From the She Said/She Said series of movie reviews ... Natalie: I really wanted to like Girl Most Likely. Kristen Wiig as a New York playwright with a zany, dysfunctional family seemed promising—almost Bridesmaids-promising.
Kristen Wiig is the ultimate girls' girl: One you can party with, cry with, hang with or veg with and still have it be awesome, hilarious and amazing—and she's coming back to 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend to host! (Dude, we've missed her so much!)
Before meeting her now-husband, Drew Barrymore was in a serious, five-year relationship with Fabrizio Moretti; she never expected him to one day be dating one of her girlfriends!
Even though she had a tearful last episode of Saturday Night Live just a few months ago, Kristen Wiig says she now feels better than ever, and her healthy relationship with boyfriend Fabrizio Moretti is largely responsible.
Melissa McCarthy has been capturing the hearts of television viewers for over a decade. In the early 2000s, she played the lovable, scatter-brained Snookie on 'Gilmore Girls.' Last year, she won an Emmy for her new television role as Molly in the comedy series, 'Mike & Molly.'

Being in a wedding party isn't easy, especially if you don't really know the other women in the group. So, Kristen Wiig decided to avoid that awkwardness before she and her cast mates began filming their hilarious flick, 'Bridesmaids.' What's a girl to do when she's in need of some serious bonding time with other women? Why, head to a male strip club, of course!

If I hear one more person describe Bridesmaids as "the female version of The Hangover," I'm going to Kristen Wiig out. Why do we have to label a movie that's hilarious in its own right as the female version of something else? Well, actually I know why. Because a lot of comedies starring women aren't exactly thought of as "funny." And a lot of wedding-related movies are cheesier than they are clever and witty. Bridesmaids is a long overdue exception. Despite its title and premise, it's not really about a wedding, either. We don't even really meet the groom. The movie is about two best friends growing in different directions. Annie (Kristen Wiig) is stuck in a dead-end job after the bakery she opened—and the boyfriend who helped her run it—both go out of business. Her best friend Lillian (Maya Rudolph) has always been her cheerleader and confidante. But their relationship changes when Lillian gets engaged and asks Annie to be the maid of honor.
This is God's perfect movie. (OK, maybe it's Kristen Wiig and Judd Apatow's perfect movie, but whatever.) Amelia and I laughed from the opening credits to the closing credits, when she turned to me and said, "I would watch that all over again right now!" And we both would have. You could see “Bridesmaids” on date night, you could see it on girls' night, or you could see it with your parents (if an extended, gross-out scene about food poisoning and diarrhea is something you can stomach next to your parents).
