    Headland can write zingers that would make the cruelest bridezilla blush. And Caplan's treatise on the art of the blow job is time-capsule worthy. Sadly, Bachelorette is a comic cocktail that goes heavy on the bitters. That's no way to end a wedding. show more

    Headland works hard to reconcile the wild and the tame; if she never quite gets the balance right, ya gotta admire her bold juxtaposition of overdose-resuscitation gags with lessons on self-loathing and bulimia. show more

    Talented actors are wasted in a film that induces more cringes than chuckles as women old enough to know better act like horny sailors on leave, absorb mass quantities of alcohol and drugs, and generally behave horribly. show more

    While plenty of gross-out comedies have come and gone in the last two decades, Leslye Headland's Bachelorette may be the most vulgar of them all. show more

    A tasty cast and a good share of snappy dialogue provide entertainment but can't make this pre-nuptials shindig quite the party that it might have been. show more

    Sometimes funny, sometimes shrill and wildly uneven, Bachelorette demonstrates film and television's continuing struggle to provide a platform for funny women in the realms of R-rated comedy and the tug-of-war between the desire to push boundaries and fears about likability. show more

    The characters in Bachelorette are most human when they're behaving badly. They break the spell when they turn into women we can merely relate to. show more

    The film is also less bloated than "Bridesmaids" - a comedy is always more nimble at 90 minutes than two hours - and it's less maudlin, too. It's the aberrant, foul-mouthed child of "Superbad" and "Young Adult." show more

    Dunst is the realest, rawest thing in the film. show more

    This nearly pitch-black comedy is better than its tiresome use of '90s pop references, no matter how much they illuminate what the gals bonded over back in the day. show more

    What's shocking is that anyone would find this film remotely funny or entertaining, The focus is 3 coke-snorting, insensitive, mean-spirited bridesmaids whose actions are distasteful and pathetic. There are no redeeming moments in this waste of time and money, so save yours and choose something worthwhile. One has to wonder what the critics who had anything good to say about this movie were smoking when they reviewed it. If only there was a way to give 0 stars.

    This is the worst movie I have seen in a really long time. I was shocked that such great actors would be apart of such a poorly written film. I thought I would at least get a laugh out of it but instead I couldnt wait for it to be over. Basicly they do cocaine, and make themselves throw up and have sex in bathrooms. I know a Bachelorette party is suppose to be crazy but I wouldve been okay with watching them get drunk and acting silly. I wouldnt waste an hour and a half on this film.
