Bridesmaids

I finally saw Bridesmaids. My love for Rebel Wilson brought me to it, and even though she only had a small part in it, I'm really glad I did it. She was hilarious and charming and she makes everything enjoyable. But let's focus at the brilliance of Kristen Wiig. For her to come up with such an entertaining script, while also touching people is truly majestic. It was genuine and it really came from a real place, I thought. Sure, she must've written it for pure entertainment purposes, but I am also sure the depth of it came from something real and experienced. I should also acknowledge Kristen's co-writer Annie Mumolo. Both of them did very well!

First allow me to really get into the cast. I think they've been friends since they also did another movie "Friends with Kids," but seeing Chris O'Dowd, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig was such a blast. The movie was exploding with all things good and positive. The chemistry of these three with Rose Byrne and Melissa McCarthy was just heaven on a screen. It was that amazing. All of them were strong individuals who gave something memorable to the movie. I especially appreciated McCarthy's performance. What a babe!

For those who don't know, Bridesmaids is a movie about....bridesmaids. The main plot of the story revolved around how the bride's best friend tried to compete with the bride's new friend. That led to them trying to outshine each other. Sounds simple enough? Good cause it's really a simple movie. However, don't equate simplicity with dullness. This movie was anything but that. It also had different layers like life evaluations, hitting rock bottom, rising up and accepting the challenge. I think it's relatable, which is probably why it became a huge success.

This is just a short post. I have to be somewhere. But I really wanted to put this up now. I'll see if I'll be able to edit it later today to justify how much I enjoyed the movie. But here's what you need to know. It's a fun movie, Wiig, Wilson, Rudolph, O'Dowd and McCarthy were very god in it, and it made hundreds of millions. If that doesn't convince you, I don't know what would. But seriously, it's a good one!
