With all the buzz surrounding this weekend's female-lead comedy 'Bridesmaids,' it's probably easy to predict just what kind of comedy audiences are in store for. After all, it's produced by 'Knocked Up' and 'Superbad' impresario Judd Apatow and directed by 'Freaks and Geeks' creator Paul Feig. But what exactly is 'Bridesmaids' about -- and, after all the speculation, is 'Bridesmaids' funny?

What Is 'Bridemaids' About?
'Bridesmaids' is about Annie Walker (Kristen Wiig) a down-on-her-luck Milwaukee woman with bills piling up, a dead-end job and a lousy, asshole hook-up buddy (Jon Hamm). The one person she seems to enjoy is her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph). So when Lillian gets engaged, she asks Annie to be her maid of honor.
