Kristen Wiig (SNL) is Annie a thirty-something woman without any clue on how to make her life work let alone be a success. She works a low paying sales job she hates and appears as if she doesn’t care if she is still employed. Though Annie tries to ignore how awful her life is, until her best friend Lillian (Mya Rudolf also another SNL contender) announces that she is getting married and wants Annie to be her maid of honor.

This movie is not just about when your friends get married or about weddings in general, it’s about when everyone you know is moving own with their lives and you feel left behind. However, don’t think Annie is throwing herself a pity party she can clearly go with the flow and she proves that even when she crashes Lillian’s bridal party or gets drunk on the plane, there’s something about a wreak lose that can be some-what amusing. This ensemble cast includes Melissa McCarthy (Mike and Molly, The Heat) Chris O’Dowd (Superbad) which Chris brings his own delightful charisma in the few short scenes that he does have and Wendi McLendon-Covey (Rules of Engagement) that makes this comedy a sure-fire hit and not just for those who soon will be walking down the aisle.

I love this movie because you have two of SNL’s most talented and humorous actresses together again on the big-screen. You can tell the whole cast had a lot of fun making the film because it wasn’t just funny but also light-hearted and charismatic.
