Take a gander at the Red Band Trailer for “Bridesmaids”, which is essentially a female version of “The Hangover”, except, as far as I can tell, no one gets lost or stolen and Mike Tyson isn’t invited. Other than that, it’s about a bunch of chicks who get together when one of them is about to get married and hang out in Vegas where rowdy and sex things happen to them. Oh, fun times, fun times.
This spring, producer Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad) and director Paul Feig (creator of Freaks and Geeks) invite you to experience Bridesmaids. Kristen Wiig leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. Annie’s life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she’ll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love.
Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Ellie Kemper, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, Matt Lucas, Jill Clayburgh, Rebel Wilson, Michael Hitchcock, and directed by Paul Feig, who has directed episodes of “The Office” and “Mad Men”.
