    I’m totally with you. I rate movies on how much I want to see them after I see them the first time. Do I feel like I can’t wait to see it again? No. But would I watch it again? Yeah. I laughed REALLY hard at some parts… but everything else was just… filler? I don’t know, I can’t explain it.

    I have to say I agree, but I know there were times that I coudln’t stop smiling, other times it was like watching a train wreck and it was SO awkward that it was uncomfortable to watch.  I will say I have NEVER laughed so much that I cried, and this movie made me do it .

    I was totally disappointed. I’d say the first 90 minutes of the movie was just a waste, but the last 30 minutes were decent. I wouldn’t go out of my way to watch it again, but if it was on and nothing else was, I’d maybe give it another shot.

    I said I loved it b/c I did laugh my ass off, but the part that bugged me was the whole cliched baking metaphor.

    The hubbs summed it up like this: “So, what they’re trying to say is, you’re not a REAL woman until you start baking?”

    and I thought it pretty much copied the Save the Last Dance scenario of “I’ll never do *insert activity here* again…” and of course they end up finding their “identity” by doing whatever that activity was, and it’s supposed to be so damn symbolic.

    but the jokes were good! and really, we all know a Helen whom we’d like to drop kick into a sewage tank, so at least it was identifiable in that aspect.

    The opening sex scene was SO AKWARD. Parts of it were hysterical but it was a bit too long for me. I got bored after a while.

    I loved it for the most part…

    If it would have been shorter cutting out some of the more dramatic scenes and focusing on the funny it would have been more like what it was aiming to be… “The Hangover”

    Better luck next time.

    That bathroom scene with the food poisoning… that was freaking hilarious however… haven’t laughed that hard in a few years… =D

    @bind9449: Ditto. I think I went into it expecting more, though. My expectations were too high.

    I loved it.  I haven’t laughed that hard or that much in a very long time.  And I don’t think the baking thing was cheesy – I definitely didn’t get some sexist “women need to bake” metaphor from it either, I think that’s a stretch.  I went expecting to laugh a lot, and that’s exactly what I got.  No disappointment here.

    It was okay.  I was hoping for much, much more – comparing it to The Hangover was NOT an accurate description, IMO.  I’m actually not super sure why it was rated R?  The sex? The language?  I guess….

    The airplane scene was my favorite.  I didn’t get why the police officer/crush had an accent.  I realize many have accents but it distracted me.  Loved Kristen Wiig, not such a fan of Maya Rudolph in this.  Wish it was less chick-flicky.  Laughed my ass off when she opened the invitation and a butterfly flew out.  LOVED the puppies and the fact that the sister took 9 home.

    I thought it was a cute movie. I won’t lie, I was expecting MORE funny, and I was hoping to see a hot man or two at the bachelorette party, but what can you do?

    I thought Kristen Wiig was amazing. She was believable throughout, and I hope it opens up her career options to bigger and better things. I think my favorite part was when she was trying to get the cop’s attention by doing all kinds of illegal things on the road. She’s hilarious. 🙂

    I loved most of it (“loved it” was my vote).  All of the intentionally funny parts were hilarious.  The cast worked really well together.

    – But- The middle of the movie was too chick flicky for me.  It’s like “ok, we get it, your life is falling apart, do we really need to see you continue to be depressed for another hour? Oh, and be nice to that police guy, he’s obviously awesome.  And stop pretending you’re in a romantic comedy.”

    Thought it was totally advertised falsely. I was expecting the female version of “The Hangover” and it didn’t even come close. I thought it would essentially be about the group of them, when all it really focused on was Kristin Wig’s character’s life.

    I said in another thread that the saving grace of this moview as Melissa McCarthy – without her, this movie would’ve been a flop.

    So disappointing.
