At the beginning of this month, I announced that I would be hosting Food ‘n Flix with my chosen movie Bridesmaids. I love all the groups I am part of but I have to say there is a level of exchange with this group I just don’t get with others. Not only do we cook from a same inspiration, we also discuss the movies. It creates a real virtual conversation. And this month we welcomed 2 new members: Wendy and Joanne. We hope to see them regularly and perhaps you would like to join?
Many saw this movie for a 2nd or 3 rd time, and a lot saw it for the first time. And boy were the opinions varied this month. Like many who saw Bridesmaids for the first time this month, I have to admit the first time I saw the movie I was not super crazy like everyone else was. There is a lot of slap stick comedy.
I know I am not alone with my initial reaction but I found a really good quote online from Roger Ebert saying this movie: “seems to be a more or less deliberate attempt to cross the Chick Flick with the Raunch Comedy. It definitely proves that women are the equal of men in vulgarity, sexual frankness, lust, vulnerability, overdrinking and insecurity.” I did see it again a year later and really enjoyed it. I got passed the gimmicky stuff and saw more into the heart of the movie. For this challenge I now saw it for a 3rd time and I can definitely say it is a favorite comedy.
Well I would have been surprised but I was hoping someone would be inspired by the Brazilian restaurant. But considering the , ahum, outcome we will have to forgo Brazil this time lol. But it is a delicious cuisine to explore. Besides that there were tons of sweet inspirations: from cakes, cookies, cream puff, cupcakes to massive chocolate fountains. The savory options in the movie were pretty minimal but booze and beverages played a big role.
Today I have the pleasure of presenting the roundup of all the participants. Hope you have a sweet tooth and at the end enjoy a glass of lemonade!
Wendy from A Day in the Life on the Farm made a Carrot Cake ala The Bridesmaids
Debra from Eliot’s Eats made a Rosemary Lemonade

I just watched this on the plane on the way to Hawaii! I remember her making that cupcake and the racoon eating the cake-so fun 🙂
I saw that movie in theatres with some friends. It was hilarious and cringeworthy at the same time.

I have to admit that I had my doubts when you first announced this, but I loved the movie and there was a lot of inspiration. Everyone outdid themselves, I believe!
p.s…I’m so happy that you love those things about the F’nF “club”, because I do too. 🙂
Yay, so much fun! I was wondering if anybody would be able to get past the nasty…apparently not ;). ha ha ha ha! Anyway, nice and sweet is just fine by me. Thanks so much for being our hostess with the mostess, Evelyne!
A great range of entries, I’m surprised nobody made Brazilian food!
Thanks for hosting Evelyne, it was fun!!
Fabulous round-up. I CONSIDERED Brazilian for a brief moment, but, as you said, was deterred by the outcome! 😉 Thanks for hosting, Evelyne.
