Help Influence Episode 72!


Recommended Posts

Yes, you can help influence not only the film Pandy & I use as the joint review, but the homework we assign each other to plot the range of their career. As announced in Episode 70, our subject will be Kirsten Wiig.

Pandy & I will take an executive decision on what makes the joint review by Saturday 21 December so get your ideas in before then! 

NB) Remember, we need films where she is at least third billed. So we're not doing Knocked UP, for example.

That's all there is right?

Bridemaids and Ghostbusters.

I'm tempted to say The Martian or Walk Hard but in each she's part of a large ensemble and each film would probably be better for episodes devoted to their respective main stars (Matt Damon and John C. Reilly).

Eh, most of that is just SNL cameo stuff. I'm talking features actress in a movie that made cinemas.

I said Wikipedia, not IMDB. Still, to test your theory, let's compare Wiig's filmography from Bridesmaids onwards (for films only) against all of Lilly's films. I'll use spoiler tags for legibility.

Kristen Wiig:

2011     Friends with Kids
2012     Revenge for Jolly!

Evangeline Lily

I guess I like her in Despicable Me? And I like Bridesmaids. I don't have anything against her I just dont remember her being in much stuff, even things I've seen that shes credited in. She was in The Martian? I literally dont remember that.

Tbf you may have been more preoccupied by Matt Damon growing potatoes on Mars using shit, but she's there.
