As a case study in bizarrely conflicted cinema, ‘You Again’ is fascinating. On one level, it’s a cosy, unashamedly bourgeois all-American wedding movie. On another it’s a fever-pitch psychodrama about guilt, self-loathing and ‘emotional terrorism’ crammed with loopy cameos and frenzied slapstick. This must be one of the weirdest films ever to bear the Disney brand.
Kristen Bell plays Marni, a geek-turned-goddess who is horrified to learn that her beloved big brother is about to marry the über-bitch, Joanna (Odette Yustman), who made her high-school life a living hell. So far, so ordinary – until the arrival of said psycho’s aunt Ramona (Sigourney Weaver), who happens to have a similar history with Marni’s seemingly ordinary suburban Mom, Gail (Jamie Lee Curtis).

The presence of these two acting powerhouses, plus the surely-not-coincidental similarity between our heroine’s name and that of Hitchcock’s most disturbed heroine, should give audiences a fair idea of what to expect. Yes, this is shrill, crass mainstream Hollywood product, but it has a tendency towards lurid kitsch freakout which makes it not just relentlessly entertaining, but borderline subversive.

Looks like Im the only one to admit watching this.....and actually quite liking it. It's like a 15 rated bitch fest IF swearing hadn't been invented. Not QUITE worth your hard earned, certainly worth a cheap rent with your friends around. nout wrong with that, snobs! 5+/10
