Movie Reviews: ‘Bridesmaids‘
Movie Review: THE TIMES
Bring on the cheap cocktails, the inappropriately high footwear and the posse of loud girlfriends, for this weekend Bridesmaids opens. This cinema trip is not for delicate souls, the sort of ladies who read Anita Brookner novels and wear tasteful beige linen. No, this is down-and-dirty wit of the sort we usually see in films aimed at hungover young men. Yet the big, brash laughs are coupled with a smart insight into women’s friendships, and that essential of comedy.
Movie Review: Newsday
Partway through the gross-out comedy “Bridesmaids,” several women don expensive wedding dresses and, thanks to a dubious lunch, lose control of their bowels. This scene may not sound like a giant leap for gender equality in the movies, but it is, and for this reason: It is viscerally, mortifyingly funny.
The self-abasement and physical abuse that comedy often requires has long been the domain of men, but something may be changing with “Bridesmaids” (and, perhaps, the upcoming “Bad Teacher,” starring Cameron Diaz). We’ve had foul-mouthed female stand-ups, from Joan Rivers to Roseanne Barr, but unladylike behavior usually has its limits; audiences generally don’t laugh when a woman falls on her face or takes the proverbial skillet to the head.
Movie Review: DENVER POST
This romp about a crazed maid of honor and a fairly sane bride has enough titters and laughs by comparison that it’s tempting to send bouquets it’s way when the movie is mostly randy, guilty fun.
When we first meet Annie (Kristen Wiig), she’s weathering a setback that could make any gal (or guy, for that matter) wobbly. She’s lost her beloved business, a bakery.
She’s also .well, “dating” is too generous a word for the bedroom acrobatics (no strings attached) she and sex-buddy Ted perform.
“Make room for someone who’s nice to you,” best friend Lillian (Maya Rudolph) tells Annie at one point. No kidding. Jon Hamm of “Mad Men” takes pleasure in playing Ted as an amoral (albeit honest about it) cad.
