Bridesmaids (2011)

ahem... yes I did go and see Bridesmaids and whilst I did not hate the film, it does have some very bad issues. For a start it is overly long, in fact it is just over 2 hours (which seems to be increasingly popular now with comedies) and regrettably feels like it outstays its welcome. The film also just seems to be a number of comedy sketches conjoined by a flimsy story arc about a wedding plan, this is evident by the number of plot points that garner no resolution or explanation (why is there an Irish cop, or for that matter how is there an Irish cop working in Milwaukee?). For the most part the acting is fine, there are some genuinely funny moments, but on the whole the film left me a little dry.
