Hilarious!!

My friend and I laughed hysterically, like school girls at this movie! At first I thought it was going to be a stinker, but it turns out there are some boring bits inbetween the incredibly funny bits. The groom's sister Megan (Melissa McCarthy) is sooo funny, she made the movie for me. If you are having a girly movie night with a few wines this is a must!

Great

I love Wigg in SNL so thought this would be pretty funny . . . I was quite wrong; it was very good! The jokes were literally laugh out loud and the story was one I have never seen in a movie before.

Hilarious!

The whole theatre was laughing out loud at some of the funny moments in this movie. Very 'obvious' physical humour but well worth a watch. I heard it referred to as 'Hangover' for girls, but I loved Hangover (as a girl) and reckon guys would get a laugh out of this one too. Some gross moments, some hilarious moments and some frustrating moments. Superb...

Have some moments

But over all to flat and nothing like the trailer promises.

A sluggish, charmless misfire in which even the most appealing players -- must try too hard to make anything close to an engaging impression.

From its opening sex scene and with the first words being spoken being about cupping a part of the anatomy, you can tell Bridesmaids is going to tread lightly.

It’s uneven, unwieldy and overlong, but if it’s yucks you’re after you’ll find them in abundance in a side-splitting comedy that lifts the veil on every wedding’s unsung heroines.

The movie is smart about a lot of things, including the vital importance of female friendships. And it's nice to see so many actresses taking up space while making fun of something besides other women.

Bridesmaids seems to be a more or less deliberate attempt to cross the Chick Flick with the Raunch Comedy. It definitively proves that women are the equal of men in vulgarity, sexual frankness, lust, vulnerability, overdrinking and insecurity.

For longtime Wiig fans, this uneven, overlong, emotionally involving and discreetly ambitious film will represent a welcome and overdue step up from her popular sketch work on "Saturday Night Live" to something sustained and searching, not to mention pretty funny.

Finally, a female ensemble comedy that balances realistic characters with smart laughs and side-splitting farce. Not everything works, but there’s more than enough here to keep you chuckling — not to mention baying for a sequel.
