Bechdel Test - Bridesmaids

Went to see the fabulously funny Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids last night.

It definitely passed the Bechdel test and was a great portrayal of women's friendships and rivalries. This doesn't necessarily make this a feminist film, but was great to see women being funny and gross and insecure and sexual in a film, in their own right, as opposed to being accessories to the male plotline.

The actors were also quite diverse (not all thin, young and white) and were allowed space to have fully formed characters.

I loved it.
