Overview

A high-powered PR professional discovers that her brother is about to marry the woman who made her high school life a living hell in this comedy starring Kristen Bell and Odette Yustman. Back in her teens, Marni Bell was a little awkward. These days she's a successful career woman, but the memories of being tormented by popular cheerleader Joanna Yustman still make her break into a cold sweat. Flying home for her brother's Will's wedding, Marni realizes to her horror that she will soon be sister-in-law to the pompon-wielding mean girl who once humiliated her in front of the entire student body. And apparently her nemesis learned from the best, because back when Marni's mom Jamie Lee Curtis was in high school, Joanna's aunt Sigourney Weaver served up the same kind of treatment. Now that they're about to become family, Marni and her mom do their best to let bygones be bygones. But old grudges die hard, and by the time the wedding bells chime, these old foes will already have some saucy stories to share with their grandchildren.

All Movie Guide
Watching You Again is not unlike seeing an old acquaintance from high school, if acquaintances were pleasantly predictable comedies. It tells the same stories, shares the same woes, and hasn't quite come to terms with the fact that its glory days are over -- but it's not an unwelcome presence. The film begins with Kristen Bell in the role of Marni, resident high school geek, circa 2002. Like the "four-eyed, pimple-faced" students that preceded her, as well of those who follow in her footsteps, it's hard not to sympathize with Marni's multiple attempts to hold her head high despite crippling social awkwardness and the kind of bad luck that ends up on YouTube. It's equally as difficult not to inwardly cheer for her eight years after graduation, braces-free, and making a bang in the PR world. Not surprisingly, it's downright easy to feel her indignation after finding out her kindhearted brother is marrying none other than her former arch nemesis, Joanna Odette Yustman -- ex-cheerleading squad captain, self-proclaimed "warden of Ridgefield High," and Alpha Mean Girl. Though Marni reluctantly accepts that Joanna doesn't recall her long stint as a teenaged "emotional terrorist" phrase courtesy of Dwayne Johnson in a cameo appearance as a deceptively sensitive Federal Air Marshal, the idea that Joanna has transformed into an adult as saintly as her younger self was cruel is too much not to second-guess. Marni's suspicions are confirmed when she realizes Joanna has been dishonest about the significance of a former flame. Using her PR expertise, Marni launches an elaborate campaign to expose Joanna before her besotted brother can make his vows. Much to the film's credit, the actors are clearly committed to making the most of the material. Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver, playing Marni's mother and Joanna's aunt, respectively, are able to conjure a believable sense of competition as adults who have carried the baggage from an eventful senior prom into their middle age. Victor Garber seems perfectly natural as Marni's standup yet slightly New Age father, and Kristin Chenoweth, in the role of celebrity "wedding extra-ordinator" Georgia King, should have her own television series. While the trappings of comedy allow for a certain suspension of disbelief, Joanna's bullying -- both in high school and in several pointedly malicious moments toward Marni as an adult -- is too extreme for her redemption to pack much of an emotional punch, despite the film's concerted effort to humanize her. The groom-to-be Jimmy Wolk is such a two-dimensional character that it's hard to muster any emotion in regard to his love life one way or another. Despite the film's shortcomings, however, Bell's Marni is an endearing character, and the combined efforts of the cast and several genuinely funny moments from minor characters played by Betty White, Dwayne Johnson, Kristin Chenoweth, and Kyle Bornheimer inject just enough charm to outweigh the plot contrivances and make You Again a watchable paint-by-numbers comedy for queen bees and wannabes alike.
