Bridesmaids, one of the surprise hits of this past summer, is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray September 2oth. The raunchy comedy, co-written by Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig, produced by comedy hitmaker, Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Super Bad, 40 Year Old Virgin) and directed by Freaks and Geeks creator Paul Feig, bested many bigger budget films and had a healthy life in theaters. In other words, you could still go see it four weeks after its release. The film also features a breakout performance by Melissa McCarthy, who stole every frickin scene she was in.
We here in Popdose land have 3 DVD copies of Bridesmaids to give away. Check out the interesting tidbit below and answer the question and you’ll be entered into the contest. Easy as a shot of tequila!
Although in Bridesmaids, the bachelorette party didn’t quite go as planned, yours doesn’t have to end so poorly! Here is our helpful little guide to jumpstart the perfect last night out and to make sure the bachelorette party is one to remember!
The Location: Vegas, baby! Why not splash the cash and head over to Vegas or Miami for a really wild night out? With casinos, hundreds of bars, restaurants and clubs, cities like these are the perfect locations
for a fantastic bachelorette party! Just try not to get too drunk and thrown off the plane before you make it there, and avoid sleeping pills with alcoholic cocktails at all costs!
Transportation: With so many places and bars to visit, hiring a lavish limo could be the perfect solution to
your travelling issues. You could take a brief tour around the area while sipping champagne on the plush leather seats as some amazing party tunes are being blasted out to get you and all your girl friends in the party mood. Definitely a fantastic way to start the night out of right and see some amazing sights at the same time!
A Bridesmaids Themed Night: Why not go all out like Annie, Helen and the rest of the girls and create a themed
bachelorette party? You could create a Paris themed night with puppies in berets, a real fountain turned into a chocolate fountain plus a giant cookie and a replica of the Eiffel Tower. Or you could create your bachelorette party based on the film, using some of their crazy antics to make your night out unforgettable! But a word to the wise: try not to push over the chocolate fountain…
Accessories: It’s only right that you and the girls deck yourselves out in some outlandish accessories to make sure everyone knows you’re on a bachelorette night out! You could all wear matching t-shirts with the bride’s face printed on them, or even get creative and come up with some nicknames for you and all of your friends and have those printed on the back of the t-shirts.
The bride-to-be should also be decked out in some crazy gear too such as a veil, garter and a sash to make her stand out in the crowd. Why not get some light up buttons, stickers, crowns to really make your outfits unforgettable!
QUESTION: Where was the bridal party in the film going when they were kicked off their plane?
Email Scott Malchus@popdose.com the answer by next Monday (9/19). A winner will be drawn and notified on September 20th. Good luck! Winners must be residents of the U.S. or Canada.
