If I wasn't a cop anymore, I would still go out with a gun and shoot people.

Bridesmaids (2011)
Chosen by me as I like to go to the cinema a lot.

A great cast do a lot to makes this a mostly fun, very bad mouthed comedy.
It is a touch too long and the redemptive arc of the main character doesn't really work (what exactly does she do except realise she's an arsehole?) but they are all very funny women and it's generally not far between good gags.
Melissa McCarthy, almost unrecognisable but last seen round the filmaday halls in Nine, is the stand-out but everyone gets their moment (if not exactly full arcs as Ellie Kemper and Wendi McLendon-Covey are basically forgotten about).


  1. So was it the female Hangover? Because that comparison is the reason I'm not going to watch it, despite MM.

  2. yeah it was in many ways i guess. but i liked the first hangover for the most part like i did this.
