Starring Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. Kristen also co-wrote the film with her friend Annie Mumolo. She is super woman!

A funny movie with funny ladies that covers the delicate dynamics of girlfriends.

My take:
Awesome. I hate how they are marketing this movie as the ‘Hangover,’ but with ladies. They are getting ready for a wedding, and there is raunchy humor, but Bridesmaids is so much more! I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was a solid plot and some very real/true moments about women friendships.  I will say it again…women friendships are complicated!

Look out for:
Melissa McCarty. You might remember her as Lauren Graham’s friend Sookie from Gilmore Girls. Every friend I have talked to has said, “She stole the movie!” I love her.

You will like it if:
1.    You are a man or a woman – guys this is not a sappy girl power “chick flick.” It is just a good movie
2.    You love Kristen Wiig on SNL
3.    You are a woman who has at any point in her life felt a little left behind in “life.”
4.    You like funny movies

Would I go with my mom:
Warning: The first 5 minutes are raunchy. I called my mother and warned her…there is language…and sex, but I told her to please look past and enjoy the movie. My mother loved it, but as expected she did not like the dirty language or the “raunchiness.” She did say there were a lot of “real” moments.

Will I buy it?
I will see again in theaters…and buy it the DAY it is out!
