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.

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

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

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

Bridesmaids won't be the defining moment of Wiig's career, but it serves to prove that the actress has the potential to carry a movie. She just needs a comedy worth carrying.

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.

Is it funny? Yes, at times, and its female-centric theme will appeal to many women. I just hope they have the patience to trudge through the slow spots and story detours. Bridesmaids, which might as easily bear the title Women Behaving Badly

By filling the plot hole of Lillian's cluelessness with explosive diarrhea, the film undermines the whole "Apatowian Female Comedy" idea.

I suspect that Wiig is funnier when she's not so frenetically intent on finding 101 ways to make a fool of herself.

Bridesmaids falters long before the alter.

...Bridesmaids would've been far, far better off had it been trimmed down to a more manageable running time.

Apatow continues his assault on gentility and good taste with this roll in the gutter that degrades women. The sad part is that there is a good, sweet movie lurking here behind all the vulgarity.

The attempt to apply the male slob template to female characters is dispiriting, and it's more depressing to think it will probably be a great success,

...one of the most moronic, ineptly made and oft-times revolting movies to be released this year.

Unfortunately, "Bridesmaids" bears the hallmark of Apatow's more recent, less successful efforts by being overlong (two hours and five minutes is way, way too long for a comedy like this) and having an uneven tone.
May 15, 2011
Too many of its strained comic bits were more of a miss than a hit.

it just felt like Bridesmaids had something to prove

Cringe-inducing, uneven, juvenile, overlong and painfully unfunny. It's a witless blend of crudeness, rudeness and lewdness which sets a new low for American comedy.

[T]he kernels of a truly smart, truly honest, truly brilliant movie are here, and they get lost in what has become the standard Hollywood humiliation comedy...

By the time two hours had dragged by, I felt a lot like I had sat through a five-hour wedding.
