the film does have many moments of humour along with a bucket full of smutt, think the latter does take over a bit full-on at times.
the story tells the tale of 'Annie'(Kristen Wiig) who's best friend 'Lillian'(Maya Rudolph) is about to get married, 'Annie' is asked to be maid of honour.
'Five' bridesmaids in all, well, a certain amount of bitching and competition is threatening to ruin the brides big-day.
'Annie' is having a tough time in life, no stable relationship, a lost business, a duff car among many downsides to her life, now her friendship with 'Lillian' feels under threat.....
A few laugh out loud moments along the way.....worth a spin.

I did not see the trailer for this film, but from reading other reviews I get the impression viewers were expecting laugh-out-loud hilarity. Not the case. It's more of a slow burner. But that's not a bad thing.

The premise of the story is based around Annie (Kristen Wiig) who is maid of honour for her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph). But it's when Lillian introduces Annie to her new friend Helen (Rose Byrne) that the drama and rivalry ensues. They compete for who can impress Lillian the most. Annie goes on a path of destruction, losing her job, getting kicked out of her flat, messing up her romantic relationships and losing her best friend. But, of course, she turns it all around (would be quite a depressing film if she didn't!).

There are some excellent moments in the film and excellent characters. Annie's flat mates Brynn and Gil (Rebel Wilson and Matt Lucas) are this odd brother and sister from England who decide to chuck Annie out of the flat because they think they are too old to live together with a flat-mate - so they are going to live together, alone (work that one out!). They actually look like brother and sister, so the casting is spot on.

Megan (Melissa McCarthy, Molly from Mike and Molly) is one of the bridesmaids and the brides' sister-in-law to be, and she is hilarious as a character and an actress. The way she delivers her lines is dry and perfectly timed.

What I think disappointed most viewers is the fact that the film is not full of running jokes. However, what I enjoyed most about the film was the realism to certain situations, the awkwardness when you first meet someone, where you talk over each other and babble on.

I had heard that this was a hilarious comedy, so saved it to watch with a friend. We each smiled a couple of times and ended up wondering what all the hype was about.

Was looking forward to seeing this but thought the film was disappointing, it dragged in the middle, a few laughs but nothing on the scale of Hangover 1 & 2
I would not recommend it

Okay, i never usually review on much things but i want to talk specifically to anybody deciding to buy this DVD. I'm nearly 18 and i was told this movie was next best thing and truly hilarious. It had a few funny scenes and when i say a few i mean like 1 or 2 scenes that made me giggle. I didn't think it was hilarious, not even close. I was a bit disappointed. People reading this will probably shug this review off and move onto a 5 star review which it looks like there are plenty of and i don't understand, where we watching the same movie? I did however like the romance side to the movie involving Officer Rhodes. Maybe thats because i'm a sucker for romance but it saved this movie in my opinion. Without that storyline, i don't believe there would be a storyline at all. I may watch this movie in the future but i won't be holding my breath in excitement anytime soon. I hope this review helped, honestly i do.

A really funny film depicting childhood friends Annie and Lillian. Lillian is getting married and Annie is her Maid of Honour who is truly out of her depth. Wonderful performances by Melissa McCarthy who is the sister in law of the bride to be Lillian and cringe worthy comedy at the Bridal shop following a horrendous meal arranged by Annie. A must see for all potential brides!

There are some genuinely very funny moments and good characters but the hype surrounding this movie left such a high expectation it didn't satisfy. Certainly wasn't a female Hangover, in fact the plot was much more melancholy than I expected.

I wouldn't watch again and that for me says rent rather than buy.

Bridemaids (2011) is unfunny. It's unfortunately one of those time-wasting films where the characters talk very quickly and/or very oddly (sometimes whilst eating or gulping something), they talk in a sketchy way, and there is not a single funny thing said or done (if you can make out what they have said because the audio is low).

It is two hours of boredom for the most part with one or two cretinous attempts at crude sex jokes (the very first scene being an example - it just looks like hard arduous work to make this film). Time goes by so slowly watching it.
There is no coherent funny thing strung here - even the awkward situational comedy isn't pulled off by Kristen Wiig and co and it's easy to see why - she's no Will Ferrell. This isn't worth any comparison to Hangover - it has random sketches you wonder what on earth the director was thinking (in the first twenty minutes of the film for example).

The female actors are uncharismatic, the acting is hammy and the characters look forced and I also found the plot and narration to be weak and uninspiring.

It is a horrible choice for an evening watch with friends or family - there are zero laughs and you will soon find yourselves bored, making a cup of tea, and doing other things. Don't be fooled by the DVD cover and it's attempt at fun - watching this is a real hard slog.

The bonus features on this one disc include an unrated version of the film and a "gag reel" which are rubbish.

Looking at the reviews quoted on the DVD cover - your suspicions should be aroused when you have "Daily Star" saying "10 out of 10. very very VERY funny!"
It was a total waste of time and I would gladly not buy this film. Shame on you Universal.
