For Marnie (Kristen Bell), high school was a horror movie, and her brother’s wedding is the sequel when her archrival comes back to haunt her as his bride. Its nice girl versus mean girl in this hysterical reunion with the one person Marnie would really like to forget. And if that weren’t enough, Marnie’s mom (Jamie Lee Curtis) reunites with her own high school nemesis (Sigourney Weaver). Complete with hilarious, never-before-seen bonus material, You Again is one crazy comedy that’ll keep you laughing again and again.
The basis of the story, a girl getting picked up by her high school classmates and the way it effects the rest of her life, is very believable. I was that one girl in high school, so I was totally able to relate. I loved Kristen Bell as Marnie, the girl who moved away from her hometown because of the misery classmates caused her. Riding high from a promotion, she returns home a gorgeous successful woman for her brother’s wedding, only to discover that her brother (James Wolk) is marrying Joanna – “the warden”, the cheerleader that led the other girls in picking on her. Marnie feels it’s her responsibility to protect her brother, who believes that Joanna (Odette Yustman) is a kind and charitable person. Marnie seems to find no support from family in her attempts to expose her nemesis. Little does she know that her own mother had a rivalry of sorts, with Joanna’s Aunt Ramona (Sigourney Weaver). One calamity after another occurs, one being a run in with bees that leaves Marnie looking just like she did in high school. Marnie plots Joanna’s downfall, timed to happen at the wedding. Will the wedding go off as planned? You’ll have to watch it for yourself to find out the ending but I can tell you that Marnie’s father (Victor Garber) ends up grounding Marnie and her mom and sending them to their rooms. We laughed a lot and really enjoyed this movie.
Here’s a clip from the movie called “Same Dress”.
