Movie Review: Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids (2011)
Annie is a loser mess with no dignity (she has weird flatmates, a vile boyfriend and she straddles gates). Her best friend Lillian is getting married and Annie is to be Maid of Honour. But she has a rival in the best friend and Maid of Honour stakes in the form of Helen (Rose Byrne). Cue cringe comedy as Annie shows how awful she is as she gives the bridesmaids food poisoning, messes up with a cute cop (Chris O’Dowd), gets the bridal party kicked off a plane and has a bizarre attachment to her vile boyfriend (Jon Hamm). But the skinny, perfect Helen and her over elaborate OTT ways drives Annie to breaking point. This results in Annie hitting bottom, a freak out at a party and a plot mandated friendship failure. But it all ends well with a hideous wedding dress and Wilson Phillips. This was okay, who knew Melissa McCarthy of ‘Gilmore Girls‘ had such a potty mouth?

Best Lines:
“Just slap it away.”

“Don’t sue me for touching you.”

“I’m going to climb that like a tree.”

“Get cheese from the nice part of the store.”

“Look away!”

“I’m not even confident which end that came out of.”

“I need to get off this white carpet.”

“It’s coming out of me like lava!”

“Have fun having a baby at your prom.”
“You look like an old mop.”
