Regan, Becky, Gena and Katie are old school friends. Becky (Wilson) announces that she’s getting married – the first out of all of them. This prompts the other three to go into a tail-spin of envy and self-doubt.
They gather for the bachelorette party right before the wedding and, predictably, the three friends start behaving badly (drugs, drinking, stupidity). This behaviour culminates in Becky’s wedding dress being ruined. The three friends embark on an adventure to fix the dress before the nuptials, meeting up with the boys at the bachelor party, meeting up with ex-boyfriends, meeting up with nice guys from school who really like you…
I started to get disheartened when I was about 10 to 15 minutes into the film. But it slowly picked up, and the second half was much better than the first.
The thing is…it’s not a great film, but the actors are some of the best in rom coms. I adore Rebel Wilson, Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher (I can take or leave Kirsten Dunst) so enjoyed seeing them work together.
Look, you can take or leave this flick, don’t expect Bridesmaids, but I think it’s worth a look and wouldn’t mind a second one myself.
