The Disappointingly Generic ‘Bridesmaids’ Trailer

Wacky crew of individuals who would never be friends in real life? Check. Sequence of main actor taking a drug and being crazy? Check. Stock wedding plot set up? Double and triple check. Bridesmaids has got it all.

While the presence of Judd Apatow as producer and Paul Feig (the creator of Freaks and Geeks) as director might inspire some confidence, this trailer doesn’t. It’s a strong cast, sure, but everything here looks about as middle of the road as possible.

Check it out for yourself:

Please don’t be the movie this claims you are, Bridesmaids. The success of The Hangover really had an effect on marketers…

There are some good lines and set ups there, but the rest is shooting for par. Hopefully the cast is proof that this movie can stand out and actually be funny.

And, wow, Melissa McCarthy? I haven’t seen her since The Nines. Awesome.

What say you, internet?
