The summer season has long been known for epic, big-budget films and broad animated comedies. But over the last few years, summer has become known for something else: The Judd Apatow Produced Comedy. Apatow has become a comedy commodity the likes that summer has never seen before. From the Will Ferrell comedies Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights and Step Brothers, to his own comedy crew that has brought us Knocked Up, Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and last summer’s spin-off Get Him to the Greek, Apatow has been the king of summer comedies in recent memory. But Apatow has been known for producing comedies that mostly focus on the male mentality, but this weekend he changes that with the release of Bridesmaids. Directed by Paul Feig who has written for some of the past decades best TV shows, such as “Freaks and Geeks”, “Arrested Development”, “Mad Men” and “The Office”, and written by Kristen Wiig, Bridesmaids seems like it should be the formula for the summer’s first comedy hit. But before checking Bridesmaids out, check out some of these under-ranked films from the stars of Bridesmaids.

ToryK – “I loved these guys growing up. Still do. But I think Tarantino’s most recent movie beats Rodriguez’, no contest. Machete was nuts, true. But to me, it was nowhere near as fun as Desperado. Or even Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Basterds felt like Tarantino taking his own movies apart, finding out what makes them tick, and building a new film with that knowledge in mind. I didn’t dislike Machete, I was just disappointed. I wanted more from a guy I was used to having to having so much fun with.”

I reviewed this movie when it first came out for the site. I originally placed it in my top 33% but it’s fallen to around top 37% since. I expect it to keep dropping a bit as nothing has really stuck with me about the movie five months later.

Official Synopsis from Universal Studios: “In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel’s brother, Nev. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives. A reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times, Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.”

I’m horribly embarrassed to admit that I’ve seen the first movie in the series. I had siblings under 10 at the time if that makes it any better.

When a female Disney Channel star “grows up,” she’s expected to take on adult roles by getting naked but when it’s a male, he can be taken more seriously by starring in romantic, family dramas. That’s odd to me…

Throw away all your negative preconceived notions about this movie. Steve Carell’s haircut looks awful and the trailers don’t make it seem like anything special, but it’s actually a very solid comedy.
