Director Paul Feig and producer Judd Apatow, the guys behind comedies such as Knocked Up, Superbad and TV’s Freaks and Geeks, bring us this sure to be hilarious movie starring Kristen Wiig as Annie, who is asked to take on the maid of honor role and all the duties that come along with it for her best friend Lillian’s, played by Maya Rudolph, wedding. Throw in a group of wild and crazy bridesmaids played by Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper, and we have a definite hit!
The movie centers on Annie (Kristen Wiig), a simple and single 30-something Midwestern girl (with poor dating track record) who is asked to be her best friend Lillian’s (Maya Rudolph) maid of honor. However, having never done the job, she struggles to please the snobby, rich bridesmaids at every pre-wedding event. And one of Lillian’s best friends is essentially the bridesmaid from hell (Rose Byrne) — who attempts to take over the maid of honor duties from the inexperienced Annie.
Bridesmaids hits theaters on May 13, during peek bridal season, GENIUS! Check out the movie trailer below.
