Her first foray into movies was in 1980's My Bodyguard; a few years later, she co-starred with John in Class. Between 1985 and 1986, she paid her comedy dues and honed her skills on "Saturday Night Live." Soon after, she snagged a few roles in high-profile, Oscar-winning films such as Broadcast News and Working Girl (in which she sported laughably big hair) and reunited with her brother in the smash hit Say Anything.
But it wasn't until she played the clueless fiancée in 1997's In & Out that she finally reached the apex of her career. She has since starred in Toy Story 2, School of Rock and Raising Helen.
