The Challenge: To watch 365 movies I’ve never seen before in 2011. I promise, I’m more than 9 movies deeps, I just haven’t made posts about them all.
So I went to see Bridesmaids with my sister Friday night. New York, you’re killing me here - $13 a ticket to see a movie? When did the prices go up again?
In Bridesmaids, Annie (played by Kristen Wiig) discovers that her best friend Lillian is getting married, moving to Chicago, and getting all her ducks in a row for a nice new life. Annie’s own life is falling apart, but she instantly agrees to be the maid of honor. It seems, however, that she might not be cut out for the job, and someone who just might be is hovering in the wings …
Don’t let anyone tell you this is chick flick, if you believe in the negative connotations that go with that label. This is just a hilarious comedy that happens to star women. This is a must see for anyone who appreciates humor. Some of it is subtle, friendship-between-ladies based, some of it is in-your-face raunchy. You’ll appreciate the presence of every one of the above ladies (especially in the scene from which the still was taken). People have been talking about this movie for the last couple of weeks for a reason. Despite the fact that The Hangover 2 (which I will see and post about soon) opened on Friday, I saw groups of men, sans women, walking into the theater to see this film. If that doesn’t say everyone needs to see this, I don’t know what will.
See it / Meh / Skip it
