    SXSW Review: How the Murder Mystery 'Wild Canaries' Transcends the Clichés of NYC Hipster Comedies

    The struggles of young New Yorkers have provided fodder for countless middle-of-the-road portraits of urban angst that vainly strive to reach for the tropes of Woody Allen angst.

    The last time Universal screened one of their big summer comedies at South by Southwest, it turned out to be "Bridesmaids"—a movie that not only proved to be a massive financial success (and a breakthrough for its cowriter/star Kristin Wiig) but a critical one as well, even earning an Academy Award ...
