Happy Friday! As three post college grads, we are constantly trying to find ways of entertaining ourselves on a budget…which led us to three pretty serious Netflix addictions. Netflix never fails to feed our addiction for finding movies we’ve never heard of, or filling our need to binge watch shows we missed or just want to relive.
Each week, RPW will be posting about their Netflix finds. We hope you enjoy!
This weeks recommendation: Bachelorette
Bachelorette is a dark comedy, like a dark, dark comedy. It’s the kind of movie where you can’t really believe all this stuff is happening, but you can’t look away because you need to know how it ends. It’s kind of like a car crash.
The movie follows four best friends from high school. You have Regan (Kirsten Dunst, the neurotic, control freak), Becky (Rebel Wilson, the “fat friend”), Gena (Lizzy Caplan, the one still hung up on her high school ex and cynical about it), and Katie (Isla Fisher, the rowdy party girl). When Becky announces she’s getting married to the perfect guy, Dale (Hayes MacArthur) all the other girls are dumbfounded. They wallow in self-pity for a while but decide to use the wedding as a celebratory reunion and after Becky goes to bed the mayhem begins. Drunk and high, the three accidentally rip the dress. The rest of the night is about getting the dress fixed and the trouble they get into along the way.
This movie is not Bridesmaids. It puts Bridesmaids to shame. Definitely give it a watch if you’re down in the dumps and want a confidence boost. At least you’re not Katie.
