Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
When her brother decides to ditch for a couple weeks in London, Viola heads over to his elite boarding school, disguises herself as him, and proceeds to fall for one of her soccer teammates. Little does she realize she's not the only one with romantic troubles, as she, as he, gets in the middle of a series of intermingled love affairs.
Annie (Kristen Wiig), is a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. 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. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she'll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you'll go for someone you love. Written by
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.

When Rhodes first has Annie pulled over doing the DUI test, a car's headlights can be seen coming up behind him, but it never passes them and disappears in the next shot. See more »
Could have been a cute movie, but went over the top with foul, crude and offensive language. The humor is sophomoric and seems like a movie that was written by Beavis and Butthead. The language is over the top foul. The behavior and reactions of characters is not believable, they get stuck in a scene and didn't know when enough is enough. This is not a movie that would appeal to most adults unless they have a very low IQ or the maturity of a 14 year old boy. It had a good premise with possibilities, but they decided to go to the gutter with it. I would not recommend letting children watch this movie and wouldn't really even want my teen to watch it.
