December 8, 2012
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.

Bachelorette is all about these very fine actresses playing some pretty sad, desperate women who have some pretty funny lines to say.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 18, 2012
The performances and characters are the best thing about Bachelorette, which tries to walk a fine line between bawdy gross-out comedy and introspective "what have I done with my life?" drama for 30-somethings.

"It may be wrapped in the pretence of a comedy, but scratch beneath the shiny facade and sharp one-liners, and there's a dense and dark core."
November 3, 2012
A comedy with an almost cruel level of honesty that explores not just the weird dynamics of long-term friendships but the deeper forces that operate inside each individual.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Limp, lazy, unfocussed...about as funny as flat champagne.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 31, 2012
The material becomes increasingly uncomfortable since it mainly comes from sad and traumatic places. This is what gives the film its edge.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 29, 2012
Leslye Headland's bitterly unfunny Bachelorette not only squanders a talented cast of comic performers, but also chastises the audience for revelling in the unfiltered awfulness of their characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 28, 2012
Unpleasant, repellent viewing that, surprisingly, offers only repugnant characters and toxic protagonists, nothing more.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 28, 2012
Lacking the charm and genuine heart of Bridesmaids, Bachelorette feels like a bouquet of wilted flowers - brittle and less than lovely, outstanding performances notwithstanding
October 19, 2012
The actresses are thoroughly committed to the memorable roles they boldly inhabit, but the performers as well as the characters deserve a less compromised vehicle.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 28, 2012
Bachelorette is a thoroughly off-putting misfire that squanders its talented cast with horrible writing and an overabundance of bitter fights, vulgar language and general bitchiness.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10
September 28, 2012
The funny stuff is impertinently delightful and honest, and delivered expertly by this female ensemble. Material this hilarious and astute is a rare thing in the few comedies that dare to be dominated by women

Did you enjoy "Bridesmaids" last year, but wish it had been a bit more cynical, mean-spirited, and druggy?
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
September 28, 2012
Bachelorette is a poor-woman's Bridesmaids, in need of a bit more laugh-inducing moments...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 21, 2012
...there's no soft center here, no sweetness lurking to cut the tart. This is a raw and genuinely brave film that falters here and there, but gets up swearing and snarling, a razor in its pretty little hand.
Full Review | Original Score: 87/100
September 21, 2012
Dunst ... seems liberated in playing this shrill, tightly wound woman who comes unhinged when her dreams of a perfectly staged wedding - even if it's not her own - start slipping away.

September 19, 2012
What's the point of creating such defiantly unlikable characters if you're just going to declaw them and give them hearts of gold before the closing credits roll? A better title might have been Girls Gone Mild.
September 17, 2012
The women's dialogue is pungently ribald but diffuse; too often, shouting and shrieking and gesticulating take the place of engaged performance.
September 14, 2012
A nasty little piece of work -- a phrase I use not with contempt but with grudging admiration.
