  • Kristen Wiig is an indisputable goddess of comedy. And this rowdy fem-friendship movie she stars in and wrote with Annie Mumolo is infused with the Wiig brand of wicked mischief. show more

  • Through it all -- the free-form conversations, the brilliant set pieces, the preposterous gross-outs, the flawless performances -- Kristen Wiig's forlorn maid of honor, Annie, seeks her own destiny with a wrenchingly cockeyed passion. show more

  • Like many Apatow films, Bridesmaids has a rambling, disjointed quality, crammed with sequences that elicit laughs without advancing plot. show more

    I\'ve been so depressed lately and the only thing that has made me laugh out loud is this movie. Anyone who has ever gone through an \'identity crisis\' like Annie (and me) - or struggled so much that you feel cursed, you\'ll love this movie. My sister reminds me of Helen. She lives in CA so whenever she comes home to Ohio once a year, she can \"pretend\" that she has the most picture-perfect marriage and life. It\'s disgusting. But I\'m the one with the faithful, loving husband while hers flirts with anything in a skirt so - whatever.
