Mini Movie Reviews: Bachelorette & Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

Regan is used to being first at everything. Imagine her horror and chagrin when she finds out the girl everyone called Pig Face in high school is going to tie the knot before she does!But Regan sucks it up and takes on bridesmaid duties along with her childhood pals: substance-abusing, promiscuous Gena and ditzy Katie.

The single ladies are determined to put their bitterness aside and have an awesomely hedonistic bachelorette party. Armed with acerbic wit and seemingly endless supplies of coke and booze, the foul-mouthed femmes embark on one very long and emotional night filled with major wedding-dress panic, various bodily fluids, and cute ex-boyfriends. Kirsten Dunst is consistently funny leading the talented cast, which includes the delightful scene stealer, Rebel Wilson, who plays Becky, a.k.a. Pig Face.

Adding to the tradition of successful bridal comedies, this debut feature by writer/director Leslye Headland is a sassy and sometimes romantic ride that never forgets to celebrate the complexities of female friendship.

Seriously, i don't even know why i watched the movie. From the trailer you could understand was something like a copy of the Bridesmaids, a movie i did not like. Anyway, i watched this one. I can say it was bad. Really bad. The storyline is boring. The movie is not funny. And except of Rebel Wilson, the rest of the acting was horrible. I couldn't stand watching Kristen Dunst and Isha Fisher. Skip it if you can.

 Taking audiences on a humorous, moving, and intimate journey against an epic backdrop of Earth's final days, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Lorene Scafaria (Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist). Set in a too-near future where time at once stands still and is slipping away forever, the writer/director explores what people will do and how they will feel when humanity's end is near.

I watched this movie because i confused it with "The End of World" which unfortunately is not out yet.  Either way, this one is supposed to be a comedy too. I don't remember laughing at all. Not even once. It was way too predictable and Steve Carell was "nah". I found he had no connection with Keira. On the other hand Keira Knightley was a really interesting and cute character and seemed like she was feeling her role.

  1. I really liked Seeking a Friend for the End of the World because it was really sweet and thoughtful. It is mostly a romantic comedy, but they do tread into pretty deep waters with everyone confronting their mortality. I only recently heard about it from a coworker at DISH, and it looked like a cute movie so I decided to rent it through my Blockbuster @Home account. It was a really interesting watch that presented many different ways that people could react to the apocalypse. I love renting quirky little movies like this because sometimes they are really great, but I couldn’t afford to go out and buy everyone to test it out. I recommend watching it with someone special because it is all about how good relationships are what this life is about.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
