I talked a few weeks ago about “Bridesmaids”, the new comedy with Kristin Wiig and a whole host of funny ladies. Let me tell you, I thought the movie was hilarious. Probably the raunchiest movie you’ll see about women’s pre-wedding celebrations but definitely full of laughs. I was thinking before I saw it (sneak-preview!) and friends have asked if it’s like “The Hangover”. It is and it isn’t. It’s hilarious – though, will probably not be as epic and celebrated as “The Hangover” – but it’s purpose is a little different. “The Hangover” celebrates the bachelor party while “Bridesmaids” makes fun of the pre-wedding activities and it’s growing importance to celebrating the commitment people make when they decide to get married. (That didn’t sound jaded or anything, did it?!) I’ve seen one or two previews from people that would be of the groomsmen variety and they were not positive about “Bridesmaids”. But it might be one of those movies you can only like if you know exactly how it feels when a bride wants you to buy a $500 bridesmaids dress (hasn’t happened to me) or when your maid-of-honor toast is followed up by another toast from the bridesmaid who has known the bride longer (I won’t comment on this one).
Are you going to see “Bridesmaids this weekend? Let me know what you think!
