Judd Apatow Takes a Victory Lap Through Nikki Finke’s Inbox

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Needless to say, Judd himself used the occasion to bitchslap me over my pre-release belief that the R-rated comedy featuring women burping and farting for our female amusement wouldn’t have an opening domestic weekend bigger than $13M, even $15M tops, before it actually debuted with $26.2M: “I am so delighted to confirm that I was right and you were wrong,” Apatow emailed me for posting here. “From now on when you say something which hurts me, I will remember to read your early Bridesmaids opinions and predictions and that will soothe me.” Ouch! — Deadline’s Nikki Finke, on the email she received from Judd Apatow after Bridesmaids officially surpassed Knocked Up as the producer’s biggest box office success.

We’re disappointed, Nikki Finke. Have a little faith for the sisterhood next time, wouldja?
