Ladies, older definitely means wiser, but that doesn't just apply to your intellectual prowess—it applies to your taste in potential partners, too.
This is God's perfect movie. (OK, maybe it's Kristen Wiig and Judd Apatow's perfect movie, but whatever.) Amelia and I laughed from the opening credits to the closing credits, when she turned to me and said, "I would watch that all over again right now!" And we both would have. You could see “Bridesmaids” on date night, you could see it on girls' night, or you could see it with your parents (if an extended, gross-out scene about food poisoning and diarrhea is something you can stomach next to your parents).
