Friday the 13th is usually a day for avoiding black cats and scary movies, but instead we’re celebrating the fifth anniversary of the new classic comedy Bridesmaids.
The film starred Kristen Wiig (who also co-wrote the flick with Annie Mumolo), Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, and Ellie Kemper and raked in $288.4 million worldwide. The Oscar nominated movie became a staple in the comedy world and gave us hilarious quotes that most of us still repeat verbatim everyday.
We’re celebrating the film’s quinquennial with a list of the best life advice we picked up from Bridesmaids.
