Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan in Bachelorette (2012)

Hideously Obnoxious

At school Regan (Kirsten Dunst), Katie (Isla Fisher) and Gena (Lizzy Caplan) always picked on and humiliated Becky (Rebel Wilson) who they called Pig Face and yet for some reason Becky stayed friends with them. So when Becky meets Regan for lunch and announces her hunky boyfriend Dale (Hayes MacArthur) proposed and they are getting married Regan immediately gets on the phone to her friends to arrange a bachelorette party to give Becky a night she will never forget. But the best laid plans of the girls go seriously wrong when there is an accident with the wedding dress leading to a night time adventure to try and sort it.

Sometimes I watch a movie and wonder whether the intention was not to entertain but show the hypocrisy of the industry and the double standards of audiences. It is my only explanation for "Bachelorette" existing because as a piece of entertainment it is woefully short of anything close to entertainment and becomes a case of, well I actually don't know what as I am kind of at a loss for words.

Now maybe it is just me but watching three women act as obnoxious and ridiculous as possible is not entertaining, listening to them swear all the time or go on about doing drugs and basically insulting everyone possible is not entertaining. And the thing is that if this movie had focused on three guys doing the same it would have sucked just as much as the comedy in "Bachelorette" is terrible. It is the same when it hits the odyssey element of trying to sort out the mess they are in after ruining the wedding dress as it is full of poorly timed moments of gross out humour which are just gross not humorous and noise, lots of noise as people talk over each other and scream.

What this all boils down to is that "Bachelorette" is one moment of daft, obnoxious, gross out nothingness after another which someone might find funny but I don't. It is simply a bad movie from start to finish which I don't understand how it didn't go direct to DVD as it is that poor.
