The star and co-writer of Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig, puts herself and her female co-stars through the comedy wringer.

Kristen Wiig is brilliant.

Bridesmaids is likely to be a hit with both women and men, being half formula chick-flick, half raunchy comedy of humiliation. It's hilarious -- and too bifurcated to be satisfying.

Onetime Saturday Night Live castmates Wiig and Rudolph make Annie and Lillian's friendship believable. Which is why Annie's shenanigans are sad -- and hilarious.

Austin American-Statesman

Over the past couple of years, the R-rated comedy genre seemed to stale a bit, suffering a slight affliction of monotony. Seems all it needed was a woman's touch.

A terrific comedy, zany, ribald and fearless in just about every way you'd want a comedy to be.

Bridesmaids is a reminder that fresh content is still alive and well, especially when it's delivered by a group of talented actresses.

This is "Her Hangover," a smarter and sweeter stumble to the altar that never quite gets to Vegas, and doesn't seem to mind.

There's a full spectrum of emotions on show: how many comedies with a gag involving projectile vomit and diarrhoea can say that?

El humor de Damas en guerra se parece por momentos al de la comedia masculina más guarra, escatología incluida, aunque también hay lugar para los sentimientos y hasta el romanticismo.

Laramie Movie Scope

It shows the dark side of people to a surprising extent for a comedy. It isn't exactly a black comedy or a dark comedy, but it does explore the way that friends can sometimes become jealous and sabotage each other.

Kristen Wiig, between her screenplay and fearlessly funny performance, gives nothing less than a tour de force.

Bridesmaids is a very funny movie, with interesting characters and great performances, but the film's pacing issues make it more of a chore to get through than expected.

I like that Bridesmaids aspires to be more than just a dumb comedy, but that doesn't mean it needs to belabor its point for what feels like eons.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Paul Feig's Bridesmaids ends up living in the memory like most weddings do; you went, you had a pleasant time, and unless somebody mentions the happy couple, you never think about the experience again.

I laughed almost without pause; at several points I made horselike snorting sounds that hurt the insides of my nose.

Whether it says something incisive about female friends and their inability to truly feel comfortable and rise above petty jealousies and competition, Bridesmaids never achieves the wolf pack camaraderie that The Hangover executes so naturally.

There are things to like here and the idea is a noble one. But in execution, "Bridesmaids" is a typical chick flick just with some extra rude words and vomit.

At 125 minutes, 'Bridesmaids' is long for a comedy, but it earns its running time by fully developing its characters and their relationships ...

The movie won't change your life or grab a fistful of Oscar nominations come next winter. But it will make you laugh, hard and often, and it proves that sometimes girls just want to have fun.
