Trivia

Judd Apatow pushed hard for wild, physical comedy while Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig preferred to go for subtler comedy. The film's most notorious sequence - the diarrhea scene - was largely at the insistence of Apatow and director Paul Feig. See more »

Goofs

When Officer Rhodes is talking to Annie and Helen on the side of the road in the shot looking into the car (from Rhodes' POV) his hand is on the frame of the car. But from Annie's perspective (looking at Rhodes) his hands are by his side. This happens numerous times throughout the scene. See more »

Judd Apatow meets Wedding Crashers meets The Hangover, with females!
27 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is hilarious fun. My wife drags me to one chick flick a year in the theater, and I'm glad it's this one. Considering the talent involved, I expected something more than meets the eye after seeing the trailer. However, I was not expecting such a hysterical experience. This is a chick flick for dudes... the anti-chick flick "chick flick" if you will.

What I loved about this movie is that although you get a sense of the heart and charm, it's not afraid to pull any punches just because the characters are female (the scene in the bridal shop will be the topic of much discussion, I assure you). I also loved the cast, lead by the always awesome Kristen Wiig. She was perfect in this role and I hope she does more work like this. She can make me pee my pants with laughter, and then straighten me right back up in a matter of seconds.

I also loved the pacing of most of the film. Several scenes had just the right amount of awkwardness or pause or "beat" that really added an extra element of hilarity. There were several of those scenes where the audience was collectively cracking up, almost violently so. People were wiping tears from their eyes and still relaying jokes back and forth to one another as they filed out of the theater.

Anyway, guys, trust me.. make this the "chick flick" you surprise your girl with and take her to the theater. You won't regret it.
