You Again Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review

Synopsis: You Again, the nonstop laugh fest, is pure fun that features an all-star cast with comedy pedigrees - including Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Sigourney Weaver and the always outrageous Betty White. For Marnie (Bell), high school was a horror movie, and her brother's wedding is the sequel when her archrival comes back to haunt her as his bride. It's nice girl versus mean girl in this hysterical reunion with the one person Marnie would really like to forget. And if that weren't enough, Marnie's mom (Curtis) reunites with her own high school nemesis (Weaver). Complete with hilarious, never-before-seen bonus material, You Again is one crazy comedy that'll keep you laughing again and again.

Review: You Again was advertised as a hilarious drop-dead comedy.  One thing this film does not contain is non-stop laughs.  Thats not a bad thing, but I've seen far too many films recently that are falsely advertised.  This is a great film and they should just present it as it is.  To be honest, its far better as a drama with a few funny moments.

One of the things that stands out most about You Again is the cast.  The cast is fantastic .  We're talking Jamie Lee Curtis (Trading Places, True Lies), Sigourney Weaver (Aliens, Ghostbusters) and Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall).  They play off each other like the pros that they are and that provides a large amount of the enjoyment for this film.  If they had an ordinary cast, then the story itself would fall flat and cliche, but thankfully thats not the case.

The special features include: 

• Following Fickman: On Set With The Director - Peer into the madcap mind of Hollywood's wackiest director, Andy Fickman, as he orchestrates the comedy of Kristen Bell, Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis and Betty White.
• Ask The Cast - Jamie Lee Curtis, Betty White, Sigourney Weaver, and Kristen Bell answer questions from fans. Betty's advice might not be what you expect
• Funny Or Die - In this behind-the-scenes interview spoof, Jaime Lee Curtis, Betty White, Sigourney Weaver, Odette Yustman and Kristen Bell discuss the movie when things get tense between the actresses eventually boiling over into a cast fight.
