EAT THE UGLY CARROT

Bridesmaids (2011)

Kristen Wigg stars as Annie Walker, a single woman in her 30s who has recently lost her job, savings and boyfriend when her bakery failed to take off. Her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), announces her engagement and makes Annie her maid of honour. Though broke and lovelorn, Annie tries to make it a wonderful occasion for Lillian and things get tougher when she has to fend off Lillian’s new BFF, Helen, who’s vying for the role of maid of honour.

This is one of the funniest movies I have seen this year! Almost every moment is a laugh-out-loud moment. Personally, I thought the funniest parts were during the bridesmaids’ dress fitting, the airplane scene and when Annie was trying to get Officer Nathan Rhodes’s (the charming Chris O’Dowd) attention by driving “recklessly”. Totally ship Nathan and Annie… and the raccoons are adorable!

The rivalry between Helen (Rose Byrne) and Annie was evident from the start when they toasted Lillian. The staring thing was weird and I hated how Helen hypocritical can be. The bridal shower was the last straw and I can empathize with Annie, though her actions were a little too strong (but funny). I mean, when one is really angry, the f-bombs will definitely come out. Come on, she’s literally at the lowest point of her life and it gets worst? Give her a guy with a packet of carrots!

There’s also Jon Hamm, who plays a jerk version of himself and Wigg is really lucky to have him in it even though he can be such an ass. Melissa McCarthy (Sookie from Gilmore Girls) plays Megan, who doesn’t mince her words and actions. She brings out most of the gags and steals every scene – OMG that toilet sink! Ellie Kemper from The Office also stars as one of the bridesmaids. And surprise surprise, she used to be Jon Hamm’s student when he was teaching drama!

Annie: What kind of a name is ‘Stove’ anyway? What, are you like a kitchen appliance or something? 
Flight Attendant Steve: No. My name is Steve and I’m a man. 
Annie: You are a flight attendant.

I can’t believe it’s Steve Carell’s last episode! Sandboxes in my eyes! Especially when he took off the microphone that was hidden in his jacket. OMG.

Michael Scott: We have been thinking about where Packer should sit, and we can’t just sit around waiting for Creed to die.

Jim Halpert: You know you can’t actually poison him right?
Dwight Schrute: It isn’t poison. It’s a laxative. People take laxatives all the time. This is just a lot more of a laxative.

Dwight Schrute: Who is Justice Beaver?
Jim Halpert: … It’s a crime fighting beaver.

Andy Bernard: Am I angry that Gabe stole my girlfriend during the summer? No, I’ve been through anger management. Okay, so right now, I’m sitting on a nice beach, at Cape Cod, gazing out across the white caps. Oh look, it’s a humpback whale… how pretty. (pauses) It’s eating Gabe.
