Starring: Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Sigourney Weaver, Odette Yustman and Betty White

Story: Successful PR pro Marni heads home for her older brother's wedding and discovers that he's marrying her high school arch nemesis, who's conveniently forgotten their problematic past. Then the bride's jet-setting aunt bursts in and Marni's not-so-jet-setting mom comes face to face with her own high school rival. The claws come out and old wounds are opened in this crazy comedy that proves that not all rivalries are forever. (Touchstone Pictures)

Rated: PG

Bottom Line: Hey guess what - I’m capable of enjoying a chick-flick! Yay for me! The title would certainly suggest that we’ve seen this all before (and maybe we have to some extent) - but YOU AGAIN, although predictable and by-the-numbers still manages to entertain. When most actors would simply phone their performances in for a movie like this – Bell, Curtis and Weaver go out of their way to earn every dollar they were paid and, in the process, end up delivering a light, easy-going, cleverly-premised movie that’ll make you laugh.
