'Bridesmaids' -- In Which I Admonish Folks to Go See This Comedy
CliqueClack TV, for which I blog, has launched a new brand, CliqueClack Flicks, featuring commentary about . . . movies.
My first contribution to this new effort was a post in which I make the case that if you’re among those who lament the fact that only 30 percent of speaking roles in movies go to women and that a paltry percentage of films are written by women, then you have no excuse to take a pass on Bridesmaids.
Why should you see it?
1) It’s funny. (I laughed out loud, something I rarely do.)
2) It has Melissa McCarthy (whom I loved as Sookie in the Gilmore Girls).
3) It has heart.
4) It’s smart.
5) Jon Hamm has a small role in it.
So what are you waiting for?
