Movie Review: Bachelorette

A wedding event that might turn out to be a disaster because of dysfunctional friends. There are twists and turns till all is well that ends well. Haven't we seen this many times on screen? Yes, we have. Bachelorette directed by Leslye Headland based on her own play is the latest addition to this genre. It is told from the girl's point of view and it does raise a few laughs.

So, you have three friends Regan(Kirsten Dunst), Gena(Lizzy Caplan) and Katie(Isla Fisher) who are in NY to attend Becky's(Rebel Wilson) wedding. The foursome were great friends from their high school years. They have seen ups and downs. The upcoming wedding is another up and down at the same time. It is a moment to rejoice for Becky while the rest of the three are not very happy about Becky being the first one in the foursome to settle down.

Leslye Headland's movie starts with jealousy. It then then traces the lives of the three friends through conversations and funny incidents. It peaks to a meltdown when egos clashes and secrets tumble out of the closet. At the end, everyone finds peace and happiness in their lives by correcting their past mistakes. Although there are funny moments, there isn't much to write about this movie. As for the performances, Kirsten Dunst stands out and Isla Fisher brings out smiles although she is playing the stereotypical superficial woman.

Watch it on DVD if you have nothing else to choose.
