“Bachelorette” is a 2012 black comedy film directed and written by Leslye Headland. The film stars Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, and Isla Fisher as three former high school friends who reunite for the wedding of a fourth friend, Becky (Rebel Wilson), who they used to make fun of in school.
The night before the wedding, the three friends – Regan (Dunst), Gena (Caplan), and Katie (Fisher) – get drunk and accidentally ruin Becky’s wedding dress. They then embark on a chaotic and wild night in New York City, trying to fix the dress and salvage the wedding, while dealing with their own personal issues and resentments towards each other.
As the night progresses, the three friends confront their own issues and secrets, including Regan’s control issues, Gena’s drug addiction and self-destructive behavior, and Katie’s fear of commitment and lack of direction in life.
“Bachelorette” received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising the performances of the cast and the film’s dark humor, while others criticized the characters’ unlikeability and the film’s lack of originality compared to other raunchy female-driven comedies. Despite the mixed reception, the film gained a cult following and became a sleeper hit, grossing over $11 million worldwide.
