Why you should be excited: When Bridesmaids hit theaters last summer, the marketing team behind it wisely, though not accurately, sold the comedy as “the female Hangover.” Anyone who’s seen Kristen Wiig’s standout movie knows that’s bogus, of course, especially now that there legitimately is an estrogen-powered answer to the Wolf Pack: Bachelorette, a raunchy, night-before-the-wedding romp led by the enticing trio of Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan.
An alternate title for this one could be Women Behaving Badly, as the reviews that have surfaced thus far point out that its character’s antics make those dudes from The Hangover look like a bunch of inexperienced squares. Caplan, for instance, plays a neurotic and high-strung headcase who’s none too shy about discussing her oral sex skills; Fisher, meanwhile, plays her suicidal friend who snorts more cocaine than Tony Montana. Granted, Bachelorette sounds a bit too overboard for its own good, but anything has to be better than The Hangover Part II, right?
