You Again - Should be called 27 Dresses Again

You Again

Starring -
Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars, When in Rome)
Odette Annable
Jamie Lee Curtis
Sigourni Weaver
Betty White
Cloris Leachman
Kristen Chenoweth

The best parts:
Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourni Weaver share grudges dating back to high school. It is hilarious to see these women act so petty and angry!

Betty White and Cloris Leachman also share an old grudge. They are even more hilarious and share the funniest lines in the movie. "Who dressed you, the depression?" and "Sorry I you couldn't make your funeral last year."

Movies like this are notorious for having a cute idea and not knowing how to turn it into a cute movie. This movie is dreadful. The notion is that Kristen Bell is unpopular in high school (apparently her personality rocks, but she has bangs, zits and glasses so the entire student body consorts together to make her life a living HE-double hockey sticks.) Well, 8 years later her older brother's getting married to the Queen Bee, Odette Annable. Turns out, Odette's character hasn't changed much. Meanwhile, Kristen Bell's mom, Jamie Lee Curtis, is reunited with Odette Annable's aunt, Sigourni Weaver and awkwardness ensues. At the rehearsal dinner, (just as in 27 Dresses) Kristen Bell, (the maid-of-honor,) shows a video that depicts Odette Annable as the monster she is. The only problem is, after this is all over, Odette Annable cries a little, Kristen Bell forgives her, and the marriage happens. What kind of lesson is that for mean girls? Just cry and you'll get your way? And how come Kristen Bell couldn't have a major/hilarious character flaw that makes her unpopular? Come on!!!!
