The Bridesmaids, 2011

The Bridesmaids, 2011
Director: Paul Feig
Cast: Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne

Stage: home theatre, at the seaside with one of my best friends on a beautiful morning

The Bridesmaids in short:Annie (Kristen Wiig), is a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. Annie's life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian's maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she'll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you'll go for someone you love.

Preps: One of the hot buns in our cinemas. Don't know anything about it, nor know cast.

Yuk. another comedy with a vague idea to fill in the seats with rotten jokes and weird romance. Rotten in terms of bad ones, not brilliant irony. The storyline runs around three friends, one of them getting married and weird situations they face when getting closer to the date. The real issue, exposed in the movie, is a dispute between money and having none. Plus, being a bride's maid when being one or another. Providing ideas and not backing them up with money, and vice versa, thinking you can buy everything with money.

It turns out that the movie neither had a good idea, nor the delivery of this idea. Some funny scenes, otherwise nothing more than a Sunday movie, where you can easily sleep out most of it and where you cannot miss if you miss it.

A thought that ran through my mind somewhere in the middle.. on the shower before the wedding.. do you get dogs as present for the guests? So Hollywood like.. I hated it. Dogs are live creatures, not something to be given as a token. Horrible.

My personal rating: 0 (don't waste your time, ain't worth it!)
