Bachelorette

3

Very bitter wedding cake

Despite the shot of adrenaline that Bridesmaids provided the genre, it’s hard to get excited about another female-centric comedy based around a wedding.

Yet Leslye Headland’s sharp and acerbic effort expands on the kind of toxic truths about female friendship that fuel HBO’s Girls – albeit without that show’s affection for its characters.

Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan go full-throttle as the poisonous bridesmaids tasked with keeping bride-to-be Rebel Wilson’s dress safe, and the result is an unapologetically savage guilty pleasure.
