Annie thinks her life has hit bottom. Her business goes under, her boyfriend leaves her, and she starts sleeping with a guy who doesn't want to be in a relationship. Things start to pick up when her best friend Lillian gets engaged and she's asked to be the maid of honor, but then only get worse when she's constantly being outdone by the perfect bridesmaid, Helen. Join Annie and the rest of the bridesmaids for the dress fitting and bachelorette party from hell. If you're looking for a good go-with-your-girlfriends kind of movie this is it. The SNL comedic genius of Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph is great, but Melissa McCarthy steals every scene. [If you like this one, you may also enjoy "Bride Wars", another great comedic wedding movie.] -- recommended by Carrie K. - Bennett Martin Public Library and South Branch Library
