2 1/2 out of 5 stars. Bachelorette felt like Bridesmaids knockoff with way less likable characters and way more snark. The Lizzy Caplan/Adam Scott storyline was okay (temporarily filling the hole that the absence of Party Down has left in my life) and there were a few laughs along the way but the only other saving grace was the brief running time. That aside, who cares?
An ok effort but way too messy for its own good. The movie tries to juggle too many styles and themes and is ultimately crushed by its own ambition. The jokes somewhat funny but come out just cruel and bitter. The human tragedy and drama of the story is too briefly handled to add up to anything. And rarely have I seen so unsympathetic and cruel lead characters for a suppossed dramedy.
the chemistry between Caplan and Scott works so well it could have just been ninety one minutes of them two and I would have been happy. It definitely has its moments, it's not a side hurting laugh a-thon but it will make you giggle and feel feelings.
Yeah this'd make an acerbic, abrasive double bill with Young Adult - and equally misunderstood. I don't get the sanctimonious critiques about how 'terrible' and 'awful' all the characters are, especially when everything between Caplan and Scott is so remarkably raw and human. Fuck everyone.
