    You Again could be taught at film schools as an example of how not to make a movie. And how not to humiliate veteran actors.
  2. There is not a laugh to be found in this rancid, misogynistic revenge comedy.
  3. 12
    This is another miserable movie about women at war over nonsense.
  4. An unlikable and excruciatingly unfunny comedy.
  5. Suffers from an increasingly common movie defect: appealing, sharply drawn supporting characters, and a cast of main characters that is as unlikely as it is unlikable.
  6. Has no inherent laughs, so an extremely versatile and talented cast struggles mightily to make something funny that simply isn't.
  7. 38
    Disney's effort to turn Kristen Bell into America's Sweetheart reaches its tipping point with You Again, a flat romantic comedy that packages her in a funny setup and surrounds her with funny people.
  8. Little more than a glorified situation comedy. The problem is, it's all situation and no comedy.
  9. 30
    What follows is one set piece after another in which the women make fools of themselves as the script herds them toward a happy ending of hugs and tears.
  10. 30
    Infinitely worse than you dared to hope it wouldn't be, You Again dumbfounded and then defeated me.
  11. 30
    The girl world found in crass comedies such as You Again, movies that reduce women to sad clich├ęs and a uniform level of bad behavior that would appall the cast members of "Jersey Shore."

    Since love and boys fall strictly to the side, we can't tell if this wrongheaded caper was intended as a feminist indictment of female competition or a plain old girl-fight flick.

    Manages to squander three generations of formidable actresses.

    Horrible. You Again is an exhausting film that's nothing more than a bunch of ridiculous and implausible events sequenced together for humor, only it's never once funny. Everything about the movie, from the writing to the cast, fails miserably. Shame on whoever produced this garbage. One of the worst films of 2010. Full Review »
