In this movie, romantic envy and class envy coalesce, because Bridesmaids understands just how they're linked. Even if money can't buy you love, being broke puts you at a distinct disadvantage.
The movie is smart about a lot of things, including the vital importance of female friendships. And it's nice to see so many actresses taking up space while making fun of something besides other women.
No one has explored the inner workings of a passive-aggressive frenemy the way Wiig has. She has the Midas touch for activating a character's petty streak while still making audiences like her.
