BRIDESMAIDS – SUCCESSFUL 2ND WEEKEND
Paul Feig and Kirsten Wiig’s movie earned an estimated $21.1 million for a total of nearly $60 million in two weeks. I’m guessing word of mouth and positive reviews from the critics really helped this movie.
Melissa McCarthy is one of the major breaks outs of this film. Watch Melissa McCarthy opposite her real-life husband Ben Falcone in “Bridesmaids”.
