Marni (played by ray of sunshine Kristen Bell) had glasses, braces and acne in high school, so naturally, she was tortured by evil Joanna (played by Odette Yustman, who reminds me of Megan Fox, but with more range and less collagen). We jump to eight years later and Marni is flying to her brother's wedding and at the last minute she finds out that he's marrying Joanna, who is now the picture of kindness and compassion. When Joanna's aunt shows up for the wedding, we find out that she and Marni's mother have some pool shoving in their past. Jamie Lee Curtis (who looks eerily like John Malkovich in this) feverishly overacts as Marni's mother, Gail, while a pale and tired Sigourney Weaver plays Joanna's aunt Romona. Even national treasure Betty White (as self aware as Shatner by this point) has to struggle for laughs by the time she shows up.
As the two families try to make each other pay for sins of the past, we are left wondering why these four women don't just grab a coffee and hash it out instead of resorting to becoming shrill caricatures of human beings. The only reason I gave You Again two stars is because of the lovely performance of Kristen Bell who really deserves better than this ugly stereotype disguised as a romantic comedy. And you deserve better for your money and time. Watch Jerry Springer instead. It's free and there's chair throwing.
