I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Bridesmaids is apparently the most important female movie of our time. Why? Because the Hollywood gods have decided to wait to see how well it does at the box office before deciding on the fate of other female scripted screenplays. That’s just silly. Bridesmaids isn’t the ultimate women’s movie. But apparently it is contentious. According to Jamie Denbo,
“Bridesmaids is not a “chick flick”. It’s a “flick” that happens to have chicks in it.”
Touche! Also, people are getting all riled up about comparing this pre-wedding movie to the male bachelor party movie The Hangover.
And they are very different movies. For instance, Bridesmaids is far less coherent than The Hangover. But there is good news!
Bridesmaids is often hilarious. Also, news flash: this movie is called BRIDESMAIDS. And so we are ranking it on the Chick Flick Check List. Enjoy!
(For the record, I’m still wondering why those promo dresses never showed up in the movie.)
I feel like I’m the only person in America who hasn’t seen this yet. I can’t ever remember a movie that’s been test-screened for audiences this much. I must be a total L-O-S-E-R.
