EP. 173 — Bridesmaids

Amy & Paul let loose with 2011’s breakthrough Kristin Wiig comedy Bridesmaids! They praise Wiig’s nuanced lead performance, break down the dynamics of the airplane scene, and discuss how Bridesmaids transcends tokenistic conversations about women in comedy. Plus: What happened in Vegas in an early draft of the film?
