i'm gonna puke
I have to hand it to this all-star female cast for pulling off an equal-parts funny and dramatic performance that manages to stay completely original for the entire length of the film. There were moments that I laughed out loud, which is rare for me unless the material flows with my type of humor. Kristen Wiig is in top form here, showing both sides of her acting ability. See this if you want a good laugh.
What starts as a female gross-out comedy populated by caricatures turns into a sweetly felt, thoughtful story about friendship and growing up.
"I'm not gonna say I survived. I say I thrived. I met a dolphin down there. And I swear to God, that dolphin looked not at me, but into my soul. Into my Goddamn soul, Annie. And said; I'm saving you Megan. Not with his mouth, but he said it, I'm assuming telepathically."
i feel like the 21st century has birthed far too few good solid comedies, and while it's not perfect and i can't quite put my finger why it doesn't achieve greatness, upon re-watching it i found myself liking it more and more. kirsten wiig, rose byron and mellisa mccarthy are gems, and some scenes are top-notch while others don't quite jive for me. jon hamm laughing during sex tho. every time it gets me.
It made me feel like I had cockroaches under my skin like that guy in Creepshow (1982). An extremely uncomfortable experience. Gross and obnoxious.
i just loved kristen wiig in all of her movies, especially this one (since she's the main character). she makes this movie so entertaining and makes us pity her at the same time.
Wiig and Rudolph...funny as they can be. I like every minute of their performances. The acting does it for me :)
