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

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.

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

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 ...

Gleefully caustic comedy that sticks an elbow in the face of the usual chick flick conventions ...

It flips in and out of its tone too many times. Nevertheless it does have a sourness and a wretchedness that make some moments startlingly real and vivid.

It cuts to the quick with toxic glee, confronting us with a trio of the worst friends you could possibly want at your wedding.

It's hard to feel anything but vacuity after watching, regardless of Dunst's commendable and animated turn at crushing the nuptials dream.

This is simply one of the best of its druggy-slackers-go-bananas genre. And such beautiful women haven't been allowed to be so funny since Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

The cast tear through the film with bug-eyed glee, with Fisher and Caplan perfect as the two worst friends a girl could ever have.

No amount of zingy putdowns from Dunst or coke lines from Caplan can hide the fact that this film is fluffy at heart (and no worse for that).

...the filmmaker devotes much of the movie's first half to endless sequences that are, by and large, utterly devoid of laughs.

Three bridesmaids embark on a non-stop parade of debauchery fueled by coke, booze, and pills... for all those people that wished Bridesmaids was more like The Hangover.

This is a movie about people who have been so caught up in themselves, in being so defiantly themselves at the expense of actual human connection, that life is passing them by.

It's a ensemble piece of attractive ladies, but their beauty is only skin deep. Each of the characters is an ugly person inside

It would be a major mistake to think that Bachelorette is simply a rip-off of Bridesmaids with a healthy dose of Mean Girls stirred into the mix. This comedy clearly marches to its own beat.

Self-consciously raunchy, and simply more loud and annoying than funny, Bachelorette serves as ample evidence that women can do stupid and crude as well as men, if pushed to it.
