Trailer For Judd Apatow-Produced BRIDESMAIDS Debuts!

Published at: Feb. 1, 2011, 6:25 p.m. CST

Beaks here...

If BRIDESMAIDS is anywhere near as funny as this brand new trailer (exclusive to Apple, so no embeds!), I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up doing WEDDING CRASHERS business. We're long overdue for a female take on the ol' out-of-control bachelor party formula, and you're not going to find a more formidable collection of comedic talent than this group.

Kristen Wiig stars as a single woman who finds herself in over her head when asked to be Maid of Honor at her best friend's wedding. Not a stunningly complex or original premise, but it looks like Wiig (who wrote the screenplay with Annie Mumolo), producer Judd Apatow, and director Paul Feig have put together something special. The impressive ensemble cast includes Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Ellie Kemper (so good on THE OFFICE), Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Matt Lucas, Jon Hamm and the late, great Jill Clayburgh in her final role.

BRIDESMAIDS hits theaters on May 13th, and is now my most eagerly anticipated release for that month not titled THE TREE OF LIFE.

    Kristen Wiig is a super-sexy comedy goddess of sexual sexiness.

    by WriteForTheEdit

    She drives me crazy. Maya's up there, too, on my smoking hot funny chick scale.

    SNL Sketch: The Movie - Part 18

    by Heckles

    Looks like somewhere between 'MacGruber' and 'A Night at the Roxbury' and my taint. And Wiig is about as sexy as an athletic grandmother.

    now women have an option other than that sex and the city bullshit

    by stu_pickles

    maybe hollywood will realize you can make a movie that will attract a women audience and is also entertaining

  • Feb. 1, 2011, 7:04 p.m. CST

    I hope you're right, stepdaddy.

    by THE_CHOPPAH

    I'm pulling (for) it.

    Looks decent enough

    by Detective_Fingerling

    probably much better than those horrible romantic comedies girlfriends try to drag us to every few months.

    Prick!

    If I have a girlfriend by then I will go see this.

    by _Venkman

    If not I'll stay home alone, download it and masturbate after (during?).

    My ISP must have blocked the funny version

    by Bill

    and Kristen Wiig is an inverted turtle on the sexy scale.

    shame about Melissa McCarthy

    by TheSeeker7

    That she can't lose even SOME of the weight, but she's got a really beautiful face. And I mean this is coming from a guy even who appreciates an especially curvy girl more than surely the average male, but not THAT much. And that new fat couple show she's in, jesus, she looks like she put on even MORE weight in the time since Gilmore Girls! and for the record I don't find myself attracted to Kristen Wiig in the slightest. I think she's talented and funny, but actually kinda ugly.

    Wow, this looks terrible

    by fastcars

    Way to waste a great cast. I feel sorry for anyone who buys tickets for this piffle. But congratulations, ladies! You've proven you can fall down and burp. You've come a long way, baby.

    That about sums it up.

    oh, Jon Hamm.... why... why??

    by TheSeeker7

    So far in the wake of him really starting to get the success and wide acclaim from Mad Men, Hamm has been mostly pretty good in the other projects he's chosen to be a part of. Now... this? He's playing the token in a bad, "edgy" (I'm sure this word will be prominently featured in the marketing materials) all-chick comedy? Actually, funny thing, now I think about it... long before he was on 1960's Madison Ave, he played the one male detective in an otherwise all female (pretty much) police precinct on the Lifetime series "THE DIVISION". I worked on that show as a PA for a couple of weeks, Hamm was cool as a cucumber, super down to earth guy.

    Mr Beaks.. Where is my prize??!

    by MrBungel22

    Mr Beaks, I am still awaiting the prize that I won from The Bloom County Song Title Contest in November. You have not responded to any of the countless emails that I have sent you. I am beginning to lose faith in your (and the site's) integrity. Please let me know what the situation is! Thanks.
