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 due to her performance in Get Him to the Greek (2010). However, everyone on Bridesmaids (2011) was genuinely surprised at Byrne'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.

Goofs

The Wilson Phillips CD Lillian gets as a present is a greatest hits compilation featuring the song "Hold On", rather than the original album this song appears on. It isn't the wrong CD, just a different one. See more »

Alternate Versions

The 131-minute unrated version contains several additional scenes as follows:
  • The conversation between Annie (Kristen Wiig) and Mother (Jill Clayburgh) is slightly longer with Mother telling her about Father's "chicken coop" sex act, and it also reveals that Annie's father grew up in a farm.
  • Becca (Ellie Kemper) mocks Annie for being single and offers to arrange a date for her.
  • The car ride with Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and Annie after the bridal store fiasco is longer and different than the theatrical version. In the new cut, after Lilian admits crapping her wedding dress, Annie starts to feel uncomfortable, gets out of the car and throws up.
  • When Annie is at the bathroom, Gil (Matt Lucas) and his sister were in the bathtub together. He asks Annie to hand her the disposable shaver and shaves his sister's armpits.
  • There's a new 5-minute scene where Annie has a date with a guy called Pete. While waiting at the living room for Pete to get ready, she has a very uncomfortable conversation with his son Taylor (he's talking about "fear of dying", asking about Annie replacing his mother, etc..). After Annie goes upstairs, she overhears Pete talking on the phone telling his wife how he missed her and describes Annie as unattractive. Shocked by that, she went back downstairs and saw Taylor taking some contraceptive pills before leaving the house hastily.
  • The home video of Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and Jon (Ben Falcone) is slightly longer. She sticks a slice of ham on his chest and eats them. However, Jon's reaction doesn't tell whether he likes it or not.

Can't believe this is what comedy has come down to
20 June 2011 | by wheredoestheskyendSee all my reviews

Okay, i just registered right now so that i could write a review on this movie. It was suggested by two ex-friends, who i will now call acquaintances because they let me waste my money. That is not what friends do! That being said, this movie definitely has a few laughs here and there, but i probably forced myself to laugh because i went into the theater thinking it's a comedy. I feel as if the whole movie was forced into comedy, although i think it would have been a great movie had they made it more into a drama. I think the blond girl (dont know name) definitely did act well, i was sad for her when she was going through the stuff and i would have loved to see her get her life back together.

I definitely think the humor they used has been done to death, like food poisoning, going in the bathroom in your pants etc etc. It is worth a watch, ONCE. Only if you pay less then $3 for it, but definitely not worth watching at the movies.

I give it a two star (can't see the start for me to submit??)
