Annie’s life keeps coming up short. But when she discovers her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor.

As she brings Lillian’s bridesmaids along on an escalating series of disasters, Annie realizes the person who knows her the best has introduced her to four strangers who will shake up her life for good.
Comedy - Despite the title and the mostly female cast, this is not a gentle
romantic comedy but a far more raunchy adult comedy--thus giving it
as much appeal to the young adult male audience as the young adult
female one. This is a major showcase for star/co-writer Kristin

PROFANITY: 27 F-words; 27 S-words; 3 GD's; many others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex with noises and movements. VIOLENCE: Some comic hits and fighting. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and pills. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Constant banter and wisecracks; slapstick; raunchy humor; gross-out gags.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 209 moviegoers:
OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females, rated "Bridesmaids" very high. There were a few somewhat low adult male reviews, but for this type of movie, I would say these are great reviews from the guys. "Bridesmaids" would make a GREAT DATE MOVIE! (Be sure to read the movie type information and the content listing since it is a very sexual movie.)
