“Bridesmaids” Movie Review
I love to go to the movies – especially when it isn’t a “kid” movie! I recently saw Bridesmaids, which was hands down the funniest movie I’ve seen all year! There were parts of the movie where I laughed so hard, I was crying! Kristen Wiig (Annie), Maya Rudolph (Lillian), and Rose Byrne (Helen) did an amazing job together and I felt like their characters were connected throughout the entire movie. Chris O’Dowd (Officer Rhodes) was adorable and never wanted him to stop talking. Chris and Kristen were great together! Now, my personal favorite character in the movie was, without a doubt, Melissa McCarthy (Megan). She is the friend that every person should have. She is funny, caring, and completely genuine in her role as Megan. I’ve talked to many people and a majority agree that Melissa McCarthy made the movie a hit!
Director Paul Feig and producer Judd Apatow team up again for this comedy that stars Kristen Wiig as Annie, a romantically unattached failed bakery owner who fears she’s losing her BFF, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), the best thing in her life, when Lillian announces she’s gotten engaged. Annie’s anxieties deepen as Lillian grows close to Helen (Rose Byrne), a wealthy and beautiful new friend who quickly assumes control of planning all the pre-wedding festivities. On top of the main storyline of a female friendship being torn apart, the movie adds a romantic storyline for Annie, who starts the film answering a booty call from the casually cruel yet undeniably handsome Ted (Jon Hamm), but develops a lovely flirtation with an Irish cop named Rhodes (Chris O’Dowd) after he pulls Annie over one night thinking she’s driving drunk. As the low-self-esteem Annie sabotages this new possibility for love, she also feels the most important friendship in her life slipping away. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi (Synopsis found at Fandango)
