Reviews: Bachelorette (2012)

Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Jason Bailey @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: It will certainly not have the kind of wide appeal that ‘Bridesmaids’ did. It feels more like that picture’s scrappier, foul-mouthed little sister.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Writer/director Leslye Headland makes her feature debut with this comedy which isn’t really all that funny but is a lot more honest than last year’s “Bridesmaids.
  • Candice Frederick @ Reel Talk
    • Excerpt: Unlike its predecessor, which delicately balanced a keen sentimental chord with raunch comedy, Bachelorette sharply avoids all real emotion to descend upon the secret dark struggles of high school-stricken female adults.
  • Cynthia Fuchs @ PopMatters
    • Excerpt: Like so many other high school friends gathered for special occasions in movies, these three bridesmaids wreak havoc, until they don’t.
  • Kimberly Gadette @ doddle
    • Excerpt: Wicked LaBute-ian fun until that dastardly last act. When this black of a comedy is suddenly dipped into a rosy-red vat of sentimentality … we know the dye’s going to run very, very soon.

    • Excerpt: Unspeakably pitiless. This is the sort of movie that makes me hate movies.
  • Jason Pirodsky @
    • Excerpt: After films like Bride Wars or Sex and the City 2 accidentally gave us these sickening creatures in the guise of empowering women, here comes Bachelorette, thrusting its pussy in our collective faces and challenging us to see how much we can take.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: Bachelorette is neither for the meek or the prudish. The guys from “The Hangover” couldn’t party with these girls.
  • Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
    • Excerpt: You spend 90 minutes with three obnoxious, petty, self-pitying cokeheads who have more interest in the bride’s dress than they do in her feelings. Pathetic.

  • Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: Don’t worry, ‘Bridesmaids.’ You’re still number one on the comedy hit parade for movies about pre-wedding hijinks. In fact, ‘Bachelorette’ turns out to be a silly rip-off that tries to capitalize on your box-office success.
