Bridesmaids proved that women can be just as raunchy as men. I don’t usually watch modern R rated comedies. Mostly because I have a hard time finding the humor in something so vulgar. Eventually I realized that I couldn’t avoid watching the movie, so I did. I was pleasantly surprised by how much it made me laugh. Sometimes I watch a female led comedy and I have a hard time relating to the humor. That’s not the case with Bridesmaids. The jokes are diverse enough for anyone to find it funny. Bridesmaids follows a maid of honor who tries to stay close to her best friend who is getting married. Kristen Wiig should be the lead in more comedies she’s so funny. However, the clear standout performance here is Melissa McCarthy. She steals every scene she’s in and actually managed to get an Oscar nomination (which is extremely rare for a comedy performance). If you’re looking a good comedy of the last decade, look no further than Bridesmaids.
