iTunes persuaded us to rent and watch this one because it proclaimed that it was in the cinemas and available to rent at the same time, which is a BIG DEAL. That wasn’t a lie, but it’s slightly less impressive than we might have thought because it’s only in selected cinemas and as far as I can tell, none of the big ones. But still, the film looked okay and with a bit of wine, we were good to go.
2:02 – That’s Mr C! Don’t bother with the dessert menu, I already know I want cheesecake.
10:09 – It’s bad when you have to tell an adult to use their indoor voice.
13:12 – I just have such a problem with MJ, and it’s Spiderman scripts fault, not hers.
14:42 – “Wait, I took French?”
23:18 – My favourite of the bachelorettes keeps changing. At the moment, it’s with Isla Fisher.
24:42 – I’ve seen that rip at least twice in the trailer but it makes me gasp every time.
31:04 – “You’re being nice and it’s scaring me, what do you need?”
35:40 – I’m not so sure that asking for the parameters is the way to start a lap dance.
39:28 – Woah, complicated politics in the midst of all this fun and games.
45:57 – Love that he put her in the door of the limo and she popped out the roof.
54:08 – I’d be mad if someone threw my phone out of a window, too.
54:53 – She ruined the moment by having to pop to the loo, that never happens in the movies!
57:49 – Aww, mixtape. Actual cassette player and everything.
59:41 – “There’s drunk going on…”
1:06:38 – She’s putting an amazing brave face on it, but she’s going to crack at some point.
1:13:40 – “Isn’t that dress supposed to be…”
1:17:09 – I can’t imagine how gross those two are. Been up all night, no showers, etc, etc.
1:18:57 – I like toasting a bottle, a phone and a cigarette.
We thought this was going to be like Bridesmaids, and although it seemed like a mashup of that and The Hangover, it wasn’t really the rip-off we anticipated. It was actually quite funny in places, and although the story had a bit of a sickly ending, it was good to journey with these not-all-that-likeable characters as they navigated the tricky waters of friendships and reunions and moving on.
