Last night, I was privileged to be invited by Universal Pictures to watch an advanced screening of the very funny movie, Bridesmaids. The movie comes out this Friday, May 13 and you can watch with not only your girlfriends, but it’s also safe to see with a boyfriend/husband as long as you both enjoy crude humor (it’s appropriately rated R). I wanted to show up to the theatre in my bridesmaids dress from my sister’s wedding but she wouldn’t have any part of it. She probably saved me from my own embarrassment as well as hers.
It had all the right characters in it because Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph from Saturday Night Live were the main characters. It was produced by Judd Apatow who did Knocked Up/Superbad/40-Year Old Virgin and was directed by Paul Feig who created Freaks and Geeks. Just by those names and movies, you’ll know what kind of humor it is.
The movie was hilarious….it presented the weird chemistry among competitive girls and the crazy shenanigans that insecure women can get into. More than the craziness of a wedding, the movie was more about friendship and caring about people that you love more than yourself. That’s my humble opinion. You could also say that it was a funny movie to show what NOT to do when you’re a bridesmaid. So if you’re a bridesmaid anytime soon, watch the movie so you can learn from someone else’s mistakes!
By the way, a free giveaway is coming up this week before the movie opening on Friday, so keep an eye out!
