More Info:
  • Amy Biancolli

    A film of great hilarity, humanity, idiosyncrasy and grade-A, eyebrow-singeing raunch.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Through it all -- the free-form conversations, the brilliant set pieces, the preposterous gross-outs, the flawless performances -- Kristen Wiig's forlorn maid of honor, Annie, seeks her own destiny with a wrenchingly cockeyed passion.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    See it because it's f---ing hilarious.

    Slate Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Bridesmaids is hilariously funny, but what makes it exhilarating is how boldly it defies that conventional wisdom about what men and women like.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    She's an Everywoman you can believe in, showcased in the kind of deft comedy of feminine passion - where deep despair meets Wilson Phillips - that a great many people have been waiting for. Now that Wiig and company have built it, will they come?

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    And at its loony best, Wiig and Mumolo's script hurls a torrent of bridesmaid-zilla set pieces at us, playing out like a "Sex and the City 3" read-through gone deliciously awry.

    From the first overheated moments of's clear we're in for that rarest of treats: an R-rated romantic comedy from the Venus point of view.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Todd Gilchrist

    A breakthrough comedy, a four-square piece of populist fun that ranks as quite possibly the best mainstream American comedy in years-at least since "The 40-Year-Old Virgin."

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    In an age of doggedly unambitious comedy, one marvels at the finesse these first-time screenwriters and director Feig bring to marrying raunch, romantic comedy, and the tested but ever-true bond between women.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Kristen Wiig is the best sketch comic alive, and Bridesmaids should finally make her a movie star.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Bridesmaids seems to be a more or less deliberate attempt to cross the Chick Flick with the Raunch Comedy. It definitively proves that women are the equal of men in vulgarity, sexual frankness, lust, vulnerability, overdrinking and insecurity.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    Finally, a female ensemble comedy that balances realistic characters with smart laughs and side-splitting farce. Not everything works, but there's more than enough here to keep you chuckling - not to mention baying for a sequel.

    Empire Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The movie is smart about a lot of things, including the vital importance of female friendships. And it's nice to see so many actresses taking up space while making fun of something besides other women.

  • Mary Pols

    This might be a turning point in feminism and comedy, provided that both sexes can embrace it.

    Time Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There are laughs aplenty, some disgusting, some rather sweet, some both at the same time.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Mary Elizabeth Williams

    It's a movie that succeeds, often beautifully, not by forcing its characters to be as naughty and gross and pathetic as men are. It soars by letting them be as naughty and gross and pathetic as women are. Three cheers for equality. Full Review
  • Siri Agrell

    Like Apatow's best work, this is about friendships – only this group of loveable misfits wear matching purple gowns.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Those looking to get a raucous laugh should say "I do" to Bridesmaids.

    USA Today Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    Bridesmaids follows the lead of other Apatow productions and finds much of its comedy in pain, horrifying awkwardness and the difficult work that goes into building and maintaining relationships. If you liked this in "Knocked Up," you'll probably like it here.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Wiig has the natural beauty and self-deprecating expressiveness it takes to be a star comedienne; she spends much of Bridesmaids looking like a slightly girlier version of Lucinda Williams.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    It's no surprise that Bridemaids sputters, coughs, and lurches, but it's a winning shambles, buoyed by a sharp, balanced comedic ensemble and some truthful observations about how close friends adapt when their lives fall out of step.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Like many Apatow films, Bridesmaids has a rambling, disjointed quality, crammed with sequences that elicit laughs without advancing plot.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Kristen Wiig is an indisputable goddess of comedy. And this rowdy fem-friendship movie she stars in and wrote with Annie Mumolo is infused with the Wiig brand of wicked mischief.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Proving girls can get just as down and dirty as boys, the wedding comedy Bridesmaids contains some uproarious moments of gross-out humor.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Wiig's natural and savvy instincts to go easy, and let the audience come to her, serve her and Bridesmaids well.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Bridesmaids is a bit of a groundbreaker... Not exactly a banner for feminism but equal time is overdue.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Bridesmaids openly, comfortably turns the stress of being girlfriends into comedy. It's really about the single friend backing away from the edge of temporary insanity. This isn't the greatest such movie. That would be Nicole Holofcener's "Walking and Talking" (1996), with Catherine Keener and Anne Heche.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    This is "Her Hangover," a smarter and sweeter stumble to the altar that never quite gets to Vegas, and doesn't seem to mind.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    For longtime Wiig fans, this uneven, overlong, emotionally involving and discreetly ambitious film will represent a welcome and overdue step up from her popular sketch work on "Saturday Night Live" to something sustained and searching, not to mention pretty funny.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It's certainly not a "breakthrough" comedy, unless the breakthrough is that women will flock to slobby, heartfelt romps starring Kristin Wiig instead of Seth Rogen. It's progress, sort of.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Bridesmaids is the Bride of Frankenstein of contemporary comedies, a movie stitched together crudely, and only semi-successfully, from random chick flick and bromance parts.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    So what is Bridesmaids? A boozy wedding comedy? A touching character story? A paean to friendship? At turns, it's each -- making it a wedding movie with a commitment problem and giving Feig's scattered film a rudderless quality between the laugh lines.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    If this sounds like a typical date movie, worry not. It's very much an Apatow production-though the crasser additions, like his already-notorious food poisoning scene, feel painfully forced.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • David Fear

    Wiig comes out a winner, but nothing is worse than watching a perfect marriage of performer and material get so perversely undermined.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Karina Longworth

    Many of the chaotic set pieces cataloging Annie's self-destruction have a kind of dumb crassness that works against Bridesmaids' often smart, highly class-conscious deconstruction of female friendship and competition.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Denby

    It's essentially a skit idea, not a dramatic idea, and the best the movie does with it is to repeat it. What saves Bridesmaids is Feig's love of performers - in particular, his love of actresses.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Bridesmaids is bipolar filmmaking at its most disconcerting, with changes in tone so abrupt that they can cause whiplash. In part because of this and in part because the writing is often lazy and self-indulgent, the movie rarely works.

  • Joe Leydon

    A sluggish, charmless misfire in which even the most appealing players -- must try too hard to make anything close to an engaging impression.

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