The film is probably about 20 minutes too long and not every gag plays as well as it should have. Still, I found myself laughing a lot during "Bridesmaids."

Bridesmaids is, in equal parts, bawdy and authentic, all the way through.
November 10, 2018
It's a movie about women going berserk over a wedding. Easy non-feminist laughs are built right in there, and milked for all they're worth. No amount of sad female faces during lugubrious pop song interludes can make this more meaningful than it is.

Bridesmaids manages to take a seen-before storyline and turn it into something unpredictable, entertaining, and so completely wrong it feels right -- and very satisfying.

Really unsatisfying, mostly because the script by Ms. Wiig and Annie Mumolo completely ignores the movie's major issue: class.

Kristen Wiig has written a lead role for herself with some great awkward moments usually regulated for fools of the male variety. It's nice to see women can be just as boneheaded when the situation calls for it.

The director is sitcom vet Paul Feig but the auteur is star and co-writer Kristen Wiig, who takes center stage after displaying flashes of fuzzy brilliance.

Funny? Yes. But is revolting raunch really a step forward for women in Hollywood?

Sure, it neatly avoids a lot of the fluff found in many chick flicks and replaces it with crass shenanigans, but it adds touching moments when they're needed most, providing for a smart, less clichéd comedy.

Right now, Bridesmaids is the funniest movie of the year.

Bridesmaids has all the humanity that [Judd] Apatow projects usually lack.

Women are complex creatures, and Bridesmaids presents the reality of female friendship with a level of seriousness and due care that is all the more affecting for being so rare.

Although physical humor is a big part of the movie, Wiig shows a dramatic, darker side too. I have had high hopes for Wiig for a long time, and I'm really excited to see what she does next.

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.
June 14, 2016
If the Hangover movies confronted dudes' sheer terror at their own poor impulse control, then Bridesmaids plunges straight into the female heart of darkness.
March 14, 2016
Bridesmaids allows its female leads to be smart, sexy, hilarious and loveable.
July 19, 2015
Full of heart, warmth and enough excrement to fill an all-white bridal shop.
June 30, 2015
Through a combination of smart performances and scurrilous gags Bridesmaids yanks the buddy comedy from the hands of its traditional owners.
June 30, 2015
All that straining for ribaldry feels a little sad, like Feig and his actors know they're sacrificing honesty for coarse bumptiousness.
