"Something old, something new..." is the way the traditional wedding poem begins. It's also an appropriate way to describe Bridesmaids, the new comedy directed by Paul Feig (previously of I Am David, "Arrested Development", "Nurse Jackie", "The Office", Unaccompanied Minors) and produced by comedy mastermind Judd Apatow. The wild twists and turns leading up to a wedding. A friend rivaling for the attention of the betrothed from the newer, cooler friend in their life. The eccentricities of the wedding party and guests that lead to all kinds of high jinks. The pre-wedding blast that doesn't quite end as planned. All the standards are at work in Bridesmaids, every last, prosaic one of them, but there's something more important at work, too. Driving the comedy, covering the commonplace left character turns that pop up throughout, there's a new car sheen sprayed on by the sharpness of the humor, the honest imperfections »
