When the credits began to roll at the end of Bridesmaids, I was unprecedentedly somber. I had been waiting so long with such ardent anticipation to see this movie—and what a fine, fine movie it was—and it was all over. Never to be seen again. It turns out, I was so overcome by grief, that I had completely forgotten that it wasn’t 1951. Because come this autumn, I will be able to see Bridesmaids again! And not just me, you will too! Because this movie—this fine, fine movie—is available on Blu-Ray™ and DVD starting September 20!
Kristen Wiig’s masterwork of a dramatic comedy, detailing her character Annie’s strained friendship with longtime best friend Lillian (Maya Rudolph) when the latter begins to plan her wedding. Annie is at increasing odds with Helen (Rose Byrne), her rival for Lillian’s camaraderie, and is backed in comedy by a trio of slightly “off-kilter” bridesmaids (just like in the title!), Ellie Kemper, Wendi McClendon-Covey and the scene-stealing Melissa McCarthy.
