“A marriage of genuine characters, gross out gags, and pathos, Bridesmaids is a female-driven comedy that refuses to be boxed in as Kristen Wiig emerges as a real star.”
Metacritic gave the movie a score of 75 out of 100 which is based on reviews from 39 critics, and stated that –“generally favorable reviews”.
Roger Ebert gave the film 3.5 stars of out 4, and said that
Bridesmaids “seems to be a more or less deliberate attempt to cross the Chick Flick with the Raunch Comedy. It definitely proves that women are the equal of men in vulgarity, sexual frankness, lust, vulnerability, overdrinking and insecurity … Love him or not, Judd Apatow is consistently involved with movies that connect with audiences.”
Critic Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly pointed out the significance of Bridesmaids‘ success as follows: “So far, the message that Hollywood seems to have taken from the incredible success of Bridesmaids is a predictably reductive one, something along the lines of: Hey, look! Raunchy comedies for women with awesome grossout scenes in the middle of them can be big box office too!! The message that Hollywood should be taking is: A comedy that’s raunchy and fearless, and also brilliantly written and shrewdly honest about what’s really going on in women’s lives, may actually connect with the fabled non-teenage audience (remember them?).”
