This summer's movie schedule is filled with the sequels, prequels and big-budget blockbuster tentpoles audiences have come to expect every year, but this summer also brought out several R-rated comedies, such as The Hangover Part II, Bad Teacher, Horrible Bosses, and Bridesmaids.

In an interview with Movieline, Bridesmaids director Paul Feig discussed the landmark.
