Movie: You again

Do you remember how you were like when you back in school? Were those memories you swore never to talk about again? I was lucky, my school days treated me pretty well. I may not be the prettiest girl but I made it up for being the school head counselor (I know, proud moments..) and president for my school's voluntary club. But the truth is, for most of us no matter how old you are, you never get over high school.

"You Again" - typically began with Kristin Bell (voice of Gossip girl, xoxo!) narrating how bad her life was in high school, being the geekiest geek and very much bullied by the cheerleaders of the school. So after she left school, removed her braces and got a swanky PR job - her life changed. She's no longer than geeky girl she used to be but someone who found a confidence back and........... her nightmare has only just begun.

Bell was going back home to attend her brother's wedding only to realise the mean cheerleader who ruined her life in highschool was going to be her sister-in-law. It got a lot more fun when Bell's mother Gail (Jamie Lee-curtis) met her high school rivalry at the wedding too.

Too much high school drama? Fret not. "You Again" was highly entertaining with the funniest lines and almost every scene was funny. Don't think too much of this film because it's really one of those films where you get to relax and enjoy.

Director Andy Fickman trots out American Granny, Betty White as well, which was really endearing imo. There's no reason why anybody wouldn't laugh with Granny Betty White. I felt that "You Again" carried great messages about second chances - making mistakes is part of life, “how we fix them is what matters.”

I'm just not so sure if Kristin Bell is going to be our next Disney American Sweetheart.
