Annie's life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian's maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The star and co-writer of Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig, puts herself and her female co-stars through the comedy wringer."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"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."
‑ Leah Rozen, TheWrap
"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."
‑ John Serba,
"The result is a very funny movie, part indie comedy and part frat-girl raunch (it was co-produced by Judd Apatow), that manages to get at some of the sly truths of female friendship."
‑ Jay Stone,
"This is one smart script, brought to life by director Paul Feig and working on many levels. Where it sometimes works best is in the gutter."
‑ Michael Smith, Tulsa World
"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."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"An effortless blend of bad taste and good humour with a wholly believable, often very touching emotional core, all centred around one of the finest star-making comic performances in recent memory."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"Bridesmaids produces frequent waves of hilarious vulgarity as it tells a sweet, endearing story about a woman suffering through a pre-mid-life crisis."
‑ Dann Gire, Daily Herald (IL)
"At 125 minutes, Bridesmaids is unusually long for what is supposedly a raunchy comedy, and that's because the story steadfastly builds characters instead of knocking them down."
‑ Craig Mathieson,
"Bridesmaids is being touted as a female version of The Hangover. That's an unfair bar to set, given how easily these ladies sail over it."
‑ Alynda Wheat, People Magazine
"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."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"The movie is uneven and lurching, but it provides many laughs."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Bridesmaids is grossly funny."
‑ Mal Vincent, The Virginian-Pilot
"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."
‑ Kirk Baird, Toledo Blade
"Kristen Wiig is brilliant."
‑ Ryan Carey, Paste Magazine
