Bridesmaids – Apatow’s next big thing – arrives in UK cinemas 24th June

The film that has everyone talking across the pond – Bridesmaids arrives in UK cinemas on the 24th June. Judd Apatow – the man who brought us The 40 Year Old Virgin, Anchorman and Superbad – treads different ground for his latest comedy. The one thing each of the these three films have in common – aside from being very funny – is that they are films about guys that play to the male sense of humour. This time Bridesmaids gives the girls a bit of Apatow magic.

Roger Ebert loved the film. He said of Apatow: “Love him or not, he’s consistently involved with movies that connect with audiences, and “Bridesmaids” seems to be a more or less deliberate attempt to cross the Chick Flick with the Raunch Comedy. It definitively proves that women are the equal of men in vulgarity, sexual frankness, lust, vulnerability, overdrinking and insecurity.”

Mary Eluzabeth Williams concurred, saying: “It’s a movie that succeeds, often beautifully, not by forcing its characters to be as naughty and gross and pathetic as men are. It soars by letting them be as naughty and gross and pathetic as women are. Three cheers for equality.”

    Great to hear! I really enjoyed the film. I’m curious to see how well it’s received by male audiences. It definitely seemed like it was more geared towards females than males. But, then again – I did enjoy The Hangover as well! 🙂

    Although I’m not into Apatow’s films and I don’t get the lead actress 🙂 I do adore Melissa McCarthy and I’m extremely happy that her career is picking up on pace after this film.
