Absolutely terrible, no unique personalities, no character growth, just complete awfulness. This pretty great cast couldn't even hold the thin plot and poorly written humor "romcom" together because there is no way a single actor related to the one-dimensional aspects of this awful movie.
Now, it is very sad to see this kind of crap coming from Hollywood, the city of dreams for so many movie lovers like me. What also angers me is to get the impression that most of the players seem to be having a great time while making this unspeakable flicker. Just for that I will never forgive them. I do not think they were in such hardship so as not to be able to reject the script.
THIS Hollywood film is just another piece of junk with plenty of derogatory remarks towards the actresses.
The worst phrase I heard is "Shut the f**k up, c**t!" during a sex scene.
Everything pertains to the conclusion that women are cheap and can be considered as objects instead of people with emotions, feelings, respect and all.
I don't mind curses in films, it's fine, understandable when in the context. BUT, purposeful derogatory curses are really bad.
General male attitude towards females is what is most disturbing in this film. (only 1 guy had respect for females)
ABOUT the acting/comedy:
I didn't laugh like.. AT ALL! The film is about how friends try their best to make up for a stupid mistake with a countdown to a wedding. Some drunk & high girls saying meaningless words does not make it a comedy. Kirsten Dunst did a nice job, really appreciable. Lizzy Caplan has proved that she can do much for the big screen as well. Isla Fisher was just the third wheel, without adding much weight to the whole film, and was totally wasted during most of the film.
The acting, well, everyone did what the script said to do.
I hate this movie. I can't believe it myself.
Bachelorette goes to show that you can still have a bad film with a great cast. Unfortunately, it;s the story and the implausible characters, which I found annoying and quite unbelievable. I am also tired of film-makers and writers trying to show drug addiction in a brighter light than it really is. I know addicts and none are like Isla Fisher's and Lizzy Caplan's characters. I find this to also be degrading to family and friends who know people suffering drug addiction. These people would not keep watching this film. There was no reason for this to even be in the movie, it just seemed like a "Quick Fix" to add some immature comedic moments. The writers and director should've taken a more responsible approach. With a little bit of work and creative writing, they would've had a stronger story and film.
So it sounds like I'm coming down on the movie and that I didn't like it, well if it hadn't been for Kirsten Dunst and Rebel Wilson I would've turned this off quite early. Because of them, I stayed to the end, and even though I suffered feeling embarrassed for the actors at the start of the movie, I wasn't too upset at the end of the film, where everything works out okay in the end.
This film suffers from weak writing and mediocre direction and could've been so much better. There are some good giggle moments, but nothing in the laugh-out-loud. If Immature humour is your thing then you may like this.
Men characters are just as one dimensional and hate able. James Marsden and Adam Scott are just duchy and forgettable.
You follow the three girls: Kristen, Isla, and Lizzy around New York city after they have pretty much completely ruined the rehearsal dinner and bachelorette party (which was technically only 5 minutes) with cruel comments and erratic intoxication resulting in destroying the brides dress.
They zoom around trying to find ways to "fix" the dress, not really because they feel bad, but because they don't want to be responsible. You almost catch the feeling like they aren't the brides friends at all? Just being bridesmaids out of obligation?
There is more drug use, sex and dark secrets that emerge to help you understand why the girls are such heartless disasters. Only in the end to get the dress as "wearable" (still awful), get to the wedding on time and still pretty much remain cold and unphased. All and all after watching a third or fourth time, you start to get over the fact that the characters have no souls and just be entertained by the "dark comedy" elements. 5 out 10!
Definitely made me hate the other girls, I understood them, but they definitely are not the kind of people I will hang around with.
The ending is OK, not so dramatic, no tears shed here, but it was not a total waste of time to watch this movie.
I was hoping for apologies here and there, flashbacks, etc., to get the feel of their friendship, but did not see it at all.
Keep your expectation low when watching this movie.
"Bachelorette" is an unfunny and moronic comedy with unpleasant characters, gross jokes and stupid situations. The three friends are drugged, alcoholic, envious and promiscuous women. My vote is two.
Title (Brazil): "Quatro Amigas e um Casamento" ("Four Friends and One Wedding")
What isn't really working is the parts where the film is being too much (it does happen many times), sadly most of these times there are lame jokes and embarrassing moments, that really wasn't necessary, because there are many small fun moments that work and are good. This ruined some of the film for me and there really wasn't enough truly sweet, funny and good moments to counter weigh the bad ones.
Negative points of the movie: the relationships between the people (especially the girls) is very foggy. It is difficult to understand why they are friends in the first place if they all dislike Becky.
This part contains a spoiler:
Also I disliked the fact that Trevor being a disgusting person who doesn't see the problem in having sex with barely conscious women is barely mentioned. In the end he is also part of the happy end and gets a "Call Me!", but aside from Joe just mentioning in one sentence "That would be like rape" it's not really made an issue... and he could come off as a cool guy to many people. Which date-rape-y guys should definitely not be seen as!
But other than that this movie does not deserve the harsh reviews it got here! Many things could have been done better, but the acting was just wonderful! At least you need to give that movie that!
I really enjoyed this movie,very intimate. This clique really shows us the real friendship between girls. They remind me of my friends, the actresses had real chemistry.
This is an honest movie.Yes.Sometimes we talked about each other behind their backs, and sometimes we made a fool together but we still came along after this time. In every clique has different kind member characters. I loved the story about Lizzie Chaplan as the rebel woman and his ex, many of woman has a same problem.That's why i called this movie has intimate vibe.
Movie isn't always had a big effects or magnifying stories, for me, when you enjoyed during watched, so the movie was succeed.
On the night before an old friend's wedding, three frisky bridesmaids go searching for a little fun but find much more than they bargained for. With lovely Becky set to marry her handsome sweetheart, Dale, the remaining members of her high school clique reunite for one last bachelorette bacchanal in the Big Apple.
Despite of the talent involved to make is a good movie,it turned out to be underwhelming due to an average screenplay and the humor rarely delivered laughs to the viewer.Also,it also played safe on the story to come up with a sentimental conclusion to the detriment of the film as a whole despite having a few good moments.
It pulls no punches around how self-centred and shallow people often are. You could almost believe that Becky's friends are trying to ruin her wedding and subconsciously this may be what is happening, but the characters, brilliantly led by Kirsten Dunst's bitter Regan in their mayhem, come good in the end and make peace with the fact that Becky is getting married and they are not - and in the main confront their own issues. If this sounds cheesy, it isn't. The girls lurch from one to disaster to another in a totally relatable way. The Acting is terrific, but the real star is the script which fires one-liner after one-liner at you without losing narrative discipline, unlike a lot of comedies these days that seem to be written as extended skits rather than stories.
Witty, pretty and badass, this film does not disappoint. Ignore. The. ratings. Get it on DVD.
6.1 / 10 stars

It's about a woman who's going to get married the next day, when her best friends accidentally tear up her wedding dress (yes, seriously). Therefore, they have to get it fixed in the middle of the night and end up going on a hilarious adventure.
Unfortunately, it's not hilarious. It's not even funny. I checked the time on the DVD at about 40 minutes in and I still hadn't laughed. And that's not a good sign for a comedy. If you check out the general reviews, you'll see that most people describe it as a 'horrible' film. I wouldn't call it horrible, just not funny.
The characters are pretty unlikeable and every mess they get into is largely their fault. You won't really care about any of them and, despite being good actresses (Kristen Dunst and Isla Fisher) they can't bring any real humour to this film.
If you like the idea of a film that's basically 'a female The Hangover' stick to Bridesmaids. That had charm and humour. This has neither.
The story is simple enough: Four high school friends all get together to relive their glory days as one, the most unattractive (Rebel Wilson), is about to get married. The bridesmaids consist of high-strung Kirsten Dunst, burnout Lizzy Caplan, and dim-witted but lovable Isla Fisher, which in my opinion Isla Fisher absolutely stole the show. I loved it. It is very mean and in your face with it's brutality. You almost wonder why these women are even friends to begin with, but unlike everyone saying there is no reason, the film ties up all it's loose ends and shows how all of the women have their own battle scars and shining personalities in the end.
Don't let the comments and rating shy you away from this one, there are some gut-busting scenes. Like I said, Isla Fisher was magnificent. I thoroughly enjoyed and believed in her character, not to say the other stars didn't deliver, she just outshines them!
The cast should be ashamed of themselves. I cannot believe that I had to register to say how bad this movie is.
What a waste of time and money.
The acting is terrible.
The plot non describable .
Do yourself a favor and don't even attempt to view this movie.
So sad that I wasted ten minutes even trying to enjoy the acting or humour because there was zero. waste of time.
There is no plot - is boring and goes nowhere.
Honestly I did try to enjoy this movie because two of my fave actors are there but seriously is a bad pic.
Even the scenery was bad - not real.
Plot is predictable, yet it catches you, maybe because characters are really good and the actors seem happy to impersonate young, smart, fresh people.
Leslye Headland is a very interesting writer: waiting for her last work ('Sleeping with Other People') to be completed, I'll go check her remake (for black actors) of 1986 Edward Zwick's movie (based on a 1974 David Mamet's play) 'About Last Night '.
I admire Rebel Wilson and she, for the most part was in the background for the entire film. She has so much to give comedy wise, but her humour was not used in this film, unbeknownst to why!
The film centres primarily on one night and an unbelievable amount of stuff happens in this one night.. there a many scenes which were used that shouldn't have been there. I am still struggling to find the message behind some of them!
I was impressed with Lizzy Caplan's performance, although she was portrayed as a rather obnoxious girl along with Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher's characters. She did have a few brief moments where she brought some humour into the film.
I guess the moral of the film was the self-obsessed girls don't win in the end.
Overall I gave it a 5, I won't be watching it again.
