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!

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 bought this for my girlfriend a couple of years ago in response to her telling me that she wanted to watch it after seing the trailer (always the case!).

It's got a reasonably decent cast and has a severely exaggerated story line (as you would expect!). My girlfiend though it was funny whilst I though that it was trying it's best to making it funny without doing it naturally in any way and it came across as very extremely fake. I really enjoy Mike and Molly as Molly in particular is very funny in it. She's nowhere near as funny in this and overall I thought it was "OK" with several areas for improvement.

Verdict: 5/10

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.

This film is really quite poor. It doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. There's a decent romcom struggling to get out - woman going through a bad time is made to feel even worse by the events leading up to her best friend's wedding - but this is lost among all the gross-out humour (particularly the extended food-poisoning episode) which felt like it was aimed at 14-year-old boys. Because of the latter, it's not a "chick-flick" - but it's not a lads' film either. It feels like the makers either were forced to compromise to aim for the widest possible audience, or just didn't know what kind of film they wanted to make. A shame, because I was rooting for the characters - it could have been much much better. Not recommended for anyone, really.

I saw the trailer for this film and thought it looked like a right laugh but was very dissapionted when I watched it to find that nearly ALL the scenes they use for the trailer are NOT in the film!?!? It was a good watch but as was falsly advertised and not as funny as I thought it would be have to rate it as such.

After all the hype, I was really looking forward to watching Bridesmaids, but I was sorely disappointed. It was billed in some places as the female version of The Hangover, but it does not match up to The Hangover (or, in fact, The Hangover 2). Don't get me wrong, it is watchable and there are a couple of cringe-worthy, laugh-out-loud moments, but it is not as funny as I had been led to believe.

This film wasnt nearly as funny as i thought it would be, so feel a bit let down. The lead character is a complete cringe but i did like the romantic subplot between her and the officer (Roy from the IT crowd), i would wait for it to go down in price before purchasing.
