I went to see Bridesmaids last night with a female friend. After I'd got over the shock of paying £8.50 for a ticket (haven't been to mainstream cinema for a while, obviously!) I was pleased to get in to the auditorium as it wasn't too busy.
I'd heard the film be compared to The Hangover. But I haven't seen The Hangover so that wasn't much use to me. But from the trailers of Bridesmaids I knew it would be a little bit shocking and probably very funny.
I had a great time. I'm usually a bit of a fidget, but I really enjoyed the film, laughed out loud more than a few times and nearly vomited at the toilet scene. But I also felt heartwarmed by the cute little love story that runs through the film. The main character is very easy to identify with, for me as a once single woman, which I think made the film quite realistic even though some of the story line is a little far fetched.
Chris O'Dowd (Guy from the IT crowd) plays an absolutely adorable character and I developed a strange crush on him in his police uniform!
Bridesmaids is still showing in most cinemas - see the Brighton Listings here.
Let me know if you've seen it, and what did you think?
