Bottom Line: A cynically crass, drug-infused, backstabbingly raunchy and heartlessly dishonest b*tchfest. Carving a slightly recycled and over-the-top cinematic path, this is the black sheep distant cousin to 2011’s BRIDESMAIDS meets the overtly grimy I-need-to-shower-afterward vibe of THE HANGOVER 2 by way of the these-people-are-so-awful-I-don’t-care-what-happens-to-them shame of Charlize Theron’s YOUNG ADULT. The story has some zip courtesy of a bit of sharply written dialogue and a cast that’s, apparently, game for anything – so you’ll definitely find some laughs...  That being said, it loses much of it's bite in the second half and you may start feeling like you've seen this (in one for or another) all before.  Sporadically fun to hang out with yet not the marrying kind, this BACHELORETTE should never be given a rose.

Starring: Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, Rebel Wilson and James Marsden
Directed by: Leslye Headland
Rated: R
Running time: 93 minutes
Story: 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. Regan is an overachieving, ueber-Maid of Honor who's secretly smarting over the fact that she's not the first to marry, while Gena is a whip-smart sarcastic who's actually a closet romantic, and Katie is a ditzy beauty who loves the good life. But when Becky insists on keeping the bachelorette party tame, the women proceed with an after-hours celebration of their own. (The Weinstein Company)
