“The Contenders 2011”

7:00*

Bridesmaids is hilariously funny, but what makes it exhilarating is how boldly it defies that conventional wisdom about what men and women like. From the opening scene, you realize that it springs from a much different comic sensibility than your average rom-com; it’s broad but still inherently feminine. But its being female isn’t nearly as important as its being genuine. The peculiar alchemy of Bridesmaids is that, in letting women be like men and men be like women, it allows them all to be a little more like people.”
