Although many reviewers have loved this movie and think it is hilarious, I'm not sure I would call this a comedy; more of a Discomforting or a Cringing, with strained laughter at times. It definitely isn't for everyone. The Kristen Wiig of "Bridesmaids" is not the one you will see here. She does a great job of portraying the character, no question; but some people are not going to be amused by this portrayal of mental illness. The supporting cast members all do a good job and actually may provide much of the humor, especially early on when Wiig's character is pitching her show to the TV studio. And if you are offended by full frontal female nudity,this film might not be for you.

Many an SNL alum has walked away with hopes of turning their work on the small screen into big screen careers, but few have done it quite as well as Kristen Wiig in such a short amount of time. Bridesmaids was sort of like her big coming out party, but after refusing a sequel she's embarked on a number of smaller projects that allow her to flex rarely-used dramatic muscles. The Skeleton Twins is an excellent example of what she can do, while others like Hateship Loveship and Girl Most Likely lacked the inventive spark we're used to from her. Rest assured that is not an issue with the Shira Piven's hilariously wacky and touching Welcome to Me, a showcase for what Wiig can do when put front and center.

Unlike some of the larger films she's been a part of recently, Wiig essentially carries Welcome to Me all by herself. That's not to say the supporting cast, which consists of James Marsden, Joan Cusack, Alan Tudyk, Linda Cardellini, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Tim Robbins, are ineffectual it's just a statement on how good Wiig is. She plays Alice Klieg, a lonely recluse who watches old episodes of Oprah on VHS, stays up late watching shows on parakeets, and basically watching too much TV in general. In fact, her television hasn't been off in 11 years. Diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, Alice attends therapy sessions with Dr. Moffat (Tim Robbins), although she's recently decided to quit her meds in favor of a string cheese treatment. She has a best friend in Gina (Cardellini) but little else to her name, it seems. That all changes drastically when she hits the lotto and instantly becomes a mega-millionaire.

people with borderline personality disorder are not easy to deal with. If you have such a person in your life much of this movie will be true to form. It does however have a hollywood ending borderlines don't just come around. It takes years of cognitive therapy. So the movie was one of those ...oh yea that's perfect followed by I don't think so

"This bitch is crazy," you'll think over and over in this movie. I think she is more bipolar and narcissist than borderline. I'm not a psychiatrist, but like to study personality disorders. I enjoyed the movie, I'd give it 3/5 stars. It's worth a watch if you're interested in psychology.

I really loved this movie. Having known people who suffer from the mental issues the main character suffers from I think Kristen nailed the performance. It's not a movie for everybody though so if you watch it and hate it I don't think I'll be able to say anything that makes you agree with me on the fact that it's amazing.

The portrayal I found to be inaccurate and insulting. BPD is now well understood to have clear causes and very good treatment (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). The film did nothing to help shed light on this often mysterious disorder. Tim Robbins gave yet another embarrassing portrayal of a therapist who was incompetent, uninformed, and unethical. Many people with BPD are extremely intelligent, creative, funny, and interesting. Kristin Wiig's character was none of these things. The only character who was funny was Joan Cusak.

She's brilliant. The story's odd. But you can "buy it." Especially if you've worked at a poor/under-performing TV station. I think Kristin Wiig's got a long, LONG movie life ahead of her! LOVE her... Prefer this over Skeleton Twins.

It was interesting, and kept me interested enough to keep watching. It wasn't as funny as I was hoping it would be. The character (played marvelously by Kristen Wiig) was really more weird than funny. But it definitely had at least a few humorous moments.
