It's not going to be for everyone, but I really got into Leslye Headland's "Bachelorette" at last night's premiere.  A sort of "Bridesmaids" meets "Mean Girls" by way of John Hughes, its darker and more cynical than I expected (though honestly my major complaint is that it wasn't quite dark enough). It's also probably going to offend or at least put off a lot of folks (and did last night), particularly those outside the demographic the film is significantly geared toward (gays and gals in their 20s). But I actually found it depressingly authentic in its unlikeable characters, and felt that its entire cast - Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzie Caplan and breakout Rebel Wilson - were across the board stellar. Wilson was also fucking hilarious on stage afterwards at a rather riotous Q&A, the entire video from which is available below:
