|But Bridesmaids was better than Fever Pitch.|
Maybe it's because I'm a fan of Nick Hornby's books but I really liked the US version of Fever Pitch. Bridesmaides worked for me but wasn't that good as it was acclaimed by the critics. So I would disagree with your thesis.
But I'm not trying to ruin this weak Wiig hatred: Bridesmaides was better than Jimmys 'Taxi'.
