Bridesmaids

The fabulously outragous team that bought us Knocked Up and 40 Year Old Virgin have now taken it upon themselves to reinvent the 'chick flick'.  Bridesmaids takes the'Apatow-formula' and applies it to a film about women, and bloody funny women at that. The movie features a stellar cast, with Maya Rudolph as the bride, as well as a strong supporting cast of brilliant comedians which includes Melissa McCarthy, Jon Hamm, Matt Lucas, Ellie Kemper, Dianne Wiestand, Jill Clayburgh, and Chris O’Dowd. It is an outlandish comedy telling the (all too familiar!) story of two feuding bridesmaids, played by Kristen Wiig and Rose Byrne.

I first came across the comic genius that is Kristen Wiig in a small role in Knocked Up and wanted to see more of her; so what a treat it is to have a her star in a film (that she also co wrote with Annie Mumolo).  She delivers a career-best performance that proves she is a leading lady, not simply just a character actress.

Bridesmaids is nothing short of genius. Without an obvious A list cast I hope that it will still draw the crowds and become a box office hit that it deserves to be. It is confident, smart, with a mix of laugh-out-loud funny, naughty, and heartbreaking moments. 

Quite simply, a comedy classic in the making!
