    Default Bridesmaids - the movie?

    Loved it. The funniest movie I have ever seen (although very crude ). Anyone else?
    It's all fun and games until someone pulls a shoe....

    Saw it yesterday and I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a movie. You can tell that Kristin Wiig and Maya Rudolph really are friends in real life. John Hamm was such a dick! I have heard interviews with him and he is not only gorgeous but has a super sense of humor.

    It was SOOOOOO funny. Me and my best friend saw it last week. Laughed so hard I almost peed a little.

    Default saw it Saturday with Mr. Marianne

    I laughed so hard. He even admitted there were inside "girl" jokes that he only knew to laugh when only the women laughed in the audience. I would see it again. Especially with my sister in law who has three boys. I really like the expressions on Wiig's face in the beginning scenes.

    I saw Bridesmaids on Saturday with my sister and my mom. It was hysterical! I haven't laughed out loud in a movie so much in so long.

    I was also pleasantly surprised to see the theater nearly full. I know it is a holiday, but this was a 7pm Saturday movie in an 18 screen theater. I had not even heard of this movie until my sister suggested it.

    Big thumbs up from me too.

    The groom's sister (the hefty one) was the best character.

    Thumbs down Longest two hours of my life.

    Absolutely the WORST movie I've ever suffered through.

    The whole crux of the movie is the kind of cringe-making, sophomoric bathroom humor that makes Animal House look like serious cinematic art. Don't waste your time or money. I'm p!$$ed as hell that that's two hours of my life that I will never get back.

    I thought about seeing it, but I just don't find Kristin Wiig funny. At all. I thought the season finale of SNL was the funniest episode of that show in a long time, and then I realized she was barely in it. Coincidence? I think not.

    Funniest movie I have seen in a while! There were times when I worried that I would pee my pants, I was laughing so hard.

    P.S. I don't like Kristin Wigg on SNL much, ether. But this was still one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.

    I agree. Positively awful.

    And for the record, I'm a huge Animal House fan and consider that a classic. I almost left multiple times, but my friend was the one that drove--had to stay.

    This was my reaction to The Hangover...which almost everyone said was the funniest movie they had ever seen. I don't go to movies much....

    I laughed so hard through the whole thing, it is truly one of the funniest I've seen in as long as I can remember. I went to see it by myself and afterwards wished I'd taken a friend. Great movie!!

    Hey, I LOVE Animal House - own it on DVD, as a matter of fact.

    I misspoke - to compare Bridesmaids to Animal House is like comparing Ishtar to Tootsie - not even in the same universe.

    It looks funny, but honestly I'm a little tired of the SNL spin off movies, so I doubt I'll bother seeing it. I dislike Kristin Wiig, something about her is like nails on the chalkboard to me.

    Disgusting. My friend called it the female version of "The Hangover". A few characters are funny, I will say that. The dialogue is 12 year old boy...this is a chick flick for pre-teen boys.

    Sheesh! So weird that people hated it! I guess my grandma wouldn't like it, but weird!
