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

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.

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

August 15, 2013
Gleefully caustic comedy that sticks an elbow in the face of the usual chick flick conventions ...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.

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.

Eye for Film

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).

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.

Will Leitch

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 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.

Bachelorette is all about these very fine actresses playing some pretty sad, desperate women who have some pretty funny lines to say.

The Standard

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."
Tim Martain
The Mercury
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

The material becomes increasingly uncomfortable since it mainly comes from sad and traumatic places. This is what gives the film its edge.

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

Bachelorette is a poor-woman's Bridesmaids, in need of a bit more laugh-inducing moments...
