Bachelorette

(R) ★★☆☆☆

Well, this isn’t that far removed from Bridesmaids, is it? Four friends have reunited because one of them is getting married. There’s Regan (Kirsten Dunst), the icy thirty-something professional at a loss as to why she isn’t married yet. There’s dizzy, loose Katie (Isla Fisher), booze-fueled Gena (Lizzy Caplan) and, of course, Becky (Rebel Wilson), the bride. Cue the enthusiastic cocaine snorting, f-bombs, abortion jokes and mayhem. It’s been done, and this movie’s transitions from silly to “serious” don’t work. The filmmakers just don’t seem to deliver.

Habit Forming

By Jarret Keene

I’ve been snagged, tagged and bagged by the best new Vegas band I’ve heard in years—a group with a single live show under its belt. But their résumé is growing. The Dirty Hooks are a feral blues-punk trio featuring singer/baritone guitarist Bobby McCall, singer/drummer Jenine Cali (front woman for defunct indie act The Day After) and guitarist Anthony Ratto III. The group recently self-released Electric Grit, which was mixed at producer Kevin Churko’s (Ozzy Osbourne) Hideout studio by his son Kane.
