‘Bridesmaids’ Vs. ‘SATC’
July 6, 2011 by Post Team
‘Bridesmaids’ Vs. ‘SATC’, Move over, Carrie Bradshaw. There’s a new lady alone in the city. Her name is Annie, and she was a hell of a bridesmaid. The news that the “bridesmaids” passed “Sex and the City” as the highest grossing R-rated comedy women should not be too much of a surprise to those of us who have been following the “bridesmaids” effect, but it is surprising that the film has become the largest Universal rom-com of all time and best of Judd Apatow out of the box office. This is good news for us, though, because that means we can expect a lot of “bridesmaids” in the style of the films in the future, hopefully with the same star power and high-caliber comedy.
In fact, the trend is upon us. At least three chick-driven laughs are in the works, which proves the ladies can be fun without being around the next hottie passing by:
“How to Be Single” We would be happy just to see Drew Barrymore behind the camera again, but her latest film, “How To Be Single,” sounds like the most feminine power. Based on the novel 2008 by Liz Tuccillo (a former writer for “Sex and the City” should be taken into account), the film follows the life of love and breaking of a group of New Yorkers in a span of 10 years. The premise sounds pretty similar to “Sex and the City” but with new faces and Drew at the helm, we feel that it will continue to “Bridesmaids’” steps.
“Goree Girls” If anyone knows anything about romantic comedies, is Jennifer Aniston, but we are happy that she seems to have given the genre a break and transition to full comedies. First time I have “ugly heads” (this week!), but also has a musical called “Goree Girls” to work. The film tells the true story of a group of prisoners who form a country western band, and yes, Jen is going to sing it. Although the film is classified as a drama, we feel that you have a lot of comedic elements in it and all the film does a girl can handle.
Untitled Judd Apatow / Paul Feig Comedy It only makes sense after the success of “bridesmaids” men behind him and producer Judd Apatow and Paul Feig, director team up for a second attempt at the genre of comedy. There is no guarantee that the film is a comedy centered on women this time, but Hollywood has taught us that if something works, someone will try to repeat their success. Now we just need a guarantee that Kristen Wiig is on board, and we’ll be all set.
