Annie (Kristen Wiig), is a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), and a group of colorful bridesmaids (Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Ellie Kemper) on a wild ride down the road to matrimony. Annie's life is a mess. But when she finds out her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian's maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals. With one chance to get it perfect, she'll show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you'll go for someone you love.Written by
Maya Rudolph was pregnant with her third child during the filming of this movie. Most of the clothes she wore had a belt on them to distract from her stomach. See more »

The 131-minute unrated version contains several additional scenes as follows:
The conversation between Annie (Kristen Wiig) and Mother (Jill Clayburgh) is slightly longer with Mother telling her about Father's "chicken coop" sex act, and it also reveals that Annie's father grew up in a farm.
Becca (Ellie Kemper) mocks Annie for being single and offers to arrange a date for her.
The car ride with Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and Annie after the bridal store fiasco is longer and different than the theatrical version. In the new cut, after Lilian admits crapping her wedding dress, Annie starts to feel uncomfortable, gets out of the car and throws up.
When Annie is at the bathroom, Gil (Matt Lucas) and his sister were in the bathtub together. He asks Annie to hand her the disposable shaver and shaves his sister's armpits.
There's a new 5-minute scene where Annie has a date with a guy called Pete. While waiting at the living room for Pete to get ready, she has a very uncomfortable conversation with his son Taylor (he's talking about "fear of dying", asking about Annie replacing his mother, etc.). After Annie goes upstairs, she overhears Pete talking on the phone telling his wife how he missed her and describes Annie as unattractive. Shocked by that, she went back downstairs and saw Taylor taking some contraceptive pills before leaving the house hastily.
The home video of Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and Jon (Ben Falcone) is slightly longer. She sticks a slice of ham on his chest and eats them. However, Jon's reaction doesn't tell whether he likes it or not.
Not much to say about this one - it's just a really funny comedy. The cast have great chemistry, Abbie actually has a pretty good arc across the film, and whilst it is a little bit too long in my opinion, it managed to hold my interest for the entire runtime. Mostly though, the film is just really funny. Part of this is from how the actors deliver their lines, with Melissa McCarthy in particular making the most out of every line. But yeah, the film was just funny, and I had a great time with it. Overall, this is a great comedy, and one that achieves everything it wanted to achieve. If you're a fan of comedies, you'll no doubt enjoy this.
