Revenge of the Bridesmaids (2010)

dir. James Hayman

At first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking this was an attempt to rip off Bridesmaids, banking on the hope that people would confuse the two. But nope, because this one actually came out a year before Bridesmaids did, so there’s really no excuse for the fact it feels like a cheap imitation of a cheap imitation. The whole thing is utterly meanspirited, but not in a fun way, unless you get a whole load of fun out of infidelity, fake pregnancies and feigned friendships. It’s all especially jarring because one of the main characters is played by Raven. Women being portrayed as manipulative, deceitful witches in the apparent name of feminism? That is not so Raven.
