Caplan: We were just talking about how there are some other similar-vein movies coming out, girl-themed comedies. And a lot of them are like, “Oh yeah, that was well-received and it’s a really cute movie and it was really well-done and the performances were great, yay yay yay!” Our movie is either making you really happy or pissing you off. And to me, it’s the only kind of movie I ever want to make.
For the record, this movie made me really happy. The portrayal of self-loathing and fear and the ramifications of that in these women…superb. Not to mention it’s fucking hilarious.
Kudos to Leslye Headland and her incredible cast on Bachelorette. It’s amazing.
