Bridesmaids

Judd Apatow (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) produced comedy about a group of bridesmaids and their misguided attempt to throw a wedding party for their friend.

Saturday Night Live regular Kristen Wiig (also the co-writer here) leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony.

A sluggish, charmless misfire in which even the most appealing players -- must try too hard to make anything close to an engaging impression.

From its opening sex scene and with the first words being spoken being about cupping a part of the anatomy, you can tell Bridesmaids is going to tread lightly.

It’s uneven, unwieldy and overlong, but if it’s yucks you’re after you’ll find them in abundance in a side-splitting comedy that lifts the veil on every wedding’s unsung heroines.

The movie is smart about a lot of things, including the vital importance of female friendships. And it's nice to see so many actresses taking up space while making fun of something besides other women.

Bridesmaids seems to be a more or less deliberate attempt to cross the Chick Flick with the Raunch Comedy. It definitively proves that women are the equal of men in vulgarity, sexual frankness, lust, vulnerability, overdrinking and insecurity.

For longtime Wiig fans, this uneven, overlong, emotionally involving and discreetly ambitious film will represent a welcome and overdue step up from her popular sketch work on "Saturday Night Live" to something sustained and searching, not to mention pretty funny.

Finally, a female ensemble comedy that balances realistic characters with smart laughs and side-splitting farce. Not everything works, but there’s more than enough here to keep you chuckling — not to mention baying for a sequel.
