It is more than your standard rom-com; it is a genuinely funny movie performed by some of the best comedy actresses in the industry. Here are 10 Bridesmaids facts so good you’ll poop your pants from The List Love.

1. Improvisation

Despite the fact the movie took years for Kristin Wiig (Annie) and Annie Mumolo (the nervous plane passenger) to write, the cast spent two weeks improvising with each other, and some of their ideas made it into the final cut of the movie.

Most of the engagement party scenes were improvised, despite the fact the a full script was already written. The director, Paul Feig, told the cast member to “just talk” prior to filming the scenes.

2. Real-Life Roommates

Rebel Wilson (Brynn) and Matt Lucas (Gil) loved being fake roommates so much they decided to live together in real life, too. However, the pair received complaints from their neighbours for singing Annie showtunes too loudly.

3. Annie’s Mom

Annie’s mother was played by the talented Jill Clayburgh, who unfortunately passed away the year before the film’s release. Many of her dirty joke scenes were therefore cut to preserve her memory.

4. Wayne Manor

The engagement party scene was filmed at the same location as Wayne Manor from the Batman TV series.

5. The Credits

Jon Hamm Bridesmaids

Jon Hamm’s name was not listed in the opening credits to avoid audiences believing it was a serious movie, as he was most famous for his dramatic role as Don Draper in TV’s Mad Men.

6. Irish Accent

Chris O’Dowd’s character Rhodes was originally scripted to have an American accent, but the creators fell in love with the Irish man’s accent so much that they decided he should keep it.

7. Real Couple

Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone

Air Marshall Jon just couldn’t resist Megan’s thick calves, so much that they ended up sharing a rather dirty sandwich at the end of the movie. If you thought they had chemistry onscreen, you should see them off screen, as Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone are married to each other in real life.

8. Vomit

The vomit in the dress-fitting scene is made from a mix of oatmeal and food colouring.

9. The Bra

Annie keeps her bra on during the sex scenes with Ted (Jon Hamm), but takes it off during her sex scene with Rhodes. This is because Paul Feig and Kristin Wiig believed it would symbolise that Annie felt like she could open up emotionally to Nathan in a way she never could with Ted.

10. Thai Language

Rose Byrne Bridesmaids

Rose Byrne (Helen) improvised the scene where she spoke Thai. The producers loved it and chose to add it into the movie; however, she had made the words up, and so they made her learn Thai words for the scene.
