I really liked Bridesmaids, well except for that section in the middle where it got so soppy that I developed a sudden urge to buy shoes and handbags just from watching it. Other than that though, it was a hilarious raunchy comedy and deservedly made crazy amounts of money at the Box Office.
Which of course meant that it was only a matter of time before somebody tried to rip it off. Our first contender would be Bachelorette, which, judging by it’s first very PG trailer, looked pretty lame. But now a red band trailer has been released and it’s amazing what a few fellatio jokes and some foul language can do for a film.
That is definitely a much better showing for the film, and not just because of all the vulgarity on display in this version of the trailer, but rather because unlike the first trailer, this one actually contained *gasp* funny jokes! I know, I know. Jokes in a comedy, whatever will they think of next?!
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 (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.
