Bridesmaids is the film that resurrected the debate about women in comedy. Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo co-wrote this hilarious buddy comedy, which stars a serious line-up of female talent including Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Rebel Wilson, Ellie Kemper and more. Just as Annie (Wiig) is set to be the maid-of-honour for her best friend’s wedding, her life spirals out of control – and she has trouble holding up her end of things. Through a series of hilarious missteps, Annie takes us on a journey of life, love and friendship. Bridesmaids was nominated for two Oscars including Best Original Screenplay, as well as two Golden Globes.
