You could, if you wanted, sit in a dark theater and simply check off the similarities between the blockbuster "Bridesmaids" and this fall's "Bridesmaids" knockoff, titled "Bachelorette." Female bodily function jokes? Check. Inappropriate come-ons on an airplane? Check. Crass, crude and fearlessly frank talk about sex, once reserved for the fraternity house? Check. Wedding dress disasters? Check-eroonie. Enthusiastic cocaine snorting, Xanax and alcohol abuse, abortion jokes ... wait, say what?
