Bachelorette movie scene

Rebel Wilson (bottom) shares a laugh--and gets laughed at--with (l. to r.) Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Kirsten Dunst in Bachelorette.

Kirsten Dunst (All Good Things), Isla Fisher (Rango), Lizzy Caplan (Hot Tub Time Machine) and Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect) star in the mean-tongued comedy film Bachelorette, written and directed by Leslye Headland, on whose acclaimed Off-Broadway play the film is based.

Bachelorette follows three frisky bridesmaids who, on the night before an old friend’s wedding go searching for a little fun. When it comes to raucous, raunchy and riotously inappropriate pre-wedding behavior, why should guys have all the fun? Control freak Regan (Dunst), smart-mouthed Gena (Caplan) and bubble-headed Katie (Fisher) celebrate the impending nuptials of their longtime, high school whipping girl Becky (Wilson) in an epic girls’ night out filled with strip clubs, ex-boyfriends, drugs, sex, and innumerable unmentionables (among them, the destruction of Becky’s wedding dress).

As for the guys, the cast also includes Adam Scott (Piranha) and James Marsden (Straw Dogs).

The first multi-platform film to hit #1 on iTunes, as well as the highest ranking performer on Rentrak, having reached the #4 spot amongst Cable Providers, Bachelorette has grossed in excess of $7 million thus far on VOD. The R-rated comedy also grossed some $450,000 at the box office upon its limited release to U.S. theaters in September, 2012.

The Bachelorette discs include the following bonus features:

-Commentary by writer /director Leslye Headland
-Behind-the-Scenes featurette
