“Jerry Lewis once said that he didn’t think women were funny, so I’d just like to say, with all respect, ‘F*ck you!’”

– Judd Apatow accepted the Critics’ Choice Aware for Best Comedy film on behalf of “Bridesmaids” and gave comedian Jerry Lewis a long-overdue middle finger for a sexist comment made in 1998. While speaking to an audience at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, Lewis said ”I don’t like any women comedians” and “A woman doing comedy doesn’t offend me but sets me back a bit. I, as a viewer, have trouble with it. I think of her as a producing machine that brings babies in the world.” (Not surprisingly, Jerry Lewis is the same guy who said he wanted to “smack [Lindsay Lohan] in the mouth” and “give her a spanking.” What a charmer.) Be quiet and listen to Judd Apatow, Jerry. [Huffington Post]

If Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy (and Chris O’Dowd and Jon Hamm, yum) were to star in “Bridesmaids 2,” I would buy tickets tomorrow even if the movie hadn’t started filming yet. But Kim Masters from The Hollywood Reporter writes that even though Universal is planning a sequel to 2011′s blockbuster comedy, Wiig has confirmed she is is not involved. ”We aren’t working on that,” she said, referring to co-writer Annie Mumolo. ”Annie and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else.” What the eff? Keep reading »

I am loving the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring the cast of “Bridesmaids” in tuxedos. The six funny gals were named “Entertainers of the Year” by the magazine and I can’t help but agree. Based purely on the number of times the movie made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants, “Bridesmaids” gets my vote for most entertaining film of the year.

“For a lot of comics, there’s a persona they’re not comfortable revealing unless they’re performing. Kristen is incredibly shy; she has her hoodie pulled up and her sleeves pulled over her hands. But this is a woman who wore coconuts on her tits on SNL; she can go to the craziest, most grotesque places on the planet in character.”

– Normally I would roll my eyes at the random absurdity of a magazine like GQ naming Kristin Wiig their “Bro of the Year” alongside a photograph of the comedian in lingerie, but Jon Hamm wrote the magazine’s dedication and I am on Team Hamm Can Do No Wrong. Mind you, I’m not entirely sure what a “Bro of the Year” is, but it seems Wiig is being honored by the mag for “Bridesmaids,” a movie which — shocker! — many men found equally as funny as women. Which is awesome considering the whole “men are funnier than women” thing was getting rather tiresome. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “Being A Bridesmaid Is Breaking My Budget!”

A friend of mine from high school asked me in December to be one of her bridesmaids in her July wedding. I was surprised she asked me, particularly because while we were close in our teens, she was usually too busy with her now-fiance´ to catch up or respond to me when I was visiting our hometown. We talk occasionally and I know she does not have many female friends and considering how close we once were, I said yes. Keep reading »

Was there ever any doubt that Melissa McCarthy goes there and then goes 100 paces farther? Add the “Bridesmaids” sex tape as another piece evidence in the case for her complete fearlessness in the pursuit of being funny. The  ”sex tape” between her character Megan and Air Marshall Jon is all kinds of wrong. Like, Cheez-Whiz-and-a-taser wrong. Melissa, you are my hero. [Funny Or Die]
