Director Paul Feig's film takes the typically cliched wedding movie genre and completely upends it and reinvents it into something surprisingly daring and alive. But it also takes the Judd Apatow-style buddy comedy, with its mixture of raunchiness, neurosis and sentimentality, and tailors it to female experiences and sensibilities. That the film achieves both of these ambitious goals simultaneously while remaining (mostly) hilarious is a testament to the power of Kristen Wiig as co-writer and star, and to the awesomely eclectic ensemble cast of strong comediennes who surround her.

Wow, maybe you should post other critics' lists, like maybe people who can relate a little to our market and demographics. That is the most obscure list of best movies I have ever seen. I haven't heard of one of them. How about Doug Wright or Chris Hicks or someone with some good family values?
