Consensus: A marriage of genuine characters, gross out gags, and pathos, Bridesmaids is a female-driven comedy that refuses to be boxed in as Kristen Wiig emerges as a real star.

Newsday

The star and co-writer of Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig, puts herself and her female co-stars through the comedy wringer.

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.

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

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.

Tom Huddleston
Time Out

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.

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

Denver Post

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.

The movie is uneven and lurching, but it provides many laughs.

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

Infectiously funny, sarcastic and charming, Bridesmaids is a laugh-out-loud comedy. The film sprouts its gags and potential from its cast (Wiig, Rudolph,… More

This is an okay comedy. Much of the humor revolves around back and forth passive-aggression and random situations that don't develop the story, but it has… More

The basis for this broad comedy ;) is women laughing with women about some of their perceived life foibles. Life long single friends face a bit of a rocky road… More

This might feature a mostly female cast and involve the road to a wedding as the main plot, but this is most certainly not a chick flick. It is instead a very… More

This is the first guy (or should I say dude) film with an (almost) all-female cast. So that's something. That being said, I don't really care for guy… More
