Synopsis


Bridesmaids
Director Paul Feig and producer Judd Apatow team up again for this comedy that stars Kristen Wiig as Annie, a romantically unattached failed bakery owner who fears she's losing her BFF, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), the best thing in her life, when Lillian announces she's gotten engaged. Annie's anxieties deepen as Lillian grows close to Helen (Rose Byrne), a wealthy and beautiful new friend who quickly assumes control of planning all the pre-wedding festivities. On top of the main storyline of a female friendship being torn apart, the movie adds a romantic storyline for Annie, who starts the film answering a booty call from the casually cruel yet undeniably handsome Ted (Jon Hamm), but develops a lovely flirtation with an Irish cop named Rhodes (Chris O'Dowd) after he pulls Annie over one night thinking she's driving drunk. As the low-self-esteem Annie sabotages this new possibility for love, she also feels the most important friendship in her life slipping away. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    For everyone whose life has hit rock bottom, or so they thought, we have Annie (played by Kristen Wiig). Working as a jewelry store clerk after suffering a massive business failure and living with two very, to say the least, eccentric fraternal twins despite being chronically late with the rent. Meanwhile, Lillian her best friend (played by Maya Rudolph) is engaged and to a man she’s deeply in love with who makes a great living. And as her beast friend, Lillian enlists Annie to act as her maid of honor at her wedding. It’s at the engagement party where Annie first meets Helen Harris (Rose Byrne). Helen’s husband employs Lillian’s fiancée and has become strangely close to her as a result. The other bridesmaids provide little more than comic relief while Helen, who plans on the order of a Martha Stewart clone on steroids, is the antagonist as she seems intent on usurping Annie’s role as maid of honor and Lillian’s best friend which, given Lillian’s impending change of address, appears to be a position that will be vacant soon enough. During all this, Annie’s romantic life is complicated by a waning entanglement with a man whose interest in her is mainly physical and a relationship with kind and respectful police officer whom she met thanks to a long-broken taillight. The story isn’t all that interesting and the fact that only the audience sees things from Annie’s point if view is near infuriating, in my opinion. That said, Wiig, Rudolph, Byrne and company are hilarious as the events depicted, though some seem meant to make the viewers cringe or test their gag reflex which runs counter to my personal taste. Funny, entertaining, and that’s about it.

    Wow, what a movie. I went and saw it twice and paid full price. I never do that. So funny! Definitely full of a lot of female humor and mentioning of unmentionable things, not for the faint of heart. St. Louis native bad boy Jon Hamm was a treat to the eyes. Very caddy, but oh so handsome. The Canadian cop played by Chris O'Dowd is so cute! Just love that Irishman! I could watch him over and over again. Very funny guy - as well as the whole gal pal cast characters. The brits were funny too. Makes anyone having a bad day realize how lucky the are that they aren't having the multiple bad days the main character is having. Defnitely gives you some perspective on life. Things could be MUCH worse than the are. Songs in the movie were well chosen and went great with the movie plot. I bought the DVD. This is a keeper.

    Life is full of ups and downs, and this movie perfectly captures the angst of a 30-something woman's experiences as her childhood best friend's wedding looms. Trying to keep cool while living in sleepy Milwaukee and trying to navigate a recent economic meltdown, including the loss of her bakery business AND her boyfriend AND her apartment, she suffers enumerable setbacks and loses her temper at the worst possible moments, regularly embarrassing herself and her best friend. Written with a sarcastic wit and featuring plenty of girl-style gross-out moments, this movie makes you laugh even while sympathizing in agony. Acting is great, and no one character is the "star" - they've all got their special moments, and they're all lovable yet quirky - by the end, you'll feel like they're your best friends. Only thing is, the unrated version isn't all that different than the theatrical release, so you're not getting much more with this DVD than the regular version.

    "Bridesmaids" is a hilarious movie about Annie (Kristen Wiig) and her best friend's upcoming wedding. Annie's bakery failed and in the process she lost her savings, boyfriend, and dignity. She ends up taking a job as a clerk at a jewelry store and has two obnoxious roommates living with her. During this painful time in her life, her childhood best friend (Lillian - Maya Rudolph) gets married and asks her to be her maid of honor. Knowing that she is short on funds, Annie tries to take "economic" route for all her duties - but is unable to do so when another one of the bridesmaids (Helen - Rose Byrne) is a wealthy woman that wants everything to be over the top. This causes a rift between Lillian and Annie, which in turn results into a hilarious unfolding of events that cannot be topped!

    This movie is funny from beginning to end. I was not familiar with Kristen Wiig before this movie, but I can't imagine anyone else in her role. The movie depicts how two close friends can fall apart, but in the end still be there for each other because no one knows them like they know each other. The movie has other known celebrities who play their parts really well. It shows what is involved in pulling a wedding together when there is clear differences of all involved. There is a lot of moving parts so it's difficult to put detail without going into a long explanations, but if you love comedies this is definitely a movie to see because you won't stop laughing.

    The movie is funny from beginning to end. I seen some of the previews and I could not wait to see it. I finally bought it at BestBuy. When I finally got to see it, it was a good movie all the way. It is very funny. I love watching funny movies and this is definitely one to watch for laughter. There will be parts in the movie that will make you crack up out loud (cause I know I did,I ain't going to lie on that one). My kids wondered and asked what was I laughing about so much and so loud. Then they came and joyened me after they saw the good funny parts. I bought this movie for myself. It's in my funny movie collection.

    Very funny movie with a great cast. Wiig's character has hit a rough patch but finds her life turned upside down when her best friend gets engaged and ask her to be her maid of honor. As she leads the bridesmaids down the road to the wedding, her life unravels and she becomes the maid of dishonor. Some laugh out loud moments. Blu-ray disc, packaging, picture and sound quality good. Presented in 2.40:1 aspect ratio. Special features: feature commentary, gag reel, line-o-rama, deleted, extended and alternate scenes and Cholodecki's commercial.

    Pretty, Good, but Somewhat Overhyped

    I think I went into this movie with extremely high expectations. I didn't see it in the theaters, but based on critical acclaim (professional and friends), I expected to see a fresh, new comedy when I bought the blu-ray. While it WAS definitely funny, I was still disappointed. Feel free to disagree with me, but as a guy who finds shows such as Children's Hospital, NTSF:SD:SUV, and Robot Chicken HILARIOUS, I think this movie was about as good as Hangover 2. Nothing new, but nonetheless amusing.
