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.

No Need for Garlic

By M. Scott Krause

Other than a brief respite from vampires and zombies, and the absence of Stieg Larsson, this year’s crop of summer books is going to feel an awful lot like last summer’s. Oh sure, there will be an increasing number of savvy consumers hunched over an iPad 2, Nook Color or a Kindle 3G, but even as technology changes, authors stay the same. From now until August, readers can enjoy a steady stream of new books and paperback reprints from best-selling authors such as David Baldacci, Danielle Steel, and Nelson DeMille.
