving bitchy type character to perfection. Bachelorette is a raunchy, nasty film that doesn't rest on its laurels, really going all out to offend, surprise and provide a comedic experience for the audience.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
