Interview: Bachelorette Writer-Director Leslye Headland

Sure, “Bachelorette” is fiction, but after sitting down with writer-director Leslye Headland, it’s quite clear that the film is as vivacious as it is because of the honest chemistry between her cast and because of her fun-loving and spunky attitude,

The film stars Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher as Regan, Gena and Katie, a trio with a friendship dating way back to high school. The ladies may be all grown up, but when they reunite for Becky’s (Rebel Wilson) wedding, immaturity and irresponsibility take over; they indulge in way too much coke, rip Becky’s wedding dress and have to spend the entire night before the wedding trying to clean up their mess.

The behavior in “Bachelorette” is outrageous and deplorable, but downright hilarious and Headland knows it. Thrilled with her incredible cast, there was no way Headland would let the immense success of “Bridesmaids” rain on her parade, she stuck to her guns and delivered exactly what she intended to – a fun film well worth repeat viewings.

Check out everything Headland had to say about bringing “Bachelorette” to life in the roundtable interview below and be sure to catch the film in theaters, on VOD or on iTunes now.

Review: Bachelorette

A female-driven comedy called “Bachelorette.” It’s got to be like “Bridesmaids,” right? Far from it. Think “Bridesmaids,” but turn the poop to vomit, up the alcohol intake, darken the sense of humor, give Rebel Wilson an American accent and sprinkle some coke on top. That’s “Bachelorette.”

Becky may have been dubbed Pig Face in high school, but she’s getting married before all her friends, and to a nice, successful and good-looking guy, too! Having always gone to the gym, Reagan’s (Kirsten Dunst) quite jealous, but she’s got to suck it up and be a good friend because she’s Becky’s maid of honor. Katie (Isla Fisher) takes a break from bopping around in a fashionista delusion to fly in for the festivities as does Gena (Lizzy Caplan), who’s still coping with her breakup with Clyde (Adam Scott), smoking up a storm and indulging in whatever will make the pain go away.

Back together in the Big Apple, Reagan, Katie and Gena are determined to make their best friend’s wedding a truly special day. Trouble is, snorting a pile of coke isn’t on Becky’s agenda, nor a part of her lifestyle anymore, and when Gena and Katie get out of control, Becky calls it a night. Rather than try to patch things up, Gena, Katie and Reagan continue the party themselves, getting so drunk and high, they decide it’s a good idea to squeeze two people in Becky’s wedding dress. A little stain here, a big rip there and they’ve got one night to get things back in order so Becky can walk down the aisle in her dress.

Interview: Bachelorette’s Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan

“Bachelorette” stars Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and Lizzy Caplan as Regan, Katie and Gena, a trio coming together for their friend Becky’s (Rebel Wilson) wedding. You’d think it’d be a simple process – rehearsal dinner, bachelorette party, wake up, get dressed, walk down the aisle – but thanks to some very poor decision making and a ton of cocaine, the ladies descend into pre-wedding madness, desperately trying to tame their high and fix the mistakes they made so Becky can have the wedding of her dreams.

Really, “Bachelorette” is one of those you’ve-got-to-see-it-to-believe-it type of things and, you know what? So is this roundtable interview. The ladies came to New York City to support the film’s September 7th release and while they had a slew of insightful thoughts on the nature of the material and the process of making “Bachelorette,” just like in the movie, the three actresses have an electric chemistry that sparks quite a bit of humor. Read on to get all of the details and a taste of their hilarious banter, and be sure to catch “Bachelorette” in theaters or on VOD today!

‘ParaNorman’ and Cheesy Sports Stories Lead the Best and Worst Movie Promos of the Week

You know what’s better than a week’s worth of promotional material with three pieces deserving Best Stuff honors? Even more than three that deliver big time.

Sure, there’s some concern that Man of Steel might end up being a typical Zack Snyder production with all mesmerizing visuals and little in the story department, but even if that’s the case it still makes for two impressive trailers. We’ve also got a nice collection of material fromThe Bourne Legacy, with some clips to be exact. While the film is geared towards folks looking for a hefty dose of action, the talk-heavy “Sin Eater” and “Name” clips certainly resonate more than the other snippets we’ve seen thus far. We’ve also got a clip from Step Up Revolution, and in an obvious and appropriate move, the film’s marketing team dishes out one of the film’s prime mass-dance sequences.

Want to ditch the action and dancing in exchange for a laugh? I’m almost embarrassed to admit it, but the potty humor in this restricted clip for The Campaign is actually kind of hilarious. And while this outtake reel for The Watch is more of a montage of scenes from the film than actual outtakes, some of it is worth a watch as Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and my new favorite, Richard Ayoade, certainly know how to earn an unscripted laugh.
