FULL SYNOPSIS

Director [[Performer~P22964~Paul Feig~paulfeig]] and producer [[Performer~P188203~Judd Apatow~juddapatow]] team up again for this comedy that stars [[Performer~P375262~Kristen Wiig~kristenwiig]] as Annie, a romantically unattached failed bakery owner who fears she's losing her BFF, Lillian ([[Performer~P278742~Maya Rudolph~mayarudolph]]), the best thing in her life, when Lillian announces she's gotten engaged. Annie's anxieties deepen as Lillian grows close to Helen ([[Performer~P195364~Rose Byrne~rosebyrne]]), a wealthy and beautiful new friend who quickly assumes control of planning all the pre-wedding festivities. On top of the main storyline of a female friendship being torn apart, the movie adds a romantic storyline for Annie, who starts the film answering a booty call from the casually cruel yet undeniably handsome Ted ([[Performer~P301544~Jon Hamm~jonhamm]]), but develops a lovely flirtation with an Irish cop named Rhodes ([[Performer~P413232~Chris O'Dowd~chrisodowd]]) after he pulls Annie over one night thinking she's driving drunk. As the low-self-esteem Annie sabotages this new possibility for love, she also feels the most important friendship in her life slipping away. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
