| A Bang-A-Rangin' Expedition With A Rendezvous With Comedy!!!
The title 'Bridesmaids' was a little misleading at first, me and probably everyone else who only heard the title was instantly thinking 'chick flick'. I'd like to make it clear right now, just because a movie has a female cast, that doesn't automatically make it a chick flick (not bashing that sub genre, just clarifying). It was a bit on the rom-com side, but most comedies are. Anyway, once the trailer started and i saw that the brilliance of Apatow and Feig were collaborating, i had to see it. From beginning to end i couldn't stop laughing, the cast was perfect, especially Kristen Wiig. It's as if the jokes were tailored to her comedic style, which is probably due to her involvement in the writing process. What was really great about this movie, which is a large part of any comedy movie being successful, Bridesmaids is infinitely quotable!! (supposed to be all caps, but IMDb told me i couldn't shout hahah but i love shouting!!!!). Seriously, i saw it a few days ago at an advanced screening, and haven't been able to stop talking about it. Instant classic, cant wait to see it again.

Trivia

On the film's 10th anniversary, Paul Feig admitted he had never heard the song Hold On before working on Bridesmaids, it was suggested by multiple cast and crew members for the scene at the wedding in which they hoped to have an artist appear and perform their own song. He said it was an excellent suggestion, as the song fit with the film's theme so well, and luckily Wilson-Phillips agreed to come sing it.


Quotes

Annie: I'm glad you called.
Ted: I'm so glad you were free.
Annie: I love your eyes.
Ted: Cup my balls.


Goofs

(possibly intended) At the bridal shower, the waiter offers Annie a glass of champagne, saying 'It's French'. All champagne is French, otherwise it is called 'sparkling wine'. It is possible, though, that Helen's snobbery and wishes to impress had her tell the waiters to specify to the guests that the champagne did indeed come from France.


Alternate Versions

The 131-minute unrated version contains several additional scenes as follows:

  • The conversation between Annie (Kristen Wiig) and Mother (Jill Clayburgh) is slightly longer with Mother telling her about Father's "chicken coop" sex act, and it also reveals that Annie's father grew up in a farm.
  • Becca (Ellie Kemper) mocks Annie for being single and offers to arrange a date for her.
  • The car ride with Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and Annie after the bridal store fiasco is longer and different than the theatrical version. In the new cut, after Lilian admits crapping her wedding dress, Annie starts to feel uncomfortable, gets out of the car and throws up.
  • When Annie is at the bathroom, Gil (Matt Lucas) and his sister were in the bathtub together. He asks Annie to hand her the disposable shaver and shaves his sister's armpits.
  • There's a new 5-minute scene where Annie has a date with a guy called Pete. While waiting at the living room for Pete to get ready, she has a very uncomfortable conversation with his son Taylor (he's talking about "fear of dying", asking about Annie replacing his mother, etc.). After Annie goes upstairs, she overhears Pete talking on the phone telling his wife how he missed her and describes Annie as unattractive. Shocked by that, she went back downstairs and saw Taylor taking some contraceptive pills before leaving the house hastily.
  • The home video of Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and Jon (Ben Falcone) is slightly longer. She sticks a slice of ham on his chest and eats them. However, Jon's reaction doesn't tell whether he likes it or not.
