Imogene is 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. Adding further insult to injury, there's a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother's bed. 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.
Comedy - Unlike Kristen Wiig's last lead showcase, Bridesmaids, this
isn't an out-and-out wacky comedy but one with a bit more of a
dramatic edge. Fans of her should be pleased with the unusual
showcase though fans of other co-stars such as Matt Dillon may be
disappointed by limited screen time. Language, suggestive content,
and adult subject matter make the film not for kids.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word; 12 S-words; very few others. SEX/NUDITY: Mild sensuality without nudity. VIOLENCE: A grab. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Banter and wisecracks, sometimes suggestive.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average This development is also supposed to be funny, and poignant, but never succeeds either way.
Washington PostFull Review Average 'Girl Most Likely,' a picaresque romance of self-discovery that delivers a near-constant flow of small delights until veering too far into screwball preposterousness.
NY PostFull Review Poor This lazy comedy plays like a round of Quirky Indie Mad Libs...
