Many people know this flick as the female response to The Hangover. While the film doesn't center around a group of women who, upon losing their memories, are later forced to retrace their steps through the chaotic wake of the previous night to find a member of their party, it does however involve some amusing cat fights and crazy happenings that could make even the most stoic person laugh their face off. Bridesmaids basically tells a story of jealousy when Annie Walker, a girl whose life has taken a turn for the worst, is asked to be the maid-of-honor to her lifelong friend Lillian Donovan. So what's the problem? The problem is Helen Harris III, one of the bridesmaids who, while just a bridesmaid, is a rich bridesmaid. On top of that, Helen is also regarded as "the friend after Annie," who has become a huge part of Lillian¿s "new" life. And as the film unfolds, it becomes quite obvious to Annie that Helen is definitely the runner up to her much-needed position as maid of honor, forcing Annie to become territorial. And you know what happens when women get territorial... fun stuff happens. From that point on, the movie depicts how both Annie and Helen try to outsmart the other to win Lillian's affection, a dispute which ends up sabotaging the events leading up to Lillian's marriage and the wedding itself. The most memorable scene in the film, to my mind, concerns food poisoning that ends with each character relieving themselves in the craziest of places including a sink and a manhole.
