Bridesmaids is highest-grossing R-rated female comedy ever

Overtakes Sex And The City

Bridesmaids has proven that filthy, funny female movies can have their cake and eat it - it’s just become the highest-grossing R-rated female comedy ever.

The Kristen Wiig hoot-fest has now made $152.9m at the US box office, meaning it’s snatched the crown from Sex And The City as queen of the female comedy.

It's a title well-earned, considering Bridesmaids has received almost unanimously positive reviews (we called it "a side-splitting comedy that lifts the veil on every wedding’s unsung heroines").

That surely means that Wiig is now something of a hot property, considering she not only starred in, but also spent years writing the Bridesmaids script.

You can bet that in light of the film’s success (both financially and critically), she’ll be receiving quite a few phone calls about what she’s going to do next.

The same can probably be said of her co-stars, with Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy and Maya Rudolph all providing laughs-a-plenty with their outrageous characters.

There's already been talk of a Bridesmaids 2 - could it be Annie's turn to walk down the aisle?

Want a Bridesmaids 2? Or think the first film should stand on its own? Talk to us below...

      The whole of SATC (series and all) was as about as funny as a poo sandwich, even 'Triumph of the Will' had more laughs..

      "Highest grossing R-rated female comedy ever?" As a matter of interest, what other films are in that category?
