Bridesmaids Review



So I went to see Bridesmaids two nights ago, and it was absolutely incredible. I laughed so hard I thought I might tinkle a bit in my pants. I left the theater feeling drunk from laughter. I am not kidding. I have to see it again. I hopefully will see it with someone other than a GUY, but that fellow was a good sport and said he enjoyed it as well.

Maybe I should see it with my own girlfriends and we can have cocktails prior and post-show.

Kristen Wiig has done a great job on this movie, and as my BFF Alex has said time and time again, this movie is not just another "Judd Apatow movie". Judd Apatow was just one of several collaborators on this movie.

As per imdb.com here are some stats:
Budget: $32,500,000 (estimated)
Opening Weekend: $26,247,410 (USA) (15 May 2011) (2918 Screens)
Gross: $59,341,310 (USA) (22 May 2011)

Produced by
Judd Apatow .... producer
Paul Feig .... executive producer
Barry Mendel .... producer
Annie Mumolo .... co-producer
Clayton Townsend.... producer
Kristen Wiig .... co-producer

Directed by Paul Feig

Writing credits: Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo

So, as you can see, this film was pretty female-friendly as the co-writers both worked as co-producers. I am a huge fan of films that include women on the crew, and this film really hit at female humor. At times I felt so uncomfortable... awkward, even... about things happening that I had to wince over and over again. Why did I feel uncomfortable? Because there were moments in that film that I had experienced and could relate to. Who writes those scripts best? FELLOW FEMALES.

Good job Hollywood, lets try to crank out something similar. Although show less fake vomit next time, maybe?

  1. I thought it was "okay" and "sort of funny" but now that a few days have passed I KEEP repeating lines and dying and find myself laughing at certain scenes. I guess that means it was really good!

  5. I loved this movie! I liked it so much better than the Hangover Part 2. I went into Bridesmaids not expecting much and two weeks later I still giggle when I think of funny lines from the movie.
