Bachelorette Official Trailer

Video

Summary from Sundance:

Regan is used to being first at everything. Imagine her horror and chagrin when she finds out the girl everyone called Pig Face in high school is going to tie the knot before she does! But Regan sucks it up and takes on bridesmaid duties along with her childhood pals: substance-abusing, promiscuous Gena and ditzy Katie. The single ladies are determined to put their bitterness aside and have an awesomely hedonistic bachelorette party. Armed with acerbic wit and seemingly endless supplies of coke and booze, the foul-mouthed femmes embark on one very long and emotional night filled with major wedding-dress panic, various bodily fluids, and cute ex-boyfriends.

Ok, so this looks like a female version of The Hangover. I am glad to see Rebel Wilson getting more parts since Bridesmaids (she is also going to be in Pitch Perfect, a movie about collegiate a capella groups). The trailer wasn’t that funny to me.  This movie will probably be terrible.

A few questions:

  • Why do all movies with female leads have to be about weddings?
  • Why was the fat girl bullied in high school? Since like 65% of Americans are obese, a lot of bullies don’t target fat people because everyone is fat.
  • Why are women always portrayed as “mean girls?”
  • Will most of the humor come from sex, drugs, alcohol, and bodily functions? Because that is lazy.
