This review is from: Bridesmaids (Extended Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
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.

Perhaps some of the relationship humour lends itself to someone who's 'lived a little more life' but at 39 (forever) I thought it was pretty funny.

I'm older than you, Dee and I didn't find it particularly funny. It was much too crude for my taste. Certainly my life hasn't been much like this and I'm very happy with that.

Totally get what you mean! It is a good film but I think there was just too much hype about it coming out that people had higher expectations about it, at least my mum and I did. There is a few funny scenes but I have seen funnier.

I don't think age has much to do with it (i'm 37). I found the humour a bit silly and immature. Not a bad film at all, it was entertaining, but I didn't laugh out loud once and it's seriously stretching it to call this ground-breaking as some have done.

I have to say I felt much the same about this movie, after receiving rave reviews from my 18 year old daughter and friends - I thought I'd buy the movie and was utterly disappointed especially when it got to the part where the C word was said - that did it for me!! Why oh Why do movies have to resort to using such a foul word and especially "Chick flicks"

I'm with you 100% there, I found very few scenes actually made me laugh and the rare best bits were shown in the advert! I didn't like or relate to the main character but enjoyed the romance between her and Officer Rhodes!

I thought it was one huge disappointment. If you saw the trailer you had seen the film. Kirsten Wiig was thoroughly unlikeable as a main character and who keeps their bra on when having sex? Gimme a break! It lacked any kind of wit and was just a gross out comedy with women instead of men - a genre which outstayed its welcome after about one movie. What Rose Byrne was doing in it after such great work in Damages was beyond me - shows actors are only as good as the script.

Clearly, this movie made millions of dollars, there are 361 reviews as of today, so it just can't be a bad movie. It depends on your taste. It also depends on what your expectations are before you watch it. I found it really weird at first but even before it was over, I wanted to watch it again, and after the second time I found it really really funny.

A spurious argument "it made money so it must be good"! Gimme a break!
