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.

Christian Science Monitor

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.

The comedy's anarchic tone is refreshing but it leaves little room for heart. You'll laugh, but you might feel a bit hollow inside.

Dana Stevens

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.

Bridesmaids it's not.

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

Michael O'Sullivan
Washington Post

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.

We always want women behaving badly, don't we? And damn, are Dunst and Co. good at it.

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

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
