Bridesmaids - Female Driven Comedy is AWESOME

 I liked Bridesmaids. It was a fun female driven movie with funny situations, interesting dialogue and cake. I love cake.

Kristen Wigg (who also helped pen the script) channels Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett. Rounding out the rest of the cast is Maya Rudolph as the bride and the very talented Melissa McCarthy. (Charlie's Angels, Samantha Who?) McCarthy easily steals the whole show playing the groom's very butch and very man hungry sister Megan.

 She alone is worth watching.

Taking cues from Sex and the City and Desperate Housewives, the film tends to feel like familiar territory. As a Judd Apatow movie, it especially feels like familiar territory: a self destructive anti-hero and the funny domino like situations.

The movie is still a blast and well worth a watch. I love female driven comedies and poo jokes. I also love Wilson Phillips.
