High School Arch Enemies Square Off as Adults in “YOU AGAIN”
From Touchstone Pictures comes “You Again,” an outrageous comedy directed by Andy Fickman (“Race to Witch Mountain”), featuring an all-star ensemble cast that includes Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis, Sigourney Weaver, Odette Yustman, Kristin Chenoweth and Betty White.
In the film, just as she is about to return home to Northern California for her brother’s wedding, Marni (Bell) learns from her mother, Gail (Curtis), that Will (James Wolk) is marrying Joanna (Yustman), her high school arch nemesis. Marni is horrified! Why would her brother marry the one girl from high school she never wants to see again?
“You Again” is produced by John J. Strauss, who wrote the hit comedy “There’s Something About Mary,” and Eric Tannenbaum, who executive-produces the hit television sitcom “Two and a Half Men.” Newcomer Moe Jelline penned the script.
Upon Marni’s arrival home, she can’t help but be annoyed as she watches her father Mark (Victor Garber), little brother Ben (Billy Unger) and even Grandma Bunny (Betty White) welcome Joanna into their family like she’s an angel. They have no idea how much Joanna tormented Marni during high school. Meanwhile, Joanna acts like nothing bad ever happened!
Then, the untenable situation takes another twist when Joanna’s aunt, Ramona (Weaver), a highly successful, career-driven woman, flies in from Europe for the wedding festivities. Evidently, Ramona and Gail also attended the same high school some thirty years ago, and though they claim camaraderie, they, too, have some rivalry that stems from their teenage years.
Added to the mix in the jammed-pack long weekend are Georgia King (Chenoweth), the “wedding-extraordinator,” who specializes in top-of-the-line event planning, Charlie (Sean Wing), Will’s high school friend and Best Man, and Tim (Kyle Bornheimer), Joanna’s former fiancé. Not to be forgotten are Taylor (Christine Lakin) and Kendall (Meagan Holder), the cheerleaders from those high school years who are Joanna’s best friends and poised to be bridesmaids for the big event.
Determined Marni is on a mission to prove to her family that Joanna is not who she appears to be. Meanwhile Gail is trying not to be intimidated by Ramona, who exudes confidence, beauty and wealth in everything she does, says or wears. As everyone comes together for dance lessons, Joanna’s bridal shower and the rehearsal dinner, Marni and her mother, Gail, unwittingly revert back to their teenage selves—and the result is wedding turmoil to the extreme!
“You Again” reminds everyone that high school might be a thing of the past, but sometimes if just the right person crosses your path it can undermine your present.
Opening soon across the Philippines, “You Again” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.
