Bridesmaids. Paul Feig. 2011. ⚁
This is supposed to be the bleakest, most misanthropic movie ever.

This is really bleak!
Look! She put fondant petals on top of the cupcake! Those may be classified as “edible” according to veterinarian standards, but nobody would want that shit anywhere near their mouths, so putting that on a cupcake is just… bizarre.
This was a gruelling, horrible slog. But… I think they were aiming for funny and light-hearted, somehow? Despite everybody in this movie being horrible human beings? Including the main character?
It’s just mind-bogglingly depressing.
