Our Score
With an incredible ensemble comedy cast, Bridesmaids is a heady hilarious romp through western female tribal-bridal culture. Loser singleton Kristen Wiig is asked by lifelong pal Maya Rudolph to be maid of honour at her upcoming wedding. But their friendship is torn asunder by Rudolph's new friend, icky perfectionist Rose Byrne. So Wiig musters a motley crew of bridesmaids and tries to get her best friend back. The script (co-written by Wiig) and direction (from Paul Feig) makes for one smart, deft film - produced no less by gross-out genius Judd Apatow. The film is spiked with outrageous scenes that show off Wiig's lightning-quick comedy timing, while credit should also go to Chris O'Dowd as her love interest and Melissa McCarthy as the awkward but lovable oddball in the bridal party.

Summary

A disorganised woman is asked to be maid of honour at her best friend's wedding. Taking charge of the prenuptial bridal celebrations, she resolves to give her pal and accompanying bridesmaids the time of their lives, but as her efforts slide into chaos she finds the wife of the groom's boss is keen to usurp her position. Comedy, with Kristen Wiig, Rose Byrne and Melissa McCarthy.
