Time for some lovely ladies to do some not so lovely but extremely funny things to ensure that EVERYONE laughs their asses off this weekend! Bridesmaids is proof that comedy is not a mans world. Despite the trailers which could lead you to believe this is a chick flick — this film is for everyone and is hands down, the best comedy of the year so far. These ladies will do whatever it takes to get the whole audience doubling over, without playing into any of the usual cliches. Find out why this film kicks so much ass…

The Players:

  • Director: Paul Feig
  • Writer: Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo
  • Actors: Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Rebel Wilson, Ellie Kemper, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Chris O’Dowd, Matt Lucas, Melissa McCarthy, Jill Clayburgh, Michael Hitchcock, and the uncredited Jon Hamm
  • Original Music by: Michael Andrews
  • Cinematography by: Robert D. Yeoman

The Plot:

Nothing is Annie’s (Wiig) life seems to be going her way. She’s single, her business has failed, and now her best friend is getting married. Though she’s happy for her friend, with the wedding comes the planning and a team of insane bridesmaids sure to make her life hell. Enjoy!

The Good:

  • Wiig in the Lead!: It’s about damn time! They can’t put her in any more SNL skits without renaming the show after her and she’s consistently been one of the strongest comedic presence in numerous other comedies (Adventureland, Walk Hard, Knocked Up…). Finally they put her in the lead and she in no way disappoints. She’s a comedy powerhouse that somehow manages to give a huge performance without ever going over the top and makes us care about her odd, though lovable character. Not only will she have you laughing, but she proves in this that she’s also able to carry an entire film and act her ass off. More Wiig! More Wiig!
  • Chick Power: It’s nice to not only see such a powerful female lead but such a strong supporting cast of comedic women. Literally, every single one of these ladies pack a comedic punch that at some point in the movie will leave you gasping for breath.
  • Pacing: They spaced out their jokes and overall timing perfectly so that there was almost no point where the film lacked momentum. It was one laugh after another and the story never lagged for a moment.
  • Jon Hamm: This is possible his best role since “Mad Men” and it couldn’t be more different, nor he more unattractive. This is by far the most unsexy and hilarious Hamm has ever been. He proved on “30 Rock” that he has some amazing comedic chops as a naive, pretty boy and this time he brings back that same idea, but with a whole lot more edge. He’s fantastic in this and him and Wiig make an amazing comedic duo.

The Bad:

  • Zip Zero: This film was so much fun, for men, women, anyone who enjoys an off the wall, fast-paced, raunchy comedy!

Overall:

Watch out Hangover 2, the Bridesmaid bitches are in town and they’re ready to throw down. This film was so much fun to watch, I will happily watch it again with a group of friends (and that’s VERY rare!). Great pick if you’re looking to go to the theater and just have some fucking fun.

Rating: 9/10

Bridesmaids hits theaters May 13th, don’t miss it!
