The result is a comedy on the competitive nature of female friendship that is aggressively uneven: sometimes smart, occasionally tender, and -- once or twice -- so self-consciously ballsy that I found myself chuckling out of sheer embarrassment.

The sweet, blissful buzz that accompanies the end of this comedy masterpiece will make you feel like you've just watched your own best friend get happily married.

If the Hangover movies confronted dudes' sheer terror at their own poor impulse control, then Bridesmaids plunges straight into the female heart of darkness.

Bridesmaids allows its female leads to be smart, sexy, hilarious and loveable.

Full of heart, warmth and enough excrement to fill an all-white bridal shop.

Through a combination of smart performances and scurrilous gags Bridesmaids yanks the buddy comedy from the hands of its traditional owners.

All that straining for ribaldry feels a little sad, like Feig and his actors know they're sacrificing honesty for coarse bumptiousness.

The dialogue, even when it's in questionable taste, snaps with intelligence.

The big, brash laughs are coupled with a smart insight into women's friendships.

Bridesmaids, co-written by Wiig and Annie Mumolo and directed by Freaks and Geeks creator Paul Feig, is as solid as any other comedy from Team Apatow.

[Wiig's] is the comedy of panic, paranoia, madness and self-loathing, but her trick in the new film Bridesmaids is to remain composed even as her heart is shredded to confetti.
Veronica Lee

For laughs per minute and a believable representation of how women interact, it's to be heartily recommended.

Kristen Wiig deserves much of the credit for Bridesmaids, but the laurels belong to Judd Apatow. He is the Billy Wilder of contemporary Hollywood and Bridesmaids is his Some Like It Hot.

Unashamedly smart... Bridesmaids has been hailed as a groundbreaking blow for American female cinema. That says a lot about the extent of Hollywood's current conservatism, but for now, Bridesmaids does nicely as a tonic corrective.

Wiig's characters may lose their lunch, but they never lose their heart.
Robert Horton

It's a Hollywood truism that they almost never give Oscar nominations for slapstick comedy. They won't give one to Kristen Wiig for this movie, either. But they should.

Hopefully next time they'll ditch the crass interludes and shoot one from the heart.

Here is Kristen Wiig's star turn. She co-writes, co-produces and headlines Bridesmaids, playing a woman who's, I dunno, roughly 26 percent comedically psychotic, but not so loony that she goes over the edge from sympathetic to repellent.

Bridesmaids produces frequent waves of hilarious vulgarity as it tells a sweet, endearing story about a woman suffering through a pre-mid-life crisis.

Bridesmaids is grossly funny.
