Oh My God! It must be said here…this story is full of a single word: meanness, it’s very complex see what the filmakers try to sell you here, that 4 real friends can be so petty between them. Bachelorette can be described as a wolf in sheep’s clothing, offers you at first view a light comedy but it has very few of it: it’s a film quite bluntly, in fact presents us selfish, petty, dislocated people, drug addicts, among others. This does not really represent a problem, it is a portrait of a possible reality, but certainly surprises.
The performances are fine, everybody play an adjusted rol: Kirsten Dunst is the leader of the group of friends, the actress is constantly dancing on the dividing thin line between being a complete harpy and a good friend. Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan interpret very similar roles of unsafe sybarites, the difference lies in the fact that while one is bright, cheerful the other is dark and indecisive.
Honestly, Zerorojo doesn’t recommend it: it is a film that does not make greater contribution to the cinema or the people. It does not shine by any side: nor in technical terms, nor in the music, nor in the script…nothing. But, of course, if you want to see how is the behave of the worst friends, this may be a good choice. In any case there are better movies to see.
