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.

Ms. Lauryn Hill

Notorious for being habitually late, it was a relief when Ms. Lauryn Hill took the stage at the Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool on May 13 only an hour and a half after opener Murs ended his set. Hill emerged draped in gold chains, with long pants and hat as her pregnant stomach protruded from beneath her red jacket. Apparently tired of performing the same old songs, Hill and her band rearranged “Everything Is Everything,” “The Sweetest Thing” and “Fu-Gee-La” with a more up-tempo vibe. Although her voice is not what it used to be, her raspy tone delighted the audience.
