You Again

Rated 1.0

Yet another stink bomb starring the appealing Kristen Bell. Reuniting with her Reefer Madness director Andy Fickman, Bell plays Marni, a girl who learns that Joanna (Odette Yustman), the girl who terrorized her in high school, is marrying her brother (James Wolk). The twist: Joanna doesn’t seem to remember Marni. The second twist: Joanna’s Aunt Ramona (Sigourney Weaver) was the high school nemesis of Gail (Jamie Lee Curtis), Marni’s mom. One would think that this cast would be able to bring the funny, but Fickman’s tone deaf direction makes them look like amateurs. Even Betty White looks bad and lost as Marni’s grandma, reduced to denture jokes. Having just rewatched Forgetting Sarah Marshall on TV, I stand convinced that Bell is capable of good things. So far, 2010 has offered no support of this gut feeling of mine.
