Designed as something of a DistaffCounterpart to ''Film/TheHangover'' and other films of its ilk, and was a massive success, showing that female-driven buddy comedies could be hits and [[GenreRelaunch launching others in its wake]]. It was also a StarMakingRole for many of its actresses, especially [[Creator/MelissaMcCarthy Melissa McCarthy]].

* GladIThoughtOfIt: Helen turns down Annie's idea for a Parisian-themed bridal shower, only to actually ending up using the theme for the bridal shower.



* UsefulNotes/{{Milwaukee}}: About half of the plot takes place here.



-->'''Annie:''' What woman gives another woman a trip to Paris?! Am I right? Les~bian!♪ We're all thinking it, aren't we?
-->[the guests shake their heads unconvincingly]
-->'''Megan:''' I was.

* OfficerOHara: Unusual modern example of a DiscreditedTrope with Officer Rhodes, although he's not very stereotypically [[{{Oireland}} Oirish]] outside of the accent. Unusually for the trope, he's mentioned to be an Irish citizen rather than Irish-American.
