Women in general have had slim pickings as far as relatable TV and movie programming throughout the decades. Hell, its even tough to find women on TV that actually enjoy each others company on the big and small screens.
Sure there has been the classics such as Golden Girls (yawn) and Sex and the City (great series but sometimes too sensitive). But now, we truly have our answer in relatable group of friends who happen to fill the void of a vulgar female comedy.
At first glance, most might think this movie is just for girls. You couldn’t be more wrong.
When a group of my closest friends, who we all just so happened to get back from a bachelorette party in Vegas arrived at the movies, it was filled with a ton of guys. From the moment the movie started, we were all laughing within 30 seconds of the opening scene. Maybe sooner.
And the laughing never stopped.
In case you are unaware, the plot line for Bridesmaids consists of “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.
The problem with many “female centric” movies in the past is that they lacked the vulgar and sometimes sickening comedy of a close group of girl friends. Being in a group of friends that has somewhat stayed the same over the past several years, I can tell you there are secrets between us are hilarious, embarrassing, sweet , uplifting, profane, disgusting and sometimes (many times) secrets you want no one in your family to know about.
Bridesmaids captured every essence of this kind of friendship but also capitalized on some of the crazy people you have to come in contact with when a friend is getting married.
Anyone who has seen the movie can tell you the dress fitting scene could very well be one of the funniest scenes ever in a movie. It had most of us crying from laughing so hard. Its disgusting, raunchy, funny as all hell but very very real.
