I had mixed feelings about watching this,but went for it and though i can see why some would hate it,i did find most of it funny.
It's seen as the best comedy for ages by many,i simply cannot agree. A film about a thirty something woman sleeping with a moron because she's losing self worth,life gets worse,then she gets the job of maid of honour to her best friend. There are a lot of scenes that are bound to get most people laughing so long as very crude humour doesn't offend...and the humour is very crude. I half expected to hate this movie,truth is,i just hated some of the characters. For me,the main character is annoying and hard to sympathize with,i just feel she should've been played by a much funnier actress,someone naturally funny rather than desperate to be seen as funny. A lot of the jokes could be seen as desperate for laughs,but most of them do manage to actually be funny,such as the scenes where the 2 main friends of the bride to be are trying to get one over on each other and the food poisoning results. The cop i found very likable and some of the other charcters came across well if perhaps a little overplayed,but some,such as the f***buddy just had me shaking my head that people like this really do exist,but i suppose that's just the actor doing his job.
All in all,i'm not as impressed as most,but will hold my hand up to laughing quite a lot even if i refuse to see it as brilliant. So 4 stars because i enjoyed it for the most part,but at the moment,i just don't see it as a 5 star film.
