So, what’s on the checklist for expoitable genres in Hollywood? Well Dracula has a half dozen projects focusing on his quest for some A+ blood, fairy tales are being spun into all new directions and buddy cop films are somehow still around.
So that just leaves bridal comedies, a burgeoning new sub-genre, with the next salvo in this arsenal being fired by Bacholerette.
Featuring Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, Adam Scott, James Marsden, Rebel Wilson and Kyle Bornheimer, the movie follows the events of Rebel Wilson, a lady about to be married. Gasp!
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, uber-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 (Isla Fisher) is a ditzy beauty who loves the good life.
But when Becky insists on keeping the bachelorette party tame, the women proceed with an after-hours celebration of their own.
Cue naughty behaviour, confessions, fights and girls gone wild in a PG manner. It’s out in September, this year, in US cinemas, with no solid local release date yet.
