The 131-minute unrated version contains several additional scenes as follows:
The conversation between Annie (Kristen Wiig) and Mother (Jill Clayburgh) is slightly longer with Mother telling her about Father's "chicken coop" sex act, and it also reveals that Annie's father grew up in a farm.
Becca (Ellie Kemper) mocks Annie for being single and offers to arrange a date for her.
The car ride with Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and Annie after the bridal store fiasco is longer and different than the theatrical version. In the new cut, after Lilian admits crapping her wedding dress, Annie starts to feel uncomfortable, gets out of the car and throws up.
When Annie is at the bathroom, Gil (Matt Lucas) and his sister were in the bathtub together. He asks Annie to hand her the disposable shaver and shaves his sister's armpits.
There's a new 5-minute scene where Annie has a date with a guy called Pete. While waiting at the living room for Pete to get ready, she has a very uncomfortable conversation with his son Taylor (he's talking about "fear of dying", asking about Annie replacing his mother, etc..). After Annie goes upstairs, she overhears Pete talking on the phone telling his wife how he missed her and describes Annie as unattractive. Shocked by that, she went back downstairs and saw Taylor taking some contraceptive pills before leaving the house hastily.
The home video of Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and Jon (Ben Falcone) is slightly longer. She sticks a slice of ham on his chest and eats them. However, Jon's reaction doesn't tell whether he likes it or not.
Incredibly inane - worse if you are a man with IQ 100 +
I had high hopes for this movie, it being touted as a female friendly Hangover movie. I was disappointed with Hangover II, and thought this would be more fresh. How wrong i was.... What really really annoyed me in the movie was the part in the engagement party where the two women were gushing over each other to speak, they changed places like a gazillion times, and kept talking, and talking, until the slightest humor of the occasion was completely gone. As far as I was concerned a lot of the other jokes just fell flat. I couldn't even tell if it was women writing these awful lines or men, giggling insanely as they attempted to make women just seem dumb, stupid, manipulative, bitchy, and so so. I haven't finished the movie yet, I got to half way. That is how bad and poor it was, perhaps the second half is better hence all these good reviews out there. Comedy really needs a shot in the arm.
