Early in the movie, when Marni first finds out Joanna will be staying in her room, you can clearly see two twin beds. Later, when Will comes in to give Joanna the rose, there is only one large bed. The big bed is seen multiple times throughout the movie. See more »

You Again is a romantic comedy lacking both romance and comedy. It stars Kristen Bell (who I LOVED on Veronica Mars), Odette Yustman (who is hot), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween is great), and Sigourney Weaver (Alien, anybody) Alright, so we got a pretty solid cast for a pretty bad movie. Actually REALLY awful. 3rd worst film of 2010 for me.
So the movie starts off showing Kristen Bell as a teen playing the most stereotypical nerd that I've seen in a long time. She's so stereotypical that it's not believable. She was bullied by Odette Yustman. Exactly what Odette did (besides call her Moo) is unclear, but she was a BIG MEANIE! so several years later, Kristen bell is hotter and her bland brother James Wolk is getting married to Odette Yustman. Coincidentally, Odette's aunt is Sigourney Weaver. She was rivals with Kristen's mom Jamie Lee Curtis.
This is where the "humor" comes in. A lot of pratfalls and food getting dumped on people and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in a pointless and unfunny cameo. (He previously worked with director Andy Fickman in The Game Plan and Race to witch mountain) At only 105 minutes, this film moves at a snail's pace and was a pain to sit through. However, I have a rule that you can never leave a movie early because the end can change your mind entirely. Well the end is horrible
OK yeah. So the acting. Odette Yustman is hot but CAN NOT ACT! Kristen Bell is a good actress but she's very bland here. Betty White isn't given enough screen time. Victor Garber (of Alias fame) does absolutely nothing. and James Wolk is just a poor actor.
Even if you can get past the clichés and predictable storyline because you just want some good old fashioned escapism, that still doesn't excuse the fact that this film was boring and unfunny with a bunch of despicable characters and not a hint of wit or charm. I can't say that my expectations were particularly high for this movie, but I didn't expect it to be this bad. Wow. Waste of time.
