If you hadn't surmised from the title and the graphic to the left, we just watched Bridesmaids. It was a fun night: the entire staff stayed late last Friday and we popped in a bootleg copy (on VHS, obviously) because we wouldn't be caught dead buying actual tickets for such a blatant chick flick even though we have quite the unrequited crush on Kristen Wiig and dream about her even when we're not sleeping.
We'll keep this simple: Bridesmaids is a movie in need of a better title. Kristen Wiig (as usual) is the bomb in this flick and she blew up all over the screen. Melissa McCarthy (from TV's Mike & Molly) finally proved to us that she was more than just the punchline to a lame fat joke (even though, admittedly, the joke WAS written by the OI.o staff).
There's literally nothing to be said about the story: the framework is that Wiig's best friend is getting married and Wiig is going to be the Maid of Honor. We're fairly certain that movie has been made at least fourteen other times. What makes this version special is truly talented writing and equally talented acting (there are some great improvisational moments throughout the flick).
Our only complaint? It's too long. And there was a ridiculous lack of nudity. From Kristen Wiig. It's rated R -- throw us a bone already, K-Wiig!
