Bachelorette (2012)

bachelorette_xxlg

Three friends are asked to be bridesmaids at a wedding of a woman they used to ridicule back in high school. (Letterboxd)
Really hard to enjoy, thanks to unlikeable main characters, uninteresting hijinks, and distasteful attempts at humour. It seems to be a problem in tone management though, because underneath its sickening candy comedy shell is a rather intriguing web of dark character drama (see the eating disorder cover-up, drug addiction, and tale of a suicide attempt). The overdose to ambulance ride sequence feels like it finds the right groove but it’s overshadowed by a shallow shrug-it-off ending.
5.5/10 (Poor)
