Editorial Reviews

Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Year's News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, she's forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother (Annette Bening and Christopher Fitzgerald). Adding further insult to injury, there's a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom (Darren Criss) and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother's bed (Matt Dillon). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she's ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.

On the surface this is your typical quirky comedy about a dysfunctional family combined with a chick flick. The film opens with a young Imogene (Sydney Lucas) wanting to change the most famous line from "The Wizard of Oz." After all who would want to go to Kansas once you have been in Oz. The film smartly copies the theme and to some extent, the characters of the famous film.

Imogene (Kristen Wiig/Dorothy) is forced to go back home from NYC (Oz) to her family home in Ocean City, N.J. Her mother (Annette Bening/ Glenda) is over the top and lives with a younger man, George the Boushe (Matt Dillon/ Cowardly Lion) who claims he is CIA and has been a Samurai for 25 years, but seems more like a con artist. Her seeming half-wit brother Ralph (Christopher Fitzgerald/ Scarecrow) likes crabs and creates an infinite stream of metaphors about homes and protection. Imogene has discovered her room has been rented out to Lee (Darren Criss/ Tin Man) a man who is deeper than what is seen on the surface.

Imogene's goal is to return to Oz and find the Wizard (Bob Balaban).

This is not a great comedy by any means. It is just a simple heart warming story and chick flick that was smartly written by Michelle Morgan. I loved it, even if no one else did. Good Date night film.

Parental Guide: 1 written F-bomb subscript supposedly spoken in Chinese. No nudity. Implied sex.

What a lovely movie with classic, colorful characters. This is one of those movies that will be enjoyed in the future, right now too many people expect a big comedy, or a laugh-out-loud riot like Bridesmaids, but this is more of an indie comedy/drama with a few laughs, and quirky likability. If you like Little Miss Sunshine or The Way Way Back, you might really enjoy this little gem!

Lovely movie with deep characters, really makes you think. This is not Bridesmaids, do not expect silly jokes and crude laughs

"You spend so long staring at one thing and then one day everything else comes into view and there you are. I'm like a big joke." After her boyfriend breaks up with her and she loses her job Imogene (Wiig) overdoses and tries to kill herself...maybe. The doctors want her to go home to a place where she can be loved and cared for, her mother (Benning). This change does not go as smooth as the doctor expected. While trying to adjust to this drastic change in her life she learns of a family secret that changes everything. There is a saying "you can't judge a book by it's cover", I am coming up with a new saying "you can't judge a movie by it's cast". I was looking forward to this because of Kristin Wiig. There have been many recent movies where actors that are mostly in main stream comedies do more art house type comedy. Tina Fey in Admission, Paul Rudd in Prince Avalanche and now this one with Kristin Wiig. While this is a comedy at its core it does have many dramatic aspects and isn't the type of movie you would expect from Wiig. Not that this isn't good, it just wasn't really what I expected. If you are into laugh-out-loud comedies this isn't one of them. If you are into more off beat movies with a few laughs then this is one for you. Overall, funny but just not what I expected. I give it a B-.

Love subtlety. Not for everyone but my kind of humour. Her juvenile antics were over the top but so are guys in movies. Kristin's facial expressions and reactions are hilarious to me. Writing is great. Casting is excellent. Her mother, brother and the Bouche were great. Loved the ending but I predicted it. Not the exact ending but I knew in general what would be revealed. The brothers story was almost fully developed and the actor made it interesting and heartfelt. I keep thinking of this movie and his exoskeleton!! Haha! My one criticism is the younger man. I understand it showed him still getting his life together but with a fairly level head but sometimes it just seems awkward that he's younger. But that's the point I guess. The whole thing is awkward and I LOVE that, subtlety, awkwardly hilarious, just my type. Acceptance, loving oneself & unconditional family love is pretty cool too.

I originally watched this movie for Darren Criss and thought that he was phenomenal in it. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the movie in general. I normally choose not to watch Kristen Wiig's movies because they tend to be gross but this was actually a pretty clean comedy that I am not embarrassed to watch with my family. Darren was still the best part in my opinion but the movie was still great on its own.

This movie was a different kind of movie for me. I actually enjoyed it. I do like Kristin Wig, I think she is very talented, and to see her in a more serous type role was quiet surprising. If you like Kristin Wig I think you will like this movie. Now what I really like about this movie was Annette Bening's role. I was mesmerized by it. She was fabulous, and I hadn't seen her do anything for a while. Why has this women not yet won an Academy Actress award...We know it's all rigged anyway...If you remember Annette Bening you will love this film....Enjoy

Wonderfully quirky and refreshing.

Imogene is struggling with a break up, losing her job, and the realization she might not have any real friends. After a "suicide" attempt she is forced to stay with her mother for a mandatory 72 hours. During her stay she reconnects with her brother, begins to understand her past, and makes a startling realization about her father.

Girl Most Likely touches on what it's like to have failed, to try, and to succeed. Kristen Wiig's character is a clever representation of the every-girl. Annette Bening, Darren Criss, and Christopher Fitzgerald really make this movie what it is. Exceptional cast and likeable story.
