I'm not the target audience for Bridesmaids -- 'just caught it on cable.
Okay, I'm late to the party but I def understand the s here --
Let's start with some facts: I'm not supposed to like Bridesmaids.
I'm totally never ever going to another wedding --
'will never dress right for it.
The only wedding I did go to, I rocked a blazer over a T-shirt and my Nike sneakers.
My cousin John still talks about me in whispered tones.
Fuck him he's happily divorced, super sad I called it.
Back to the ladies, it was hard to miss all the "Women Rule the Box Office" headlines -- calling it a real box-office success story -- because nobody was looking for a chick flick without the gals from "Sex in the City" to do anything. Crammed with that Judd Apatow -- injecting a whole lot of heart into a raunchy atmosphere --
how could you go wrong?
I sat perched, sipping in the over three sittings, don't judge me.
I record movies on DVR and well, my attention span isn't all that great.
That's what the pause button is for, right?
Much of the credit goes to Kristen Wiig (who also co-wrote the sript) underplaying the comedy potential,
instead going for honest storytelling.
Much of it felt incredibly authentic --
grounded in people and their friends, struggling to be better people.
I enjoyed the Wiig character and identified with her stuggles to find her place in the world.
And hey I'm a sucker for romance.
I saw parts of myself in her characters journey of ultimately embracing the fact that failure is the starting point to getting it right.
That's the kinda story I wanna tell. 'Calls to Apatow not yet returned.
