We gave it a C+

When Isla Fisher attacked Vince Vaughn in Wedding Crashers, she stole more than his dignity — she also walked away with the title of Great Up-and-Coming Comic Actress. This summer Fisher, 31, woos us with roles as the sweet foil to Andy Samberg’s bumbling biker in Hot Rod (Aug. 3) and then as a woman who marries a stranger in Wedding Daze (Aug. 17).

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: In Hot Rod you play the straight woman. Was it tough to hold back?
ISLA FISHER: The boys got to make all the great jokes! And it’s especially difficult, because you’re the eyes of the audience.

Wedding Daze and Hot Rod come out within two weeks of each other. I don’t have much cash. Which should I see?
Oh, my God! You are trying to get me into trouble. I can’t answer that!
