The Gals of Bridesmaids Strike a Pose

I’ll be perfectly honest with you — there are only two reasons why I’m posting this — Kristen Wiig and Rose Byrne. I have a mad (and some might say, unhealthy) crush on Ms. Rose Byrne, and Kristen Wiig is one funny and gosh darn cute gal who I am quickly warming to. Plus, check out the poster for their new comedy “Bridesmaid” (which Wiig co-wrote the screenplay for). Looking at this poster, I expect the ladies to pull out gats and start busting caps in fools’ asses at any moment. That probably won’t happen in the movie, of course, but a guy can dream, can’t he?

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.
