Indie Gems: Bachelorette

Waking up after that long concert.
 
Becky (Rebel Wilson) is getting married. Regan (Kirsten Dunst) is not impressed. They've been friends since high school, and control freak Regan always thought she would get married first. They reunite for Becky's bachelorette party. There's the cynical Gena (Lizzy Caplan) who refuses to grow up. And the ditzy Katie (Isla Fisher) who to put it lightly is a complete fucking spaz. After a coke binge and some drinks, the three bridesmaids end up ruining Becky's wedding dress, and thus starts their long night trying to get it fixed.
 
Bachelorette definitely has some qualities I expected to hate. The typical "problem before the wedding but it will get solved just in time" has been done over and over again. But not by these three women. Though, at the beginning I had a hard time believing that these women would all be friends. You finally do see them come together. Really, they are perfect for each other.
 
The thing that stands out to me is the dialogue. It's vulgar, rapid fire, and completely suited for the night of shenanigans they're having. These girls are flawed, but that's what makes them interesting. There's so many great lines throughout. Frankly, a lot of people will compare this to Bridesmaids. (I did) In my opinion, this was far better.
