A lot of movies come out every year, yet, to find a funny, well-written and female-driven comedy is a rather rare feat. ‘Bridesmaids’ is the kind of film that proves that what is rare is not impossible. It was not only a big commercial success but was also praised by the critics. The Academy Award Nomination for Best Screenplay attested to the great writing that supported its well-deserved popularity. And while the film was more focused on the rivalry of the characters played by Kristen Wiig and Rose Byrne, who are really good actresses, it was Melissa McCarthy who stole the show. The character of blunt, unfiltered and uncensored Megan fit her like a glove and no wonder she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role.
A single reason is not enough to justify why we like ‘Bridesmaids’. It was a joint effort of the chemistry of the characters, well-acted out scenes that delivered some really funny moments, or simply that even when it was a chick-flick, it was more than that and better. With that said, we have tried to come up with a list of films similar to Bridesmaids that are our recommendations. If you are interested, you might be able to stream some of these best movies like Bridesmaids on Netflix or Amazon Prime or even Hulu.
