This red band trailer for Bachelorette is way better than the green band Bridesmaids rip-off
I really liked BRIDESMAIDS and knew that it would spawn a slew of cut-rate imitators. A couple of weeks ago, we brought you the first trailer for BACHELORETTE which felt like a rip-off to the point of even casting BRIDESMAIDS costar Rebel Wilson. I shook my head, lamenting another crappy Hollywood carbon copy.
But now we have the red band trailer for the movie and I found that the culprit was not movie studio greed but rather awful editing of a trailer. This new trailer is funny, dark, and shares the most important trait that BRIDESMAIDS had: women are f**king funny, too.
Plot: 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.
Kirsten Dunst looks better than she has in awhile, Isla Fisher talking about her tits is okay with me, and Lizzy Caplan telling a schlubby Horatio Sanz that she will blow him gives hope to us all. Add to that Adam Scott and James Marsden and you have the makings of a quality comedy that follows BRIDESMAIDS lead instead of copying it.
BACHELORETTE hits on demand August 10th and theaters September 7th.
