THE PLAN TURNS TO SPONTANEITY

COMPARABLE MOVIES

In Burning Girl, our protagonist is thrown completely out of her comfort zone, and forced to break free of the bubble and life she previously knew. 

 

The best comparisons to our film are female-driven, low-budget hilarious comedies such as:

Bridesmaids, Trainwreck, Girls Trip, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

Worldwide Box Office Gross:

Bridesmaids (2011): $288 Million Grossed

Trainwreck (2015): $140 Million Grossed

Girls Trip (2017): $140 Million Grossed

Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008): $105 Million Grossed

These are high grossing films and it's time for a funny, over the top, raunchy comedy of 2021. We think Burning Girl is exactly that!
