The movie: "Bridesmaids"

When: Opening Friday at local theaters

Cast: Kristen Wiig , Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy

The story: When her best friend asks her to serve as her maid of honor, lovelorn -- and broke -- Annie tries to bluff her way through the expensive and bizarre nuptial rituals alongside her oddball fellow bridesmaids.
