When it comes to hen parties, there are plenty of ways to celebrate. But, if you’re looking for an end to the evening that is a little more chilled, a wedding-themed movie could be the way to go. There are plenty of great films to choose from but one that we think should always be on the list is Bridesmaids. It’s a hilarious rom-com that’s sure to have you all in stitches!
What’s It About?
Not one for the faint-hearted, the Bridesmaids cast includes comedy geniuses such as Kristen Wiig, Rebel Wilson, Matt Lucas and Melissa McCarthy. The main focus of the story is Annie (Wiig), whose life has hit rock bottom. But it’s turned upside down when she’s asked to be maid of honour at her best friend Lillian’s wedding.
It’s Annie’s job to lead a hilarious combination of characters that make up the rest of the bridal party. There’s sex-obsessed Megan, innocent Becca, blonde bombshell Rita and Helen. Helen is one of Lillian’s newer friends who threatens Annie’s position as Lillian’s best friend.
It’s a film that charts the traditional journey from engagement to marriage. The hen party, buying the bridal and bridesmaids’ dresses and the general planning of the big day. But, with things becoming more and more outrageous at every turn, it’s one best watched with friends and family members who aren’t easily shocked! The film’s sex scene opener sets the tone for the rest of the film. Expect plenty of sexual references, explosive diarrhoea in a wedding dress shop and language that could shock some of the more sensitive viewers.
It’s not all sensationalist scenes. The film includes plenty of soul searching from Annie, who is trying to establish where her life went so wrong. Becca realises that she wants more from her life than a pretty uneventful marriage. Moreover, the competition between Annie and Helen throws up some pretty poignant moments and questions the meaning of friendship.
Why Watch It?
Bridesmaids runs to just over two hours long. It might seem like a huge chunk of a hen night but Bridesmaids is a great hen night film to get you all in the wedding mood.
Perhaps you could watch the Bridesmaids movie the night before the Big Day? Then you could enjoy a mad night out a few weeks before!
