This comedy classic is about more than wacky, pre-wedding hijinks—it’s a relatable story about the way friendships evolve as we grow and mature. Brilliant comedic performances from Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Oscar-nominated Melissa McCarthy make this movie so rewatchable with jokes that keep you laughing many times over.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

True crime, anyone? Snapped unravels real-life tragic cases across America focused on women that finally snap after years of abusive treatment. The episodes are geared around the women’s stories of how they came to murder their spouse (or someone else in the picture). This show is not for the faint of heart, but if you need a program that draws you in without knowing what’s coming next, this is for you.
