For Annie (Kristen Wiig) life has become a bit of a mess. With a failed bakery business behind her, she now has a dead-end job in a jewellery shop.
Her sleazy boyfriend Ted (John Hamm) ranks her as a lowly number three on his 'friends with benefits' list and the only people she can confide in are her mother and her best friend.
But now Lilian has announced that she's marrying her boyfriend and Annie simply must be the maid of honour...
Suddenly, our miserable, emotionally needy heroine finds herself in charge of four new friends - Disney-loving Becca (Ellie Kemper), drunken housewife Rita (Wendi McLendon-Covey), overweight motormouth Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and wealthy perfectionist Helen (Rose Byrne), who's determined to be Maid of Honour herself.
Next is a bachelorette party in Las Vegas. And we all know 'what happens in Vegas...'
