Bridesmaids Movie Review
It's about time Hollywood finally produced a movie made for women with a sense of humor - and sometimes gross humor at that. Last week, I got the chance to catch a screening of the new Judd Apatow ("Knocked Up") and Paul Feig (creator of "Freaks and Geeks") comedy "Bridesmaids," starring Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig and all I can say is, ladies...RUN don't walk to the nearest theater showing this film.
I don't care if your spouse or partner isn't in the mood for a chick flick. Trust me when I tell you that even a guy will love this movie. The reason - the women in "Bridesmaids" capture the essence of what it's like to be in a wedding party, mixing with women who you probably wouldn't be friends with at any other time in your life and combining it with physical comedy that will literally have you laughing so hard your sides will start hurting.
When single, down on her luck former business owner Annie learns that her best friend Lillian is engaged, everything in her own life seems to spiral out of control. No matter how hard she tries to impress Annie and her new rich friend Helen - who seems to be completely buttoned up and connected to the good life - something inevitably goes terribly wrong.
