Bridesmaids Trailer Articulates The Weirdness Of Weddings


While it would be spectacular to see an ensemble comedy — featuring women — that is not about brides or babies, it seems like Bridesmaids, starring Kristen Wiig, has potential.

The trailer is not chock-full of laughs, but it’s cool that Kristen’s character is single, and has to deal with a bunch of weird ladies she obviously has little in common with — the bridesmaids. Usually, movies tend to portray women as fast friends and clumps of clones — same hair, clothes, personality. It’s obvious that each of these bridesmaids is wackadoodle in her own special way. Still: It sucks that Maya Rudolph’s bride doesn’t have any black (or Asian or Latina) bridesmaids. On the upside? Jon Hamm in bed! In a word: Unf.
