Bachelorette

Now Playing Synopsis: Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan star in this comedy about three dysfunctional friends who attempt to leave the past behind while serving as bridesmaids at the wedding of a woman they mocked mercilessly back in high school. As teenagers, Regan (Dunst), Gena (Caplan), and Katie (Fisher) used to call Becky (Rebel Wilson) "Pig Face." Years later, Becky is about to tie the knot and asks her taunting former classmates to join the wedding party. And though Regan is determined to give Becky the ultimate bachelorette bash, tart-tongued Gena has already started partying hard well before the big night, and capricious Katie seems to have her head stuck in the clouds. Later, as the ladies cut loose and the booze begins to flow, a mishap with the wedding dress sends the entire event spiraling out of control, leading to a wild night of debauchery that nobody will ever forget. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, James Marsden, Adam Scott Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Adam and Eden have been in love since they were teenagers, yet the rules that govern both of their worlds make their romance strictly forbidden. Beset by interplanetary border-patrol agents during one of their clandestine meetings on the mountains where their two worlds meet, Adam watches in horror as Eden appears to perish before his eyes. Ten years later, Adam learns that Eden survived the fall on that fateful day, and now works in the towering skyscraper that connects their two planets. Determined to declare his love for Eden even in the face of certain death, Adam hatches a daring plan to enter her world and challenge the unjust laws that regulate both of their lives. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Kirsten Dunst, Jim Sturgess, Timothy Spall Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
