Rated R · 125 minutes · 2011

All hail Kristen Wiig, the new queen of comedy. Wiig co-writes and stars as Annie, who recently saw her bakery fail and is stuck in a bad relationship. She’s enlisted by her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), to be her maid of honor—and the timing couldn’t be worse. Annie does a terrible job and is constantly upstaged by a rich bitch (Rose Byrne) contending for Lillian’s friendship. The movie has a big heart to go with big laughs, with some of the gags being wonderfully raunchy. Wiig is so good here (especially during a drunken moment on an airplane) that she deserves awards consideration at year’s end. Melissa McCarthy steals scenes as Megan, the tough-talking, puppy-stealing member of the bridal party. Annie’s relationship with a cop who pulls her over (Chris O’Dowd) is remarkably sweet. The film includes last screen appearance for the late, great Jill Clayburgh.

Indy Week Kristen Wiig gets Apatow-ed in Bridesmaids If nothing else, Bridesmaids rebuts the criticism that Judd Apatow's films are nothing but wish-fulfillment scenarios for schlubby guys; in this one, whininess and low self-esteem are definitely gender-neutral. by Zack Smith 05/11/2011

Charleston City Paper 2011 was the year of a different heroine The cinema of 2011 offered a long overdue news flash. While our brains have been programmed from years of Kate Hudson and Katherine Heigl vehicles to think that all women wanted was a husband and a hot pair of Manolo Blahniks, this year's movies germinated the notion that things aren't quite that simple. Or simple-minded. by Felicia Feaster 12/28/2011
