Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this hilarious yet affecting R-rated comedy shows how two friends, Annie (Kristen Wiig) and Lillian (Maya Rudolph), cope when their lives are upended by Lillian's impending wedding. Produced by Judd Apatow, Bridesmaids has all the hallmarks of an Apatow vehicle, including risque humor (there's no nudity, but expect plenty of sex talk and a couple scenes with moaning and groaning), over-the-top scatological comedy (the consequences of some unintentional food poisoning are beyond raunchy), zany adventures, crude language (including "f--k" and "c--t"), immature behavior (some of which is fueled by drinking) ... and surprising insight into friendships and adult relationships. It's not age appropriate for tweens and young teens, but it's definitely worth viewing for older moviegoers interested in a fresh spin on the "chick flick" formula.

Sexual Content

The movie opens with an energetic, often loud sex scene; no sensitive body parts are shown, but nudity is implied (you can see down the whole side of the man's body at one point), and the woman is wearing a bra and underwear. Lots of moaning and groaning. A man squeezes a woman's breast through her bra and talks about having "f--k buddies." A couple is shown making out and trying to rip each other's clothes off; later, she wakes up in bed covered by a sheet (nudity is implied). Another character propositions strangers, sometimes crudely. A woman takes off her top to get a man's attention (shoulders shown, but not breasts). Plenty of sexual innuendo/talk; a woman does an impression of a penis.


A woman goes berserk at a bridal shower and attacks the decorations and the cake and upends tables. A medicated airplane passenger causes a commotion that drives a federal marshal to action. Some discussion about where to stash a gun.


Strong, frequent language includes "f--k" (and many permutations of it), "s--t," "d--k," "c--k," "c--t," "ass," "a--hole," "goddamn," "damn," "oh my God," "hell," and more.

Social Behavior

The road to the movie's "lesson" is hilarious and often raunchy, but the message is earnest: Good friendships don't come often, so cherish them. And also this: Your life is what you make of it. So if you're down, get on your feet.


Some glimpses of labels, but the bigger issue here is the commercialization of weddings and the "bigger is better" ethos that has pervaded the whole engagement-to-nuptials journey.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of champagne- and wine-swilling at events, sometimes to excess. A woman gives a friend prescription drugs to calm her nerves during a flight, which she combines with hard alcohol -- to detrimental effect.
