Bachelorette (2012)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: It has its moments, but Bachelorette ultimately plays it too safe with its trio of unlikable leads, betraying them with a predictably sentimental final act that undermines the bracingly honest humor preceding it.

This isn't Bridesmaids, it's HurlyBurly for women pushing 30.

The Improper Bostonian

Bachelorette strives to recapture the close-to-the-knuckle comic mayhem that made Bridesmaids a surprise hit, but the essential sweetness that underpinned the earlier film's gross-out gags is sadly lacking.

Movie Talk

The edginess is just window dressing. The message is as schmaltzy as anything you'd find in a kooky rom-com.

Daily Star

Bachelorette is very much its own bitter brew, using the comic framework of a botched, coke-fuelled hen night to examine the stinging self-loathing exposed in three women by another's happiest day.

Give me a nice Audrey Hepburn film any day.

Retains that edge regularly removed from more commercially amenable comedies, and the cast make merry-ish ...

Audience Reviews for Bachelorette

½

Kind of disappointing. I didn't hate it, but for a comedy, it was low on laughs. I think the only even vaguely likeable one out of the three girls was Isla Fisher, and actually she was pretty horrible too, but kind of dumb, so you could laugh at it. Kristen Dunst I have never before seen so harsh on screen. The third girl I didn't recognize as an actress and I didn't like her at all.
Rebel Wilson is the only one you can really like here, but her screen time is less than the other three.
Maybe I just expected better because of the cast. I will have to watch it again sometime with my lowered expectations.

Actually did appreciate this more on a second viewing. Realising it wasn't going to be a laugh a minute (though there certainly are some dark laughs to be had), I could better see these girls are actually quite troubled. I didn't find Isla's character funny this time, actually she's very sad. Funnily enough, I liked Kirsten more this time.
A flawed, but decent study of the rivalries hidden behind friendships.

With such a stellar a cast, this film should have been fantastic. Except, that it was a very poor attempt to match the comedy of Bridesmaids...with only raunchier humor. The characters in this movie were unlikeable, unbelievable, annoying, and sad (as in sad attempt). The writing, and stupid dialogue, was even worse. Too bad....

Bachelorette was not funny nor entertaining. I was quite bored and annoyed by almost all of these characters. Regan, Katie, and Gena are self absorbed and awful to their loyal friend Becky. The way they talked about her as if she was undeserving of marriage to a decent looking guy and being happy because she is a fubluscious gal is something I find really gross and petty. I'm not a fan of catty biotches in life or in movies (which is why I have a lot of guy friends).
I actually liked Gena and Clyde when they were off by themselves. I think Lizzy Caplan and Adam Scott were the only good things to come out of the film. I love Rebel Wilson, but she was not used nearly enough in this film. It's not something I would see again.
