Finally, a funny movie where women make all the good jokes. Grab your girlfriends and go see Bridesmaids, starring SNL’s Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and a cast of many more ladies who make us laugh.
The Seattle Times calls Bridesmaids “a female-centered ensemble comedy that’s ultimately about the importance and power of friendship. And, yes, it’s funny as hell.”
Jumping The Broom
Staying on the wedding theme, Jumping the Broom, starring Angela Bassett, was recently released about an engaged couple who come from different backgrounds and struggle to make their families mesh.
Michael Phillips from the Chicago Tribune gives Jumping the Broom 3 stars and calls it “a picture that gave me considerable satisfaction, partly because it wears its themes of trust and belief and faith lightly and easily, while taking them seriously.”
To top off your wedding movie marathon go see the guilty pleasure Something Borrowed. Based on the best-selling novel by Emily Griffin, it stars Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin as two engaged gal pals going after the same guy. Bruce Miller of the Sioux City Journal is impressed with Hudson’s performance in Something Borrowed and calls her “a one-of-a-kind treasure, an improved version of her mom, Goldie Hawn.”
