From the producer of Superbad, Knocked Up, and The 40-Year Old Virgin, Judd Apatow is bringing us another insanely funny film with a fantastic cast: “Bridesmaids”. Let me just say that it stars SNL‘s Kristin Wiig and Maya Rudolph and The Office‘s Ellie Kemper, among other funny ladies. Now that is a recipe for success.
Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, 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.
This movie looks like the female version of The Hangover – so funny! Still not convinced? Watch the trailer below.
I have a feeling this movie will make it into my DVD collection.
I burst out laughing when Wiig started drinking straight from the bottle in this scene shown in the trailer.
