We’ve already run through the gamut of emotions with Bridesmaids, and the movie isn’t even out yet. First, we thrilled to the idea of a female-dominated comedy populated by Groundlings alums, Jon Hamm, and Chris O’Dowd, and we only got more excited when we saw that excellent first poster. Then, the teaser trailer came out … and the movie suddenly looked a little run-of-the-mill. And hey, quirky movies often get flattened out by trailers, but still, our faith was shaken. Luckily, Bridesmaids is back on an upswing: The movie was riotously received at South by Southwest this week, and now, the second trailer plays much better and includes a sense of humor that’s appreciably out-there. Yes, it’s also got some of the things we’re wary of in other movies (most notably Something Borrowed), including female rivalry, single women ashamed of their status, and a pivotal wedding, but in the end, we think we’re over our quick bout of cold feet.
