My latest cinema experience was the Hangover female version Bridesmaids with Kristen Wiig and Chris O’Dowd as the main couple. There were many other women in this one but most of them unknown except Melissa McCarthy who had the most uncomfortable role in this movie (and during her career I might add) along with her husband. That being said – the main issue that I have with this movie is the plot. I mean, really? The way it was played off was not bad, there were some funny moments and since I love British men, I enjoyed every scene that had Chris O’Down in it – sadly there wasn’t enough of him, most of the movie was about emptying themselves in the middle of the street and Kristen Wiig going crazy in the middle of a party.
It surprises me that this has the same score in IMDb that Horrible Bosses because I liked the last one a lot and even though, as my friend pointed out, I laughed a lot during Bridesmaids I really didn’t like this one as a story. Probably due to its stupid plot, the shallow characters and the weird friendship between the soon-to-be-bride and her best friend (Wiig). It was a two hour long dirty joke central where the only good things were O’Dowd’s accent and his pleasant character.
Taking this all into account I’m giving it a 2,5 out of 5 and even though I laughed, I wouldn’t call it a good movie (similar situation is with Knocked Up – laughed but it isn’t a good movie – ironic that Bridesmaids and Knocked Up share the same producer). So this feel good movie about yourself because you haven’t sat in the middle of the street doing the #2 isn’t something I’d watch again. But if you enjoy those kind of “oh-my-god-what-am-I-watching” comedies – go right ahead, this one has a lot of those moments when you just want to rewind some scenes.
