On 'Bridesmaids': Am I Doing Being A Woman Wrong?

I'm super DUPER over people ragging on Bridesmaids for being anti-feminist or whatever. Where are they getting this idea? Guess what, humorless movie critic, movies cannot be all things to all people. It's not Kristen Wiig's responsibility to write a movie that worships and redeems womankind for all eternity. She wrote a funny ass movie that was relatable and clever, and you know what? That's all I want in a comedy. I am not going to worry about what gender norms it may be reifying if I'm laughing my ass off at it and it's not overtly offensive. And I wouldn't laugh at something anti-woman, because I am woman, hear me roar. UGH, UGH. Get over it.
