Reel Weekends #2 – You Again

There are some movies of Kristen Bell that I like and mostly are comedy. I think she is good in comedy movies but there was this one drama movie of her when she was a little bit younger that I like too. Anyway, You again is another

You Again with stars Kristen Bell and Odette Yustman as well as Jamie Lee Curtis, Sigourney Weaver, Betty White and also Kristin Chenoweth. It’s a very female-centric comedy, the reunion of the high school nemesis.

Marni had worst high school experience getting bullied by cheer leader Joanna. She became a very successful PR in New York at present. When she found out that her brother will be marrying to her high school nemesis, she tried so to stop the wedding. Joanna on the other was so in love with Will and will do everything she can to have his family like her. She remembered Marni but pretended not to recognized her in high school as she did not want to get haunted by the mean JJ from the past. The movie gets getting better when JJ introduced her aunt Ramona who was Gail Byer (marni’s mom) nemesis in high school. So the competition arise betweem Ramona and Gail, Marni and Joanna. Until everything was out of control and during the engagement a time capsule that supposed to be a secret and not be seen was out. In that time capsule showed the meanest side of Joanna and she made Marni’s life a hell back in high school. Well, all movies should have a happy ending. The movie ended when Joanna introduced Marni’s Grandma Bunny to Grandma Helen who also was a nemesis during their high school time. So the famous line all used upon meeting their nemesis was “You Again”
