Best Night Ever, 2013

Written and Directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer
Starring Desiree Hall, Eddie Ritchard, Samantha Colburn, Crista Flanagan

I wanted to like this movie more than I actually liked it. It is a bachelorette-party-gone-wrong movie, a la The Hangover, with the "let's do anything" quality of The Forty-Year-Old Virgin. I am a fan of movies like this, because why should men be the only ones who get to do all the crazy, raunchy comedy? In that spirit, I thought each of the four leads did a nice job, though I wish they'd have had more to work with. One unusual and pleasant aspect about how they used the conceit of filming the party on the phone was when each of them looked at or did takes to the camera; Samantha Colburn especially had a quality almost like Oliver Hardy, especially early in the movie.

Some people like some music more than other people.
