Ok, that was five things.
Although Bridesmaids looks a bit like The Hangover for chicks, I like that this film is taking on the absurdity of the Wedding Industrial Complex (a term I learned from Indiebride.com) with a cast of smart and hilarious women. Most wedding films provide stories about women who all seem to have been implanted with a Wedding Planning Brain Chip which honestly, I felt like I was lacking when it came to being a bridesmaid in others weddings or even planning my own! This cast of bridesmaids seem to have their own ideas about weddings, being married or single, and generally just seem to be trying to survive through the planning of this event. Trust me, wine is part of the wedding emergency kit!
Bridesmaids opens May 13, 2011.
