“Bridesmaids” is the latest film from producer Judd Apatow (“Funny People” and Knocked Up”), a raunchy R-rated comedy with a cast of phenomenal female comics. Kristen Wigg (also on writing duties) plays Annie, a lovelorn individual tasked with heading up a crew of bridesmaids for her best friend’s wedding. If it sounds a little conventional than don’t fret, Wiig’s unique but uproarious comedic chops are sure to provide the picture with a hefty dose of originality, and more importantly the audience with laughs.
“Bridesmaids” also features Maya Rudolph (“MacGruber”) and Rose Byrne (“X-men: First Class”), and is directed by longtime Apatow associate Paul Feig (TV’s long cancelled but universally cherished “Freaks and Geeks”). By bringing voices of this talent to the production, Apatow has more than likely carved out another gem with “Bridesmaids”, the film having performed solidly at the US box-office, and proven very popular with most critics. Make sure you RSVP “attending” when it opens in cinemas nationwide on the 22nd of June 2011.
