Annie's life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian's maid of honor.

Trivia

Rose Byrne was better known for being a dramatic actress in projects like Sunshine (2007) and Damages (2007) when she was cast as Helen. This was mainly down to her performance in Get Him to the Greek (2010). However, everyone on Bridesmaids (2011) was genuinely surprised at Bryne's ability to do improv comedy during the shoot, best exemplified in the scene at the engagement party where she tries to usurp Annie's tribute speech.

Quotes

Annie: I'm sorry I didn't mean to waste your time... that's so embarrassing. Thank you.
Officer Nathan Rhodes: No, you are welcome.
[in a sarcastic tone]
Officer Nathan Rhodes: This is kind of high octane stuff that really made me want to become a cop. Missing girl found at her apartment... it's adrenaline pinching.
[awkward exchange of words]
Officer Nathan Rhodes: Anyway, go and save your friend from her apartment. Bye bye.

I am a guy, and I liked this movie
18 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the previews for this movie and thought to myself, wow this seems like the female version of the HangOver. While it was not along the same plot as the HangOver, it was about the moments leading up to the wedding. At first I looked around the theater and noticed it was 95% women and I started to feel like I had made a mistake. But by the end I was pleasantly surprised that there was a lot good humor involved. Some of it would be considered guy humor, but actually had all the women in the theater laughing their asses off. There is a bit chick flick element to it between the main character and a guy, but it is such a small part of the movie that I would say it's about 85% comedy and 15% romance/chick flick. So as a guy, I can honestly say I enjoyed the movie. Most of these types of movies are about guys making complete asses out of themselves and you almost never see the same from women. Hollywood always likes to make women seem perfect, but you see women making crude remarks about their own genitals and it's nice to see that women can be funny in this regard as well. I think this was a great movie for female humor, because I have long thought that comedy was dominated by male actors and I am just waiting for some women to jump in there and start paving the way. Good job on this movie!
