Paul Feig, director of this film is actually one of the people I've always wanted to work with ever since the short lived yet historical "Freaks and Geeks". I'm sure directing this film has secured him a few more films for the future and I couldn't be happier! Because he really is a genuinely nice guy who's also very talented and funny. He seems like the kind of director every actor dreams of working with! Also, he's a genuine nerd like I am. Respect from a nerd to another. We are laughed at but people don't realize that we are cool in the making.
The story is about the maid of honor and a bridesmaid who compete over who's a better friend of the bride. Be sure to count on a major shit storm. Ahh ladies... you're so crazy... and that's why we love you!
It is written by Kristen Wiig, who I think is one of the greatest "Saturday Night Live" cast members of all time. She co-wrote it with Annie Mumolo, who also has a cool cameo. The film got a surprising Oscar nomination for "Best Writing, Original Screenplay" but an even more surprising Oscar nomination went to Melissa McCarthy in the category of "Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role"... while it's surprising in the sense that comedy actresses usually don't get nominated for an Academy Award, it still isn't. She's easily the best thing about the film and brings so such warmth to the character as well. She's incredibly likable.
The cast is quite awesome, There's the lovely Rose Byrne, Maya Rudolph, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ellie Kemper, Matt Lucas, Rebel Wilson, Chris O'Dowd, Jon Hamm and more! Sadly it is also two-time Academy Award nominee Jill Clayburgh's last film. But I'm sure it would make her proud... and a little disgusted at times. Absolutely.
Now, I've already watched the film twice, I enjoyed it so much... many keep complaining it's disgusting, and sure my balls dropped a little when I saw the film but it's absolutely funny. Some complain that it's too much of a "chick flick" but I enjoyed it very much. And I'm a big macho man who only cried to "The Lion King" once. Men can and should be able to enjoy this film as well.
See it, you won't regret it! You'll only regret not being able to whipe away that one or two scenes... Also, please don't make a sequel. That would be the most unnecessary thing since "The Hangover Part II". Please don't let the greed make you produce another sequel that won't be all that funny and has a slight possibility of hurting the first film in the making as well.. It really doesn't deserve that. Don't touch it.
My rating: 8/10
