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.

Rafer Guzman
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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

If the Hangover movies confronted dudes' sheer terror at their own poor impulse control, then Bridesmaids plunges straight into the female heart of darkness.

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

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
