Bridesmaids (2011)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: A marriage of genuine characters, gross out gags, and pathos, Bridesmaids is a female-driven comedy that refuses to be boxed in as Kristen Wiig emerges as a real star.

Critic Reviews for Bridesmaids

All Critics (264) | Top Critics (46)

The star and co-writer of Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig, puts herself and her female co-stars through the comedy wringer.

Top Critic

Bridesmaids is likely to be a hit with both women and men, being half formula chick-flick, half raunchy comedy of humiliation. It's hilarious -- and too bifurcated to be satisfying.

Top Critic

Full of heart, warmth and enough excrement to fill an all-white bridal shop.

The Patriot Ledger

Through a combination of smart performances and scurrilous gags Bridesmaids yanks the buddy comedy from the hands of its traditional owners.

Independent

All that straining for ribaldry feels a little sad, like Feig and his actors know they're sacrificing honesty for coarse bumptiousness.

Willamette Week

The dialogue, even when it's in questionable taste, snaps with intelligence.

Audience Reviews for Bridesmaids

Infectiously funny, sarcastic and charming, Bridesmaids is a laugh-out-loud comedy. The film sprouts its gags and potential from its cast (Wiig, Rudolph, McCarthy, Byrne & others) and it's comedic gold. 5/5

The basis for this broad comedy ;) is women laughing with women about some of their perceived life foibles. Life long single friends face a bit of a rocky road when one is finally asked to get married.
Its light entertainment, with a few forgivable flaws (like the friendship between the two leads could've used more work - Maya Rudolph doesn't have much to work with, but none of the other bridesmaids fare well either) (or the idea that neither friend was "complete" until they were married) made up for with thin comic set pieces when all the ladies are together, oddly based on juvenile potty humor.
McCarthy steals the film in the vacuum of lackluster group character development.

This is the first guy (or should I say dude) film with an (almost) all-female cast. So that's something. That being said, I don't really care for guy films. But if you're into films about bachelor(ette) parties gone horribly awry or losers turning their life around with the help of the "Girl" Next Door that suddenly pops into their life, then you might enjoy this.
