The Thing About Bridesmaids...

Weddings are supposed to be about the brides... But it can be about the bridesmaids, too.

Just like in this spectacularly hilarious 2011 film, the spotlight is on Annie (played by SNL's Kristen Wiig). When her best friend Lillian (also SNL alumni Maya Rudolph) got engaged, Annie suddenly has to keep up with her duties as maid of honor while her life practically spirals downhill.

She meets the other bridesmaids and winds up in a circus of events. She gains an archenemy, new friends, and a new shot on love and career. Oh it's a chick flick alright but don't let the pink and tulle fool you. This movie shows no limit on obscene, as-wild-as-the-boys comedy. I can't stop laughing at these ladies! 

Melissa McCarthy is definitely worth mentioning since she gives a great performance in her breakthrough role here. Wiig co-wrote the film, the superwoman that she is. It's also nice to see Rose Byrne's funny side. Apart from all these high notes, the story also has a speck of drama that teaches us a thing or two about life.

I think it's a good unconventional wedding movie. Kinda like the female-counterpart of The Hangover series but much better, if you ask me.

So why not include these Bridesmaids in your list (viewing list, that is) this June? :)
