Last night I posted the trailer for the movie, which opens Friday. Tonight I’m posting an email I got from Kirsten Smith, who, with her writing partner Karen McCullah, has scripted such monster female-driven hits as “Legally Blonde,” “House Bunny” and “The Ugly Truth.” Here’s what she sent out:
I know you get a lot of emails about donating money to worthy causes, but I’d like to draw your attention to one in particular:
The Chick Flick.
It is currently on the Motion Picture Association of America’s list of Endangered Species and it faces extinction if we don’t act now.
And by now, I mean this Friday’s 8pm show of BRIDESMAIDS at the Arclight. Bring your flask, your pot cookies, your Diet Coke and your favorite human. You can buy your tickets online at https://www.arclightcinemas.com/ArcLight/faces/MovieDetails.jsp?movieName=BRIDESMAIDS&movieType=ComingSoon&pageInfo=Coming-Soon¤tCinemaId=1001 <https://www.arclightcinemas.com/ArcLight/faces/MovieDetails.jsp?movieName=BRIDESMAIDS&movieType=ComingSoon&pageInfo=Coming-Soon&currentCinemaId=1001>
Let’s show the planet we are capable of queefing out some major box-office lady-power.
Penises also allowed. Pass it on. See you Friday.
The Arclight theater is in L.A., but the point is to go see the movie wherever you live if you want Hollywood to keep making chick flicks. Kirsten asked everybody to pass the word around. I’m passing it around.
