You again is a film about people caught up in their high-school world.
Marni (Kirsten Bell) is one those glass-with-braces-plus-acne high school kids who gets bullied by Joanna (Odette Annable). High school has passed and everyone has moved on. That’s what we would imagine. Marni is now promoted as a Vice-president at her PR firm and doing well for herself. As she heads back home for her brother’s wedding, she speaks to her mother (Jamie Lee Curtis) and finds out that Will (James Wolk) is marrying Joanna. The high school feelings creep up for Marni as she returns home to find out that everyone has warmed up very well to Joanna including her grandma (Betty White). What’s even more surprising is Marni’s mom, Gail finds out that Joanna’s aunt, Ramona was one of her competitors in high school.
The movie then revolves around Marni trying get a good apology from Joanna about what she did to her in high school and proving to her brother what a phony she thinks Joanna is.
Overall, I thought the movie was predictable. You know how the movie is going to proceed and how it’s going to end. The movie kept bouncing between emotions and some silly comic moments.
My Rating: 2.5/5
My favorite line: The tagline
What doesn’t kill you…is going to marry your brother.
