Amy Schumer, Trainwreck
Plot: Magazine scribe Amy (Schumer) has a motto that monogamy is bogus, burning through men like a brush fire in pumps.
Superpower: Serial shagging
Achilles' heel: Bill Hader, as a boyfriend-worthy sports doctor who throws her off her game

Rebel Wilson, Pitch Perfect 2
Plot: Anna Kendrick's Beca may be the belle of the Barden Bellas, but they'd be nothing without the rebel yell of Wilson's Fat Amy.
Superpower: Ferocious pipes
Achilles' heels: Cheesecake, burritos, chiseled baritones

Melissa McCarthy, Spy
Plot: CIA analyst Susan (McCarthy) makes her bow in the field, going incognito as a divorced housewife who's more Meow Mix than Mission: Impossible.
Superpower: Cat-lady camouflage
Achilles' heels: Trains, coupes, precarious scooters--all of which turn Susan into federal roadkill
