Kristen Wiig reveals how she co-wrote ‘Bridesmaids’ screenplay

Kristen Wiig said she and her “Bridesmaids” writing partner, Annie Mumolo, bought a “how to write a screenplay book” when they got the green light from Judd Apatow. The “Saturday Night Live” comedian told Jon Stewart of her first film writing experience, “I went to her house for the first day and she bought like chips and carrots and we had our book and we’re like” (excitedly rubs palms together).

While it’s pretty clear that Mumolo is a real person (according to IMDB she plays “Nervous Woman on Plane” in the new film), “The Daily Show” host had his doubts, saying the name sounds made up: “My friend Diane Pfafafafa knows her very well.”

“Bridesmaids,” as Stewart pointed out, currently has a 90 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The Washington Post’s Ann Hornaday gave the film three out of four stars, saying “Wiig plants a bawdy, brave and brashly feminist flag in the male-dominated raunch-com genre.”
