trailer break: ‘You Again’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…


Grossout comedies for girls: it’s what the world has been demanding. Because The Sweetest Thing was such a huge hit, and audiences have been panting for more.

I can’t wait to see Betty White trash talk, and hopefully deploy a few choice vulgarities. It’s always hilarious when old ladies do things that old ladies in movies aren’t supposed to do. Hollywood can be so subversive!

Bitches be crazy! Wedding disasters are awesome! And everyone will be besties in the end! Awwww!

You Again opens in U.S. and Canada on September 24, and in the U.K. on November 12.

    Veronica Mars is hot.

    yeah, i am so over the naughty/grouchy old lady act. ooohhh…listen to the old person swear and talk about sex! isn’t it naughty??? big deal. my gram was doing that 30 years ago. let’s try something really rebellious and just have a fully realized older character. it can happen. even in a comedy.

    Let me guess: everything goes wrong for our heroines, until suddenly for no reason in the last third of the film everything goes right?

    I suppose I should be glad to see that Hollywood can treat men as dumb prizes to be “won” just as it treats women that way. Somehow I’m not.

    If this succeeds, it will be the template for “women’s films” for the next five years. If it fails, it will be cited as evidence that women don’t like to go to films.

    Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t see any humor of the grossout variety in this trailer. It looks more like simple farce/slapstick. I also have no clue where people are getting this men=prizes message from it.

    It looks harmless enough, I guess. Judging from the PG rating I doubt Betty White will be uttering many vulgarities, but old people smack talking is funny. It just is. Deal with it.

    Nate, the total lack of male characters doing anything other than stand around and look pretty seemed to me a bit of a giveaway. If the heroine’s brother were anything more than a plot token she might be able to talk to him rather than trying to make her high-school rival show her true colours.

    I don’t think the movie is so much about trying to get her rival to show her true colors as much as it is about having to adjust to her rival being part of her family now. Maybe I’m being naive, I don’t know.

  • Yet another Hollywood movie takes a cast most low-budget indie directors would kill for (Kristen Bell, Kristen Chenoweth, Sigourney Weaver, Victor Garber, Jamie Lee Curtis and Betty White) and wastes it on a plot that seems ripped-off from one of the lesser episodes of Ugly Betty. (Only without the irony of having Lindsay Lohan cast as a former high school cheerleader.) And I thought the series finale of Veronica Mars was depressing.

    Anyone want to bet that somebody will say the infamous quote “Get away from her, you bitch!” some time during the actual movie?
