Excerpt: I think one of the reasons that some people hold off on getting married is the sheer preparation involved to get there. Take me, for example. I got married last year and was 100% in favor of going to Las Vegas and getting hitched along with some family. Nope. Didn’t happen. Then again men tend to look at the wedding (note, not marriage , the wedding ) a lot differently than women.
Conclusion: Bridesmaids is a one-of-a-kind film, with a one-of-a-kind cast, and a one-of-a-kind Blu-ray. If you were choosing whether or not to get this, GET IT! This Blu-ray is jam-packed with spectacular video, audio, and an array of extensive special features that should keep one busy for hours and hours. A great movie, a great Blu-ray, a great time.
Excerpt: Bridesmaids comes daringly close to breaking Dumb & Dumber’s unofficial record for toilet humor greatness. Regardless of what people say about it, there’s a line between when toilet humor humor works and exists for a reaction. Maya Rudolph in the middle of the street wearing a wedding dress worth thousands while slowly succumbing to the effects of ravaged Brazilian food? Comedy gold. Oddly enough, it’s one of the few scenes in Bridesmaids that knows when to quit.
Summary: Bridesmaids ushers in a new era of comedy, proving once and for all that women could be funny, mass audiences would flock to movies with funny women and that gross-out R-rated comedies are not just a boy’s club domain. Hysterical, insightful, honest, and brilliant, Bridesmaids is easily the best comedy so far this year.
Excerpt: Paul Feig’s 2011 comedy smash hit Bridesmaids, co-written by star Kristin Wiig and Annie Mumulo, sees Wiig play a woman named Annie. Approaching middle age and still stinging a bit from the fact that her bakery business went under, she nevertheless has a great time hanging out with her best friend since way back, Lillian (Maya Rudolph).
Excerpt: The Film Judd Apatow gave the rom-com genre a much needed jolt with comedies The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up . Yes, those were rom-coms. However, unlike the genre's trademark of regurgitating the same old corny crap, Apatow mixed things up a bit. He also let men take the lead. Now, he's backed one mainly for the ladies in Bridesmaids . Apatow produced Bridesmaids , with his Freaks and Geeks collaborator Paul Fieg taking the director's chair.
Conclusion: Director Paul Feig delivers gut-busting laughs with the winning comedy 'Bridesmaids,' the surprise box-office smash about a group of women preparing for their friend's wedding. From the wild imagination of Kristen Wiig, along with fellow improv artist Annie Mumolo, the film is a hilarious, genre-bending raunchfest, one with lots of heart and smarts, easily making it this year's best comedy.
