Bachelorette - VOD

Mike: There's often a reason that films go the VOD route. Sadly, Bachelorette is no Margin Call. To me it seemed that Bachelorette couldn't really make up its mind on whether it was an outright comedy or an indie dramedy, resulting in something that had funny moments and even some poignant scenes but was ultimately uneven. It boasts some good performances from Lizzy Caplan, Kirsten Dunst and Adam Scott, but one of the problems is that most of the characters aren't likeable.

Erica: This was not a super memorable movie. I wasn't thrilled by this movie at all. It was alright, not great. To me, it seemed like they were just trying to cash in on the success of Bridesmaids. Even though I did not like Bridesmaids it was an original and fresh idea with a cast of comedic women front and center. Bacheloreete was just a mess and wasn't even really that great of a movie. I didn't really care what happened to anybody. It wasn't as raunchy as Bridesmaids or The Hangover even though it tried to be. It even had the token fat girl like in Bridesmaids. I say skip this movie in favor of something that will actually make you laugh.
