Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph routinely bring down the house with their skits on “Saturday Night Live.” Ellie Kempter is the newest funny girl on “The Office.” Add three seasoned big-screen actresses to that mix and you have the makings of a comedy classic.
“Bridesmaids” follows Annie, played by Wiig, a single 30-something girl whose best friend, played by Rudolph, gets engaged. Annie is asked to be the maid of honor, and in turn deal with four drastically different bridesmaids. Though their personalities all clash, Annie is forced to bring them all together to make her best friend’s day perfect.
Behind the strong female cast is a very familiar name, that almost spells out success: producer Judd Apatow. Apatow has been behind many of the modern classic comedies, like “Anchorman,” “Superbad” and “Knocked Up.” Apatow has had very few flops, so when you he puts his name behind something you know it’s going to be funny.
If you are looking for a date movie this weekend, “Bridesmaids” would be the perfect candidate because it has a little something for everyone. There’s not a person in the room who won’t laugh.
