Consensus: It has its moments, but Bachelorette ultimately plays it too safe with its trio of unlikable leads, betraying them with a predictably sentimental final act that undermines the bracingly honest humor preceding it.

Richard Brody
New Yorker

The women's dialogue is pungently ribald but diffuse; too often, shouting and shrieking and gesticulating take the place of engaged performance.

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.

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.

A nasty little piece of work -- a phrase I use not with contempt but with grudging admiration.

As smart and popreferential as Headland's writing is, it's a little underwhelming when it comes to delivering on laughs.

The edginess is just window dressing. The message is as schmaltzy as anything you'd find in a kooky rom-com.

Its actresses - particularly Dunst - are terrific. Headland has a nice feel for music, too, and takes some editing risks.

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.

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.

Kind of disappointing. I didn't hate it, but for a comedy, it was low on laughs. I think the only even vaguely likeable one out of the three girls was Isla… More

'Bachelorette'. Cliched, enjoyable fare ruined every time Rebel Wilson opened her mouth with that terrible U.S. accent #FemaleSamWorthington

This is probably what The Hangover would have been like had it been made using female characters. A raunchy version of Bridesmaids that is dirtier, more… More
