The Happy Couple: Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and some guy no-one remembers because he’s barely in it. OK, so it’s actually Dougie (Tim Heidecker)
The Hanger On: Annie (Kristen Wiig)
What’s the situation? Lillian’s getting married, but her best friend and maid of honour (note spelling, Dempsey!) can’t quite be happy about it, as it throws her own bad life choices into sharp relief. Then Lillian’s other friend, Helen (Rose Byrne) shows up, all perfect outfits and pots of money, and steals the show. What’s a hapless screw-up to do? Why, give everyone food poisoning, cause the bride to have a really unfortunate accident during a bridal fitting, ruin the hen party and almost lead the bride to back out of the wedding, that’s what. Still, all’s well that ends well, eh?
Worst moment: That dress fitting with THAT toilet moment. There was really NO NEED.
Moral of the story? Carry Imodium at all times. And maybe try to explain your reservations to the bride rather than going off the reservation.
