Is a Bridesmaids sequel really a good idea?


 Sequels traditionally are such mixed bags, and I don't know about you guyz out there in the peanut gallery, but Bridesmaids is easily one of my favorite films of recent memory. So earnestly hilarious, from start to finish. And sequels seem to be the realm of shitty, cheese-tastic action films. Or comedies without quite as much heart or talent. So I have a lot of....uh, ambivalent feelings. 


Last I heard, Kristen Wiig was still in talks for a sequel. What do you think?

I'd totally steal fitness classes too, for the record. And also, Ellie Kemper is the cutest thing in the world.

  1. I would watch it. I'm sure it could be funny, but can't say 100%.

  2. I'm not sure it's a good idea. Writers/directors/actors always run the risk of trying to 'better' the first film in the franchise and they usually make a debacle of a sequel. I'm thinking Hangover 2, the Friday series (the Chris Tucker movies) or the Rush Hour series. Sounds like I'm picking on Chris Tucker there, though I actually like him.

    Also, Ellie Kemper is super cute. Brilliant in The Office.

  3. she's the best part about the Office now. and also, the Hangover 2 I was told was the same as the first one. :/

  4. As long as director Paul Feig returns and isn't just cashing in on the success of the original--and Wiig and Annie Mumolo script it--maybe lightning can strike twice? I'll totally shit in a sink if it's a success!!!

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
