Bridesmaids the movie opens nationwide today, but I had a chance to see a sneak peek of it last week. Let me just tell you– IT WAS HILARIOUS! I cant’ remember the last time I laughed so hard at a movie. Even my husband was laughing so hard he teared up so it’s definitely not just a chick flick. There were scenes in there that every bride or bridesmaid can relate to.
Typically in the movies the role of bridesmaid or maid-of-honor is portrayed very romantically. It’s an easy breezy job, full of parties and pretty dresses. But Bridesmaids tells it more like it really is. There are expensive dresses to buy, crazy wedding party members to deal with and bridal meltdowns to avoid. Of course many of the scenes are over the top (like the flight to Vegas where Annie sees a colonial woman on the wing of the plane or the dress fitting session where everyone becomes raging sick.) But I’m pretty sure you will see at least a glimpse of your own wedding experiences somewhere in the film.
So grab your girls– or even your guy– and head to the theater right away to see this movie. I guarantee you will laugh. And who couldn’t use more laughter in their lives? When you do see it, be sure to come back here and tell me what your favorite scene was! I’d love to compare notes!
