Hilarious feel-good rom-com

Definitely some adult humor but nothing too inappropriate. The plot moves well and is funny. Strong female leads with great acting. Would definitely recommend if you’re in the mood for some light hearted romance.

More adult humour chick flick

Id rate this film a 15 unless your the type of parent that doesnt mind your child hearing the odd swear words and devious behaviour then id recommend pg. But revenge of the bridesmaids is insanely funny and such a good watch. Brilliant adult humour and a perfect chick flick for those " time of the month" moments.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (17 ):

REVENGE OF THE BRIDESMAIDS succeeds thanks to strong writing and a great cast. Raven-Symone is a scene stealer as the sharp-tongued Abigail, who brings a big-city air and her self-stated problems with authority to this sham of a shotgun wedding, which doesn't stand a chance once she's set her sights on bringing it -- and the manipulative duo behind it -- to its knees. She and her friends are heroes to anyone who's ever dreamed of getting back at our own childhood bullies.

But this isn't a pick for family movie night, as much of the content requires a certain level of maturity to put into context. The repeated references to Caitlyn's unexpected pregnancy are likely to raise a host of questions from younger kids, as will other comments about sleeping around or having sex for personal gain. Language ("bitch," "damn," "ass," and the like) is another concern, as is Caitlyn and Olivia's manipulative behavior and their disregard for anyone's feelings. Then, of course, there are the multiple counts of breaking the law -- and the relative ease with which the characters escape prosecution -- that Abigail and Parker justify in the name of true love.
