By now you’ve probably heard — or seen for yourself — that “Bridesmaids” is totally hilarious and Melissa McCarthy, who plays tomboyish and frisky Megan, is clearly the breakout star of the film.

The Kristen Wiig/Maya Rudolph comedy “Bridesmaids” blew the roof off all expectations, raking in $24.4 million at the box office on opening weekend — the most important barometer in all of Hollywood.

Finally, an outrageous gross-out comedy starring women! Hollywood isn’t exactly known for producing flicks that maximize funny females. Even Bette Midler has lamented the lack of funny women gracing the big screen lately.

I can’t wait — like, cannot wait — for “Bridesmaids” to come out. Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jon Hamm (!!!), and food poisoning jokes? Yes, please. Also, three golden retriever puppies appeal to my inner nine-year-old girl. This “dirty version” of the “Bridesmaids” trailer — NSFW on account of salty language and Jon… READ MORE »
A while back, I remember asking myself, “Could Judd Apatow curate a group of women the same way he works magic with his usual guys? Or is his humor purely dude-like?” Well, it appears that he is now taking a stab at a female-focused movie, “Bridesmaids.” At first, I was a bit appalled that the… READ MORE »
Megin and I first met as mid-level slaves to the fashion industry eight years ago. I recognized a kindred spirit the minute I caught her screaming harsh obscenities at her computer.
