Bridesmaids (R)

 ★★★★★

Everyone knows that female comedians have been, well, always the bridesmaid, never the bride. But SNL vet Kristen Wiig smashes cake in the face of convention with the hilarious Bridesmaids, which she co-wrote and stars in as Annie, a single woman facing personal crisis as her best friend (Maya Rudolph) gets engaged. Far more than The Hangover in heels, Bridesmaids has raunch, true wit and an emotional core, which should put it up there with any of producer Judd Apatow’s more testosterone-fueled classics.

Get Your Flick On

Summer movies are the raucous, cheap dates of the cinematic oeuvre; aside from giving you a brief respite from the melanoma-threatening rays and oppressive desert heat, they let you rest your sun-stroked brain for a few hours. Sure, fall may have its heavy-hitting Oscar dramas and spring may bring bundles of bright and bouncy rom-coms, but summer is the season for CGI-stuffed spectacles and rowdy, boundary-pushing comedies, the kinds of movies that no one in their right mind would ever call “films”—in a good way.
