You Again (2010 movie)


You Again (2010 movie) is a refreshingly family friendly film. The audience of the movie, You Again can also relate as it discusses bullying during high school.

  • The film, You Again stars the character Marni Olivia Olsen otherwise known as her initials MOO by those people who like to be mean to her.
  • Her physical appearance includes thick black rimmed glasses, blond hair and acne during her high school years.
  • She is tormented by the most popular girls at school including the cheerleaders and their ringleader is a character named Joanna.

In the movie, You Again, the character Marni's brother is also one of the popular kids and he is a star athlete at school but he always shows Marni that he loves her and does not make her feel inadequate.


Fast forward

Fast forward several years later, after college, Marni grows into her looks having gotten contact lenses and no longer having acne. She also has a successful career in the public relations field. She is excited to be up for a promotion at her job and it will relocate her to New York City.

Marni decides to visit her immediate family to share her work news and celebrate her brother's recent engagement.

She is visiting home for the first time in several years and there is a very funny scene where even her family dog can not remember her.

The main part of the plot of You Again however is that as Marni returns home she learns that the woman her brother is engaged to is in fact her high school rival Joanna.

Needless to say, the title You Again is a creative one for the movie.

A bitter pill

  • It is a bitter pill to swallow but Marni reacts really badly as she refuses to see any changes that Joanna has made since high school.
  • Marni finds it impossible to believe that Joanna can now be a good person.

Marni's mom is played by Jamie Lee Curtis and she tries to help Marni see the importance of letting go of the past but behold Joanna's aunt comes to town for the wedding and this woman played by Sigourney Weaver is also an old high school enemy of Marni's mom!

A parallel drama unfolds and Marni's mom who still holds her own grudge against Joanna's aunt must now try to follow the same the words of advice that she gave to her daughter.

  • Betty White acts the character of Marni's grandmother and has also developed a closeness to Joanna. She is tickled when Marni and Joanna "fight over [her]".
  • In efforts to keep the past buried, Joanna refuses to admit that she can even remember Marni.

Marni is the middle child. Her older brother is the one who is engaged to Joanna. Marni solicits the help of the younger brother to reveal the truth about Joanna. This includes excavating a buried time capsule from high school and showing a video of Joanna's mean remarks at the wedding rehearsal dinner!

After all this drama, will Marni's older brother still want to marry Joanna? Rent the DVD today to find out.
