TRANSCRIPT (TOMMY ONLY)
Going to see “Bridesmaids was a little uncomfortable at the ticket counter. I mean, two guys buying tickets for this? ‘Ah, two for “Bridesmaids” please? Ha ha!
A movie like this could be full of sight gags, but the film’s director Paul Feig says, “Mostly dialogue based. You’ll enjoy it, I think. Let me know if you do.” Alright!
That movie was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. I mean, going into a thing and it was going to be a chick flick. I was happy. It was a lot of fun. Many, many laughs.
Great job, Melissa McCarthy in BRIDESMAIDS. Here’s my review of the movie. I specifically talk about your performance. Kristen Wiig I thought was terrific as Annie. She really made that part believable. You know, she’s a bit of a victim in this film for a while, but my god she played it perfectly. Wonderful.
Melissa McCarthy played Dougie’s sister Megan. She was a little bit nutty and a little bit strange, but man she really pulled it off.
The soundtrack of this movie really helped a lot too. The transitional shots were terrific. The music that they used was nice. So I really didn’t get bored during the shots. I was listening to the song and it was appropriate.
As it turns out there were a handful of sigh gags in this movie, but no worries. The story still works. Like when Annie and Lillian are having lunch. They’re talking… and then all of the sudden something happens and there are laughs. Wait! What’s funny?! Alright, you sighted people have your fun. Don’t worry. I’ll wait. Ha ha!
So for “Bridesmaids” I’m going three and a half out of four eyes open. Fantastic. The writing was great. The story was great. It works.
