A single maid of honor (Kristen Wiig) begins a steady descent into lunacy when she meets her engaged friend's (Maya Rudoph) new, perfect BFF (Rose Byrne).
Why It's Worth Seeing: Funny movies are tough sells for Academy audiences. But this industry-rattling hit -- yes, women can be funny and make money! -- is an across-the-board critical success and crowd-pleaser. To wit: It received a Golden Globe nomination for best comedy and a best comedic actress nod for Kristen Wiig. And although Melissa McCarthy wasn't nominated for a supporting actress Golden Globe (ahem, snub!), the actress was a physical-comedy revelation in the role and shouldn't be counted out come Oscar time.
