Bridesmaids: Not That Good

I saw Bridesmaids today and I was sorely disappointed. This movie boasted good reviews and promised big laughs, but I just didn't get it. I thought it was dry and dirty. The f-word was dropped every couple of minutes and lots of sex scenes (no wonder why it was rated R). I wouldn't recommend that people pay a lot to go see it.
The movie is about a woman, Annie (Kristen Wigg) who is down on her luck and her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph) is going to get married. Annie has been made the maid of honor, but when she meets Lillian's new best friend, Helen (Rose Byrne) she has to compete with this woman who has it all. Helen is rich, married, pretty, and has the everything that Annie wants. While trying to be better than Helen, Annie messes everything up and almost ruins her relationship with Lillian. Along the way, Annie mets a nice cop and kind of falls in love with him.
I thought this movie would be better and after reading the reviews for it, I was very dissapointed and kind of grossed out in the movie. I only laughed at about 5 of the really funny parts, but most of the time I was kind of bored. The rest of the audience didn't laugh either, so I don't think I was so alone in my opinion.
Though I did see a funny trailer for a movie called What's Your Number? with Anna Faris and Chris Evans that looks pretty funny. It comes out Sept. 30. I will post the trailer for that movie. Chris Evans is pretty hot and he is going to be in Captain America soon, so go see that too.

  1. I didn't even hear anything about this movie until this blog post. I know you were expecting better because of the reviews, but when I saw the title of this post I thought, "Any movie titled "Bridesmaids" is bound to be bad."

    I guess I was right...lol

    I am excited for the Captain America movie though! And I like Chris Evans too! :)
