Wedding Movies

“Something Borrowed” with Kate Hudson is a romantic comedy. Cute and funny, but a little frustrating at times. It also stars John Krasinski of 2009’s “Away We Go.” The other two actors, Ginnifer Goodwin (the main character, Rachel) and Colin Egglesfield (the groom) I know nothing about. Hudson, as Darcy the bride-to-be, plays a very plausible obnoxious, look-at-me best friend to Goodwin’s quiet, go-ahead-and-walk-all-over-me-please Rachel.

 Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

In contrast, “Bridesmaids” is knock-down hilarious. Despite the abundance of cussing, we laughed so hard we cried in several places. The casting was superb! The script, written by Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, was fantastic! Wiig, of SNL, also plays the main character, Annie, who has been BBF with the bride-to-be, Lillian, played by Maya Rudolph. The groom’s sister, Megan, is played to riotous perfection by Melissa McCarthy. You have got to go see this one! I would recommend it to my parents, except for the language and sex. 🙂  I’m ready to go see it again!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.
