Walt Disney Pictures has just debuted the the trailer for You Again, the family-friendly comedy with an impressive cast led by Kristen Bell, Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kristin Chenoweth, Odette Yustman, and Betty White. Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain) directs this tale of the successful Marni (Bell), who finds out that her brother’s fiancée is the same girl who tormented Marni throughout high school. On top of that, the mother of the bride happens to have played the same role in the formative years of Marni’s mother (Jamie Lee Curtis) a generation earlier. You can check out the trailer after the jump.
I fell hard for Miss Bell after Veronica Mars, and I am very eager to see a truly great movie that harnesses her particular strengths. I’m not sure this is it . . . but look, it’s internet meme Betty White! In all seriousness, this really is the kind of cast that could elevate such material (see: fellow Disney production The Proposal), and I’m happy to support PG comedies led by a female cast for the younger Collider readers of the fairer sex out there, a sadly malnourished demographic in Hollywood. Don’t count this one out yet. Plus, I’ll tell you what I do love about the clip: You Again ostensibly centers around a pending marriage, but I’m not certain we ever see the groom. Fingers crossed for a third-act twist à la The Sixth Sense.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
No matter how old you are, you never get over high school. Successful PR pro Marni (KRISTEN BELL) heads home for her older brother’s (JIMMY WOLK) wedding and discovers that he’s marrying her high school arch nemesis (ODETTE YUSTMAN), who’s conveniently forgotten all the rotten things she did so many years ago. Then the bride’s jet-setting aunt (SIGOURNEY WEAVER) bursts in and Marni’s not-so-jet-setting mom (JAMIE LEE CURTIS) comes face to face with her own high school rival. The claws come out and old wounds are opened in this crazy comedy about what happens when you’re reunited with the one person you’d like to forget.
