Top Five Movies of Kristen Wiig
Kristen Wiig first appeared on “Saturday Night Live” in 2005, and I fell head over heels for her at first sight. Funny? Check. Pretty? Check. That’s all. If you got both of those things as a public figure, that’s all I need, as long as you don’t like collecting human hearts in jars or playing “Stab the Writer” with long knives.
Now comes Kristen’s big lead role in her continuing transition to film with the raunchy comedy “Bridesmaids” that is produced by Judd Apatow and directed by Paul Feig (his collaborator on “Freaks and Geeks.”) As far as summer movies go, this one could be the funniest that we see. As a fan of Kristen’s, I hope so. If not, I can fall back on this list of five that are pretty darn good as well. (You’ll see why I don’t feel my hope is misplaced as two other Apatow related movies are listed below. Starting with number five.)
Kristen Bell is hot. So is Mila Kunis. Add in Kristen in a supporting role and you have a trifecta of beauty that should make the biggest impact in the movie. However, no matter what, the first thing I think about from this movie is Jason Segel waving around his penis.
I’m not sure that there are two more charismatic people on NBC’s Thursday night lineup in the last few years than Tina Fey and Steve Carell. Together, they make this movie fun to watch. Add in fun couples like James Franco and Mila Kunis and Kristen and Mark Ruffalo and you realize that the money spent on this movie was all on the actors and not so much on the script.
I know, believing that Seth Rogen and Kristen Heigl end up together is part of what we all want. No matter what, if you have game, you’ll end up with a great lady. But, the most believable thing in this movie has to be the executive played by Kristen.
If there is a character in a movie that has a better time learning to curse than Kristen’s Ruth Buggs, then I haven’t seen it. (I’m counting Colin Firth in “The King’s Speech.”)
I really think that this movie is one of the most underrated of the last few years. Ryan Reynolds does a great job turning his heartthrob image on its ear and you can see the continuing path of greatness for Jesse Eisenberg. Kristen and Bill Hader steal any scene they are in as the people running “Adventureland.”
