Movie Info

Successful PR pro Marni heads home for her older brother's wedding and discovers that he's marrying her high school arch nemesis, who's conveniently forgotten their problematic past. Then the bride's jet-setting aunt bursts in and Marni's not-so-jet-setting mom comes face to face with her own high school rival. The claws come out and old wounds are opened in this crazy comedy that proves that not all rivalries are forever.

PG,

Yes, this is shrill, crass mainstream Hollywood product, but it has a tendency towards lurid kitsch freakout which makes it not just relentlessly entertaining, but borderline subversive.

Featuring caricatures instead of characters, "You Again" is a tired and formulaic comedy with few funny moments.

Appropriately titled, You Again won't win any prizes for originality but it does deliver just enough girly fun.

Joining the rank ranks of The Hottie And The Nottie, Gigli, Licence To Wed and any film where Matthew McConaughey gets his groove on with a girl is yet another unspeakably awful rom-com.

In this ditzy whirl nothing is pushed too far -- the bad aren't really bad, they're all sorry. And the assumption that high school is where it all happens is ringingly endorsed.

You Again may have some very experienced faces in the cast, but the end product still turns out to be disappointingly cliched and trite.

It's left to old pros Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver to add class to the proceedings, which they would if they weren't wasted on tedious slapstick.

A clever, perhaps even brilliant idea for a black comedy has here been slathered and stifled in a thick treacly layer of Disney-sentimental gloop.

Matters get a little saccharine and conciliatory near the end, but so do Shakespeare's comedies. Take what you get and enjoy it.

Curtis and Weaver put on their game faces, but the script is consistently intent on embarrassing them, and it doesn't spare Kristin Chenoweth, forced to trot out her sparkly-pixie routines from Glee as a super-duper wedding planner.

Vapid, Disneyfied post-teen comedy lacks a mean (girl) streak.

There are very few laughs, too much stupid slapstick, and I hated the way it turns schmaltzy-sweet by the end.

It's a convoluted set-up that fails to deliver on its promise, combining vindictive yet scarcely believable characters with regular doses of queasy sentiment.

Audience Reviews for You Again

This movie is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It's absolutely painful and boring to watch. A very predictable story, which is to be expected, but there are several unlikeable characters and I hated the main character which is not a good thing. The characters are just complete annoying idiots. I hated this movie.

Grade: F

I know, I know - this is disposable Hollywood pap. And yet, it was kind of good. I liked seeing Kristen Bell with two legends (Sigourney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis), and Betty White was the cherry on top. Fun, couply movie for... couples... but not without some good laughs. The first hour is pretty solid before it drips into Hallmark territory in the end, but this film was much more entertaining than I expected.

Wow, I can't believe how bad this movie was. It doesn't work on any level, even as a basic comedy! So many great actresses completely wasted on this cliche tale of post-High School prepubescent drama that no one should take for a grain of salt.

It's not anything it thinks it is, funny, insightful, emotional, witty; just... no. None of that. The ONLY reason I made it through 1 hour and 45 minutes of this utter garbage is because of my respect for Weaver and Bell.
