Melissa McCarthy and the Bridesmaids crew may return for a sequel

I’m not really a huge fan of sequels, but I thought the recent female comedy BRIDESMAIDS was crazy funny and those ladies played so well off of each other that I would gladly welcome a sequel. During a recent screening director Paul Feig was asked about the possibility of a sequel and here’s what he said, “Who knows? I mean, it depends how we do in the next couple weeks, but I know there’s definitely … it’s already been brought up. So, um, you know, when you get a group that’s this deep and this good, it’s a crime to not use them again. You just want to make sure that you do it as well as you did the first one and try to make it better, even. So, we’re up for the challenge.” Melissa McCarthy was close by and was asked the same question and she basically said that if this group ever wanted to get together to do something in the future she was completely game. It’ll be interesting to see if they go the sequel route or do a spin-off of one of the characters.
Either way, if you haven’t had a chance to catch BRIDESMAIDS at the theater then I highly recommend it. Two years ago everyone was falling over themselves saying how funny THE HANGOVER was, but I would watch BRIDESMAIDS over THE HANGOVER or THE HANGOVER PART II any day of the week.
