    I hope this works out. I love those characters but have serious doubts that they can carry a movie entirley on their own. However, if Apatow can keep the runtime reasonable i think it should be just fone.

    I LOVE Melissa McCarthy! She absolutely stole "Bridesmaids". As a bridesmaid on a tight budget, I recently discovered Glamforless.com for great deals on bridal jewelry and hair accessories for brides and bridesmaids.
