Bridesmaids (2011)


This movie was heavily advertised earlier this year, and it attracted my attention a bit.  After seeing the trailer, I thought it would essentially be the girls version of The Hangover.  Oh, how wrong I was.  The Hangover will probably go down in history as a comedic great whereas Bridesmaids will probably be all but forgotten within two years.  The commercials say “critics are calling it the best comedy of the year.”  I get depressed at the thought that they may be right.

This movie had some occasional one-liners that were funny, and there is definitely one line that I anticipate using a lot in the near future.  “Help me, I’m poor!”  Well, I guess I could at least identify with Annie from this perspective.  Still, the movie had far too much pointless bickering  and it just created lots of incredibly long drawn out scenes that annoyed me much more than it entertained me.

I did like the part where her friend came to drag Annie out of her pitiful state of mind.  “I’m trying to get you to fight for your shitty life!” she says to Annie.  I guess all of us have our ups and downs.  Sadly, I think I still haven’t hit the bottom yet, so I’m still bracing myself for impact.

How I felt while watching the movie:  annoyed.  Watchable, but don’t pay any money to watch it.
