Maid of Dishonor

12 May

Like going to a friend of your girlfriend’s wedding, the movie Bridesmaids goes on too long and it’s filled with all kinds of jokes that she may find funny, but at which you barely crack a smile.

Produced by Judd Apatow and co-written by star Kristen Wiig, the film tells the story of Annie, a single woman whose luck only gets worse when her best friend from childhood, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), gets engaged. Forced to deal with a motley group of fellow bridesmaids (including an ultracompetitive one who wants to be maid of honor), Annie finds herself and Lillian drifting apart.

Chick flick? You betcha. And as noted, the film just goes on waaaaaay too long. Thankfully, this review will keep it short.

I’m giving Bridesmaids a C–.
