Storyline

As a teenager Marni was the kind of girl no guy would go near and would be tormented by the mean girls, and no one was meaner to her than Joana the head cheerleader. Years later, she's a successful woman with a good job. When she goes home for her brother's wedding she discovers that her brother is marrying Joana. And he doesn't know what she did to Marni. When they meet she wants Joana to apologize for the way she treated her but Joana feigns ignorance. When Marni tells her mother, Gail about her and Joana, Gail tells her to try and put it behind her. But when Gail meets Joana's aunt Mona, it turns that she's her old friend Ramona who was her friend in high school whom she had falling out with with years ago, and Gail is unaware what caused it. Gail feels like Mona is trying to thumb her success in her face. When Marni learns that Joana does remember her she sets to expose her to her brother. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Quotes

Marni: I got to admit, the first few rounds went to Joanna. She played some very good hands. Very good, but I'm glad. It made me realize that we have to take it a step up. Take it to a whole new level.
Ben: Whoa. "We"? No, she's your arch nemesis. I'm not going to be part of your evil plan to bring down Joanna.
Marni: I'll give you 20 bucks.
Ben: Done.

A pain to watch
24 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
