Bridesmaid is one of 2011’s most acclaimed movies for its female-driven, raunchy story and brilliant cast, featuring the comedic talents of Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wigg, Maya Rudolph as well as Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne and Wendi McLendon-Covey. Following the story of a down-on-her-luck bridesmaid, this movie’s wit and classic humor is unsurpassed in 2011.
The worst nightmare of all girls, and the one that they will never admit to their gal-pals; being that perpetual bridesmaid, year after year after year. Unfortunately for Annie (Kristen Wigg), that’s exactly her case. But this time, it’s her best friend’s wedding that helps her see her sad state of loneliness and underachievement.
But when the bride, Lillian (Maya Rudolph) gets together her cast of over-the-top, conflicting personalities for her bridesmaids, things start to crumble for everybody as Annie has to compete with “perfect” woman, Helen (Rose Byrne). Her life beginning to crumble, Annie begins ruining one event after another, first their trip to Vegas, then the bridal shower. After some heavy soul-searching, Annie reenters the picture in an unforgettably hilarious fashion.
Directed by Paul Feig, Bridesmaid has been hailed as one of the best R-rated, female-driven comedies of all time by Jeff Bayer. With the outrageous nature of the film, Bridesmaid is up there in that top echelon of comedy-movies, making a great female partner for another male-driven classic, The Hangover. Bridesmaid makes it on our list of the funniest movies of 2011.
