Timing is everything. It doesn’t seem to matter much that BACHELORETTE was first staged as an Off-Brodway play back in 2010. Every — and I mean every — review of BACHELORETTE compares it to BRIDESMAIDS, last year’s runaway smash hit (and now Oscar-nominated smash hit) about the wacky misadventures of a crazed bridal party. When you hear what it’s about — the wacky (and kinda druggy) misadventures of a crazed (and kinda mean) bridal party — the comparison makes sense. But that doesn’t necessarily make it any more fair.
Pretty ladies making funny faces. That’s what happens when director Leslye Headland brings her BACHELORETTEs by for a chat. If these photos are any clue, the movie is going to be hysterical.
No, Faces of Rejected Bachelorettes is not an antonomasia for the upcoming rom com BACHELORETTE starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan (Party Down crush!) and premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Instead, FoRB is actually devoted to one of my shameful, guilty pleasures: Hi, my name is Matt and I’m addicted to the mainstream pop culture television phenomenon The Bachelor, which has had a rousing start to its new season.
Though Lars von Trier’s MELANCHOLIA doesn’t come out in wide release until November 11, 2011, the anticipation for his seemingly more accessible follow-up to 2009′s ANTICHRIST is mounting. (For me, it’s the combination of the end-of-the-world theme/people looking up at outer space in wonder, the mystery of melancholia and my girl crush, Charlotte Gainsbourg.)
In case you have no idea what movie I’m talking about:
