10 Hilarious Movies Like Wedding Crashers That Will Keep You Laughing

Director Paul Feig co-created the beloved cult TV series “Freaks and Geeks” with Judd Apatow in 1999 and brought that firsthand experience of Apatow’s comedy lineage to his 2011 raunchy female-led comedy “Bridesmaids.” 

Co-written by and starring Kristen Wiig, the film features an ensemble cast of Maya Rudolph, Ellie Kemper, Rose Byrne, and Melissa McCarthy in a star-making turn as the brash, confident Megan. The film follows perpetually-single and barely holding it together Annie (Wiig), who is the best friend of the more responsible Lillian (Rudolph). However, much to the chagrin of Annie, Lillian is getting married and wants Annie to be her maid of honor. Annie struggles to handle her bridesmaids duties amidst her growing feelings of alienation from Lillian and the other bridesmaids and her rivalry with Helen (Byrne), Lillian’s sophisticated and upper class friend, who’s all too eager to step in to save the day.

The similarities between “Bridesmaids” and “Wedding Crashers” are pretty obvious: Both films feature a wedding setting, friendships being tested, and an ultimate vindication of the sanctity of marriage and romance. Beyond that, there’s also the crass humor (such as the literally gut-busting and hilarious diarrhea scene), long improvisational takes, and charismatic leads and supporting players, which connect the films.

However, having a female perspective provides an interesting contrast to “Wedding Crashers.” “Bridesmaids” focuses on the toxic ways that expectations put upon women — both in their friendships, as well as within wedding culture — can manifest, which gives the film a more (hilariously) realistic and biting edge over the more standard fare of “Wedding Crashers.”
