Thanks for a nice movie to watch on a rainy day.
Neo, the renaissance man
The supporting roles from Annette Bening, Matt Dillon et al were all good.
Eric Sanberg
Getting beyond that, the movie isn't funny...really it's just sad.

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!

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.

"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-.

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

This movie was surprisingly well done. The characters were realistically quirky and the acting/directing was very good. Even though the general story line is nothing new, it had plenty of unpredictable details. Lot's of tongue-in-cheek, dark or sarcastic humor. Very good for what was probably a low-budget movie.

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
