A bride who wants to keep her bachelorette party in New York City relatively tame, but when her jealous bridesmaids (Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher) ruin her wedding dress by drunkenly both trying to fit into it at once, the party’s mission becomes about saving the gown, which also acquires some R-rated stains. Along the way, the ladies’ evening includes plenty of booze and ex-boyfriends, plus a plethora of cursing. Things get so rowdy that one bridesmaid almost doesn’t make it to the wedding the next day.
