On the 20th of June DCM held a screening for the highly anticipated new film ‘Bridesmaids’. The film, which has been dubbed as the female equivalent to ‘The Hangover’, was attended by a gaggle of excited women eager to enjoy the screening.
Produced by Judd Apatow, (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) Bridesmaids stars Kristen Wiig, cast as the lead Annie, a maid of honour whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colourful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. The film is fast paced, crude and side splittingly funny, with horrifying but laugh out loud moments throughout.
From the exterior, the film looks like a stereotypical chick-flick about the difficulties of being a bridesmaid, but as the film progresses it is clear that this film appeals to both genders, despite the female dominance of the characters and is far from the conventions of a chick flick.
