Bridesmaids is been called the female Hangover, where we see that women can do the same things as man; Fart, burp, crap and puke. it's the story about a bunch of different women on a crazy bachelor party. Annie (Kristen Wiig) and Lillian (Maya Rudolph) has been best friends since they were kids and Lillian is getting married and Annie is going to be her maid of honor. But they haven't seen each other in a long time, and Maya has got a new friend, Helen (Rose Byrne) who is super rich and consider herself as Maya's BFF. And so starts a fight between Annie and Helen over who's going to be Maya's best friend. The long time best friend versus the new rich one.
Bridesmaids is a some what funny comedy, with a lot of funny characters, such as the Melissa McCarthy character, Megan, who is basically a guy in a woman's body. But it's all basically just Hangover for girl, with the same formula that have been used in comedies the last three decades. And I specially thinks that Kristen Wiig's performance might be over the top, that she was rather stupid than funny. But still there are some laugh out loud moments and for that I give this film a thumbs up.
