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

@jferg I'm not sure I agree with you re: smarts and attractiveness being mutually exclusive in female roles. What about Emma Watson in the Harry Potter flicks, Sigourney Weaver and Michelle Rodriguez in Avatar, Angelina Jolie in pretty much every role she plays, Rachel McAdams in Sherlock Holmes, Jodie Foster in Contact, etc.?

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

I didn't see Megan as a Zach Galifinakis/Jonah Hill "oaf"-type character at all. To me, she was accurately portrayed as the engineer/programmer/math nerd she was -- full of drive, smarts, and slightly-crazy-sounding ideas, and not particularly concerned with how she comes off to others.
