"IF THIS IS ONLY A CHICK FLICK,
THEN CALL ME A CHICK"
-Joe Morgenstern, THE WALLSTREET JOURNAL
"Gut-bustingly funny. BRIDESMAIDS gets an A!!!" (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly) From the producter of SUPERBAD and THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN comes the breakout comedy critics are calling "brazenly hysterical!" (Alynda Wheat, People)
Thirty-something Annie (Kristen Wiig) has hit a rouch patch but finds her life turned completely upside down when she takes on the Maid of Honor role in her best friend Lillian's (Maya Rudolph) wedding. In way over her head but determined to succeed, Annie leads a hilarious hodgepodge of bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to the big event.
I went into this movie fully expecting to hate it. Not only is it a raunchy comedy (something I generally dislike) but it came across in the previews like it was The Hangover for women. I hated The Hangover and I generally hate movies with all-female casts. But this had me laughing my ass off.
