Weddings are obviously a hot topic these days. There was just a pretty big one two weeks ago, remember? And just in time for wedding season, there are this season’s wedding movie releases.
Bridesmaids, the Judd Apatow-produced gross-out chick flick, hits theaters today. I got to see it last week at a screening, and was asked to watch it with an eye on the fashion.
Before I get to that, a bit of background on the movie. Kristen Wiig stars as Annie, who has been BFF’s with Lilian (Maya Rudolph) since they were kids. Lilian got engaged and Annie is the maid of honor. The rest of the bridal party is made up of a ragtag group of Lilian’s friends, and hilarity ensues.
And this movie really is hilarious. Any film whose first line of dialogue is Jon Hamm saying, “Cup my balls” gets my vote. It does a really brilliant job of mixing absolutely disgusting scenes (without spoilers I will just say–wait for the bridal shop scene), clever dialogue, and some truly touching moments. The ending was a tribute to Sixteen Candles that made me want to weep with happiness.
