Will “The Bachelorette Party” Be The Female Version Of “The Hangover”?
Thank you for listening to us, Hollywood — The Frisky asked for a female version of “The Hangover” and you delivered. Sort of. See, neither Jennifer Garner, as the uptight bride-to-be, nor Anna Faris, as the cousin who was recently left at the altar and is now forced to throw someone else’s bachelorette party, were exactly what we had in mind. From what we can tell from MTV.com’s synopsis, their characters don’t really like each other; when Garner gets wasted and cheats on her groom-to-be, Faris debates telling him all about it. This woman-versus-woman “You’re getting married! I’m not! You bitch!” shtick is way overdone. It sounds more like “Bride Wars” than a female version of “The Hangover“! We’ll reserve our judgment until after seeing the actual film. But, considering the script is being written by the same person who wrote “The House Bunny” and “The Ugly Truth,” our expectations for non-suckiness are l-o-w. [MTV]
