Well … at least we know what happened to Jake Ryan after graduation. He became a police officer in Milwaukee.
At least that’s what I thought after watching Bridesmaids.
I know I’ve already off-topically reviewed the movie once, but it turns out there was something else to note.
Did anyone else catch the 16 Candles ending? The bridesmaid heroine is standing alone, after a wedding, she looks up … poof … here’s the hero.
The great thing about being old and quasi-movie literate is that it’s easy to catch an homage (and I’m calling it an “homage,” not “rip-off”). Of course, the bad thing about being old and quasi-literate is that sometimes trying to catch the odd reference gets in the way.
But, that’s OK. And horribly off-topic.
Otherwise, Bridesmaids pretty much lives up to whatever you’ve read about it. Maybe a budding genre of chick gross-out comedies is on the way. Complete with street-pooping and sub sandwich role play.
Anyway, what other 80s teen movie should get an homage? Hiding Out?
