Yeah, yeah, shades of Bridesmaids. But this is darker and meaner and has a really strong cast: Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, and Isla Fisher star as a trio of horrible, horrible women whose ex-hot friend (Rebel Wilson) gets married, and the three reluctantly? bitchily? go along for the ride. Hilarity ensues — or, at least, that’s the idea.
Kyle Bornheimer, Hayes MacArthur, James Marsden, and Adam Scott star in writer-director Leslye Headland’s film, which opens on September 7th after a VOD premier in August.
The synopsis (much of which you can pick up from the trailer) follows, after the break:
On the night before an old friend’s wedding, three frisky bridesmaids go searching for a little fun but find much more than they bargained for. With lovely Becky (Rebel Wilson) set to marry her handsome sweetheart, Dale (Hayes MacArthur), the remaining members of her high school clique reunite for one last bachelorette bacchanal in the Big Apple. Regan (Kirsten Dunst) is an overachieving, ueber-Maid of Honor who’s secretly smarting over the fact that she’s not the first to marry, while Gena (Lizzy Caplan) is a whip-smart sarcastic who’s actually a closet romantic, and Katie (Isla Fisher) is a ditzy beauty who loves the good life. But when Becky insists on keeping the bachelorette party tame, the women proceed with an after-hours celebration of their own.
