you again

the lowdown: As a teenager, Marni (Kirsten Bell) was tormented by Joanna (Odette Yustman) the head cheerleader. Years later, she’s a successful woman with a great job at as a PR executive. When she heads home for her brother’s (James Wolk) wedding and discovers that he is about to marry the girl who bullied her in high school, she sets out to expose the fiancee’s true colours.

what's the buzz?: The movie has a great female cast. Kristen Bell’s performance as the pimply face teenage girl with low self esteem, who wanted to get revenge on the mean girl was right on the mark. Odette Yustman as her rival was also quite good. Even the supporting cast was superb in each of their roles and brought something different to the table.

what's the fuzz?: The story itself is relatively predictable, and the direction, while competent, is nothing special.

roundup: It has laughs for all ages thanks to the great casting of its cast. Kristen Bell, Odette Yustman, Sigourney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis act brilliantly opposite each other.

rating: popcorn fluff
