You Again *Movie Review*

Movie Synopsis:

High school isn't for the faint of heart; You have your generalized clicks: The Jocks, The Geeks, The Cheerleaders, The Goths, and then you have those that don't belong to any group-Marni (Kirsten Bell) was one of those loaners.

Her high school nemesis, Joanna a.k.a JJ (Odette Yustman) on the other hand, was a cheerleader, and a mean one a that.

Marni remembers nothing but being tormented by Joanna, thus, having pretty scarring memories of those years.

Fast forward a few years-Marni is working at a prominent PR firm and is on the fast track to success with her high school years behind her. That is until she flies home for her brother, Will's (James Wolk), wedding to find out he's marrying the one and only Joanna o.O

To add more mayhem to the mix, Marni's mom, Gail (Jamie Lee Curtis), and Joanna's Aunt Romona (Sigourney Weaver) are old high school frienemies as well.

Chaos, one up-manship and coming to terms with the past ensue in this romantic comedy of 2011.

My Thoughts:

As soon as I saw Betty 'My God' White was apart of this movie, you KNOW I had to see it! I mean anything with The White in it is on my to-see list xD

My lovely sister was kind enough to rent it for me earlier this week when she stopped at a Redbox by our house because she knew I wanted to see it.

Needless to say, I was pretty excited!

Although, watching it, I was really not impressed in the least. Yes, it had a good plot and story and it had some A-list actors and actresses in it, but the movie was just very bland for my tastes. It wasn't as funny as I'd hoped it would be, and it was just very predictable in a non-entertaining kind of way.

I found my mind drifting to other things throughout the whole movie.

I think the best part of the whole thing WAS Betty White and her legendary acting talent. Oh, and of course Will's best friend, Charlie (Sean Wing) wasn't hard on the eyes if you know what I mean ;)

Either way, if you're into romantic comedies, or like any of the actors and actresses in the film, give it a watch and see what you think!

I had to include this picture because it's just AMAZING!

Haven't seen this one, but I agree that everything with Betty White in it is worth a shot :)

I love Kristin Chenoweth’s entrance for a simple dance class. Did you know she used to be an opera singer. I expected some kind of crazy when it comes to this movie. By the way, why in the world would anyone kick a pipe in order to get some earrings and not expect the water to come out or destroy the sink? Blockbuster was never my first choice in the past but since my free mail membership has come into my life I’m all for Blockbuster. I got it free with my new DISH Network employee account but it’s free for anyone too.
