Bridesmaids (2011)

I have had a crush on Kristen Wiig since the first time I saw her, on the awesomely underrated “Joe Schmo” show.  She’s funny, intelligent, self-deprecating, and gorgeous.  Seriously, if you don’t think Wiig is beautiful, you have unrealistic expectations of females and fuck off, nobody likes you.  Probably.  Anyways, she co-wrote this movie, and the wonderful Paul Feig directed it, and it was produced by Judd Apatow, so I had high expectations for it right off the bat.  Actually, when Thor came out, I wanted to see Bridesmaids instead, but nooooo the girl that I was going with wanted to see meaty superhero guys.  I didn’t get any action from that lil’ whatever they call it, not a date, but hanging out or, whatever.

Basically, this whole write-up could boil down to “OMG srsly guise, it’s soooo good!!!”  because one exclamation point is never enough and extraneous vowels are not needed (except in the word “so”).  I have nothing at all bad to say about the movie, other than it was a tad long (and that feels just nitpicky, because two hours is a decent length, right ladies?  RIGHT LADIES?).  All the supporting cast embraced their roles to perfection, namely the much-lauded scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy.  Oh and the awesome Jon Hamm, a right proper douchebag.

It’s not a revolutionary film in the execution or acting or comedy or anything, but I hope it is seen as a warning shot, wake-up call for Hollywood.  We shouldn’t have to suffer through 27 Dresses, Sweet Home Alabama or anything like that that diminishes how fuckin’ raunchy and real women can be.  And it’s not just raunch, it’s that hey, those people with boobs are people too, and a lot of them are fuckin’ funny.  I lost track of where I was going with this, but more please!
