The Bridesmaids Trailer Unveils Apatow's First Female-Oriented Movie

Although Judd Apatow ‘buddy films’ are known for their predominantly male-focused casting and plot lines, the recently released The Bridesmaids trailer shows that the male monopoly on this kind of comedy is quickly coming to an end.

Over the past decade, Jud Apatow movies have gone on to become some of the most successful comedies around, and have frequently featured a familiar band of now-famous actors. The Bridesmaids trailer, however, stars Kiirsten Wiig and an almost entirely-female cast of top-knotch comediennes. Despite the fact that the cast is largely absent of male actors and revolves around a wedding shower and bachelorette party, from the looks of the trailer, the Apatow-produced film should have no trouble entertaining viewers of any gender.
