- Am I Missing Something?
- July 5th, 2011
I've been hearing rave reviews from every source about how good the movie 'Bridesmaids' is. So good in fact that I thought about shelling out too much money to go see it. I am so glad that I didn't, watching it last night... I was extremely disappointed with everything.
The biggest disappointment was that it felt like nothing was finished. Everything was halfway, and scenes I saw in commercials weren't actually there. The characters were whiney, and the only ones I did like were ones that either didn't get enough on screen time, or that we saw once or twice for the sake of their being another character.
I laughed at some points, mainly certain bits of dialogue, but I didn't keep laughing. By the end of it, I had just realized that I had just wasted a couple hours, and I should have ignored it, and just gone to bed early.
All I could see it as 'this is a story about a woman who thinks she has hit rock bottom, but wait until you can see how much further she can fall. But wait! After she keeps falling, you don't get the satisfaction of seeing her climb back up again.'
There were really REALLY awkward moments in the movie, like when she slept with the cop who liked her, and she woke up in the morning after spending the night at his house, to find out that he had gone out and bought a bunch of things from the store, and layed them out for HER to make BREAKFAST FOR HIM (/them). She ran, and I was like 'good!', because I was geniunely like 'what the fuck is this!?', as it would have been entirely different had she felt inspired enough to want to bake again, and make it a treat for him.
I just... the movie irked me... and I'm wondering what amazing miraculous version everyone else is watching, because I got the whining loser 'watch as everyone one-ups me' version, and it sucked.
