Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
You Again, the nonstop laugh fest, is pure fun that features an all-star cast with comedy pedigrees — including Kristen Bell, Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis and the always outrageous Betty White. For Marni (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 Marni would really like to forget. And if that weren't enough, Marni's mom (Curtis) reunites with her own high school nemesis (Weaver). You Again is one crazy comedy that'll keep you laughing again and again.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There is not a laugh to be found in this rancid, misogynistic revenge comedy.
Rotten: The veteran actresses' easy rapport and sheer exuberance are the only real fresh spots in a story you'll recognize from a mile away.
Rotten: An extremely versatile and talented cast struggles mightily to make something funny that simply isn't.
Rotten: Such a stinker that the only way to improve it would be for Disney to run the negative and all of the prints through an industrial shredder.
Much better than the critics give it credit for
Most comedies like this aren't treated very kindly by those high-profile critics, but that doesn't mean they're not enjoyed by the rest of us. "You Again" is a little bit like "Mean Girls" for a wider range of audiences, because as the bullying circuit affects everyone from Kristen Bell to Betty White, one thing's for sure: no matter how old you get, it never stops. While the film certainly maintains its humor, it also raises some interesting questions about those ageless "mean girls"--are they ever capable of changing? If they try to simply bury the past several years later, is it better to go along with it, and if not, how far do you go to get that apology? This is very timely and relatable material for all women today, and don't let the negative reviews fool you--these characters and their situations get to you, because they're honest. The movie has the advantage of a great cast, including the always likable Jamie Lee Curtis and of course Betty White, who is the cherry on top with every film/show she does these days. I look forward to owning this one and hope you will give it a try, too.
