2011 Guide Analysis: "Thankfully looking a lot more interesting than other wedding-themed comedies of late like "Bride Wars" and "Made of Honor", this comedy is produced by Judd Apatow and his involvement in a project usually means two things aside from laughs - namely heavy handed sentimentality, and a runtime a good half hour too long. Indeed the first test screening for the film clocked in at an almost painful sounding 142 minutes. That number thankfully has been cut down to just under two hours now.
Paul Feig, who has served as producer on such shows as "Nurse Jackie," "The Office" and "Freaks and Geeks", helms from a script co-written by Wiig. Wiig herself is poised to be a breakout female comedy star and stole the show in this year's "MacGruber". With this being labelled the "female version of 'The Hangover'" and a strong supporting cast, there's hope in spite of Apatow's output proving overrated with only odd exceptions ("Superbad," "Pineapple Express"). Hopefully this will be one of those exceptions."
