* InsultBackfire: Annie's remark that Lillian needs to take her head out of Helen's asshole, "which I'm sure is perfectly bleached!", prompts this.
-->'''Lillian:''' [[spoiler:You know what? It IS perfectly bleached! And you know how I know? Because I went to the salon with her, and I got ''MY'' asshole bleached! AND I ''LOVE'' MY NEW ASSHOLE!!]]

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the "Woman who needs to get her life together and does so over the course of the movie" genre (she instead makes it steadily worse up until the last minute), as well as a few wedding film tropes on top.

* TheIngenue: Becca.
** Actually seems to be a subtle Deconstruction of one. She tells Rita she's only had sex with Kevin, but is frustrated by his unwillingness to be open sexually, even saying desperately to Rita, "And after we've showered, sometimes he's too tired, so I say I am too, but I'm not tired! I'm not tired!", and the discussion even ends with her and Rita [[LesYay drunkenly making out.]] During the Brazilian meal, Megan is saying Lillian is probably crying about marrying Dougie, "I love him, he's my brother, but he's a fucking asshole!", Becca is seen ''cheerfully nodding along'' with the statement.

''Bridesmaids'' is a 2011 comedy starring and co-written by Kristen Wiig of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' fame and co-produced by Creator/JuddApatow. Wiig plays Annie, a single, late-thirties woman stuck in a dead-end job and a dead-end relationship. She faces a new source of anxiety when her old friend Lillian (played by fellow SNL alum Creator/MayaRudolph) gets engaged to a rich guy and seems poised to leave Annie behind for her rich, fancy new friends, especially Lillian's prospective new best friend, Helen (Creator/RoseByrne).

Designed as something of a DistaffCounterpart to ''Film/TheHangover'' and other films of its ilk, and was a massive success, showing that female-driven buddy comedies could be hits and [[GenreRelaunch launching others in its wake]]. It was also a StarMakingRole for many of its actresses, especially [[Creator/MelissaMcCarthy Melissa McCarthy]].
