This spring, Universal Pictures and producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) invite you to experience Bridesmaids. Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. Annie’s life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she’ll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love. — (C) Universal
Scott’s Take – 3 1/2 Stars
Kristen Wiig absolutely OWNS this movie. Out of all the comedies that came out over the summer, Bridesmaids could very well be the best. Who knew women could be so uncouth? Get ready to laugh your ass off.
Steve’s Take – 3 1/2 Stars
This movie was touted as being the female version of The Hangover. While it wasn’t as funny as The Hangover, it was hysterical in its own right. Great punch lines are found throughout the movie and it makes for a great 2 hours of comedy. Pick this one up whether you rent or buy.
Only on big release this week and it’s pretty much garbage until Sept 30th when Transformers: The Dark of the Moon comes out. Have a great week.
