Thor may have finished number one at the box office with an estimated $34.5 million in ticket sales, but the real winner is Bridesmaids.

The raunchy R-rated flick -- a sort of Hangover for the femme audience -- took in $24.6 million, well above expectations.

Kristen Wiig co-wrote and stars in the comedy, along with fellow SNL-er Maya Rudolph plus Rose Byrne, Terry Crews and Jessica St. Clair.

Bridesmaids was also the final film for the great Jill Clayburgh, which is reason enough to see it. 

Clayburgh, who died last November after a valiant battle against cancer, has a small role as Wiig's mother.
