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 (Rebel Wilson) set to marry her handsome sweetheart, Dale (Hayes MacArthur), the remaining members of her high school clique reunite for one last bachelorette bacchanal in the Big Apple. Regan (Kirsten Dunst) is an overachieving, ueber-Maid of Honor who's secretly smarting over the fact that she's not the first to marry, while Gena (Lizzy Caplan) is a whip-smart sarcastic who's actually a closet romantic, and Katie… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The women's dialogue is pungently ribald but diffuse; too often, shouting and shrieking and gesticulating take the place of engaged performance."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"I don't see why women being as slobby and gross as the guys is such a feminist breakthrough -- especially since, as in Bachelorette, the slobbiness and grossness is witless."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Bachelorette strives to recapture the close-to-the-knuckle comic mayhem that made Bridesmaids a surprise hit, but the essential sweetness that underpinned the earlier film's gross-out gags is sadly lacking."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Give me a nice Audrey Hepburn film any day."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Not good."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"A nasty little piece of work -- a phrase I use not with contempt but with grudging admiration."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"As smart and popreferential as Headland's writing is, it's a little underwhelming when it comes to delivering on laughs."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"The edginess is just window dressing. The message is as schmaltzy as anything you'd find in a kooky rom-com."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"Retains that edge regularly removed from more commercially amenable comedies, and the cast make merry-ish ..."
‑ Mike McCahill, Guardian
"It flips in and out of its tone too many times. Nevertheless it does have a sourness and a wretchedness that make some moments startlingly real and vivid."
‑ Antonia Quirke, Financial Times
"Its actresses - particularly Dunst - are terrific. Headland has a nice feel for music, too, and takes some editing risks."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"It's a sour, only fitfully funny affair, wasting the abilities of its otherwise talented cast, which includes Kirsten Dunst, James Marsden, Adam Scott and Isla Fisher."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Bachelorette is very much its own bitter brew, using the comic framework of a botched, coke-fuelled hen night to examine the stinging self-loathing exposed in three women by another's happiest day."
‑ Guy Lodge, This is London
"Gleefully caustic comedy that sticks an elbow in the face of the usual chick flick conventions ..."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"It cuts to the quick with toxic glee, confronting us with a trio of the worst friends you could possibly want at your wedding."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
