Last year, Bridesmaids was a bigger hit than anyone could have possibly imagined, receiving almost unanimous critical acclaim and becoming a hit at the box office after opening up at a strong #2 behind THOR. The film was directed by Paul Feig, who let slip a very interesting piece of information while talking to Vulture at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday. "I'm looking forward to The Amazing Spider-Man," he said, adding that he's such a good friend of director Marc Webb, he actually ended up making a contribution to the film's script. "He's a great guy, he invited me on set, and I did a little bit of writing for that movie, for one of the high school scenes, so I'm excited." What do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.

STARRING:

Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy
Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors/The Lizard
Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben
Sally Fields as Aunt May
Denis Leary as George Stacy

RELEASE DATE: July 3rd, 2012.

James Vanderbilt was the main writer, I think. He worked on the story and screenplay. Everyone else sort of added stuff, etc...

TheAmazingHipsterMan: This article was up on CBM and completed a good 15 minutes before yours (hence why yours - which I might add was absolutely nothing like this article - was removed).

Bridesmaids was average. The only thing passable was a fat bird taking a dump in a sink.

And if I wanted to see that I'd just go to one of the local nightclubs.

Oh, so we're just looking the other way on that SPIDER-MAN 3 writer lol.

Golden.

@teabag Shit, I didn't look the other way. I've always been baffled by his name being attached to the Dark Knight AND Blade Trinity. Maybe his writing is better than his directing.

There's one part in Blade Trinity that makes me want to put my foot through the TV screen.

@Tea

lol What is he, a prankster? Attached to shitty movies then inexplicably has his name attached to good ones. Is he [frick]ing with me? It's like having Paul w.s. Anderson co-writing Lord of the Rings.

It's a free-for-all! Hey. Mark Webb. I've got a few ideas if you're interested too...

It's never a good sign when a movie has that many writers.

" This article was up on CBM and completed a good 15 minutes before yours (hence why yours - which I might add was absolutely nothing like this article - was removed)."

If it was nothing like this one then why was it removed?

"From the writers who brought you Spider-Man 3, and Bridesmaids!!!" - - - Well.. I'm sold.
hoodedjester - 4/24/2012, 7:43 AM
well that explains some of the lame humour we have seen so far
Ranger14 - 4/24/2012, 8:53 AM
"Bridesmaids was crap....well i say its crap i havent seen it..but the missis did and she said it wasn't funny"

It was awful...well....at least the first half hour that I struggled to make it through and then wrote it off as a wasted Netflix dvd. It's rare that I can't struggle to make it all the way through a film. Bridesmaids was one of the exceptions. I don't get what all the hoopla was about.

meh more excited for the videogame then this movie


hopefully myy mind changes opening weekend
NeoBaggins - 4/24/2012, 10:33 AM
Really? Bridesmaids almost got me to the theater on a lazy Sunday. Now I kinda glance at it walking by the redbox. I should let it go, huh? Thanks for the heads up.

The fat bitch looked hilarious.

Bridesmaids was actually a pretty solid movie. I didn't laugh nearly as much as my fiance though, but I know of plenty other guys who loved it. It's considered to be the female Hangover, but it's a very loose comparison IMO. Thing is, like Tea, I wasn't a huge fan of the Hangover movie myself. Didn't even see the sequel. Like Bridesmaids, the first Hangover movie was solid, but I didn't die of laughter watching it.

Sounds like a great contribution!
