Back in high school, Regan (Kristen Dunst), Gena (Lizzy Caplan) and Katie (Isla Fisher) used to call plus-size Becky (Rebel Wilson) Pig Face and taunt her mercilessly. Fast-forward over a decade and – as overachieving Regan is shocked to learn – it turns out that Becky will be the first of their group to get married. In fact, Becky just got engaged to a wealthy New Yorker, and she has asked Regan to serve as the Maid of Honor and the other two friends to join the wedding party as bridesmaids.
In The Bachelorette, this trio of dysfunctional ladies is determined to put their jealousy aside, celebrate Becky’s good fortune, and do some heavy bachelorette party partying. They’ve been friends forever. But will their friendship survive the night? Becky insists on keeping the party tame, because “I’m not a big partier any more.” But promiscuous, substance-abusing Gena has already started partying before the night begins and ditzy Katie has her head in the clouds. When Regan, Gena and Katie proceed with an after-hours celebration of their own, a mishap with the wedding dress sends the entire evening spiraling out of control.
The Weinstein Company has scheduled The Bachelorette for a limited release on September 7, 2012. The comedy was directed and written by Leslye Headland, and also stars James Marsden, Adam Scott and Kyle Bornheimer.
