Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, once a promising young New York playwright whose promise has fizzled, thanks to a crisis of confidence. Heavily in denial about being dumped by her society boyfriend, Imogene uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate fake suicide as an appeal for his sympathy.

This is a good, fun film, with a lot of heart (and a terrible title). I'm surprised at the negative reviews here and elsewhere, perhaps not what people were expecting from Kristen Wiig. It's a comedy, but a fairly quirky one, and has sad and poignant moments mixed in with the more humorous ones.

Imogene, played by Kristen Wiig (who does a great job) suffers a couple of serious mishaps at the beginning of the film, that force her to leave New York and move back in with her mother in Ocean City, NJ. The rest of the film follows her over a couple of weeks coming to terms with her life, in a journey into self-awareness. Annette Bening is wonderful as her kooky mother, the rest of the supporting cast also do a terrific job. Some of Imogene's New York friends veer a little into caricature in their wickedness, but not so much that it took away from the consistency and plausibility of the story as a whole.

If you're looking for something fairly light, but with an intelligent script and some good humour, then I'd definitely recommend this. 7 out of 10.

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 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.

Thirtysomething modern-day New York lady Imogene Duncan (Kristen Wiig) seems to have the lot - a well-to-do boyfriend who once stated they were Soul Mates (he'd say it again if only if he could stay off his mobile long enough to remember), an apartment in the right address with a unformed doorman (none of your riff raff here), society friends who wear Jimmy Choos and sip cocktails (their spitefulness makes the real housewives of Beverley Hills look positively saintly) and even a possible writing career outside of the magazine she works for (if she could only get that play she was supposed to write 8 years back down on paper). What could possibly go wrong? Well, try everything...

And then the nasty stuff really hits the fan when brash Zelda her bed-hopping gambling-addicted mother shows up from New Jersey in a stolen car...on loan from her new younger boyfriend who goes under the pseudonym George Bousche and claims to be an undercover CIA agent with possible Samurai consciousness tie-ins (hilarious turns by Annette Bening and Matt Dillon). Imogene rapidly loses her boyfriend, her job, her apartment and her fair-weather socialite pals - eventually ending up back in Ocean City in rental Hell in her "Friends" teeshirt instead of snazzy clothes.

Only now her old room has been let out by gambler Mom to a complete stranger who doesn't change the sheets that often (a handsome turn by Darren Criss) and Imogene has also to live and deal with Ralph - her younger brother who won't go any further than the boardwalk and whose fixated on crabs and the invention of a human shield like the outer crusts of molluscs (a part that could so easily have been awful superlatively played by Christopher Fitzgerald). Then it gets worse.

'Girl Most Likely' is a quirky film that will probably see more hits on DVD than in the theatre. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the film. Kristin Wigg plays Imogene, a young woman who received an award as one of the best potential playwrights, and now has lost the buzz. She has a handsome boyfriend who does not seem as interested in her as she is in him. She has found the society life, but does not seem to be a good fit.

When one thing leads to another, she finds herself back in Ocean City, NJ, in the home of her mother, whom she has not seen for years. Zelda, mom, is wonderfully played by Annette Bening. Hers is probably the best acted part of the film. A kooky lady who likes to gamble. She lives with an alleged CIA agent named George Bousche, played by Matt Dillon. Imogene finds her old room has been rented out to a young man, Lee, played by Darren Criss. Her brother, Ralph, played by Christopher Fitzgerald, is a nice young man with some sort of disability. Trying to find her bearings, Imogene needs to decide what she really wants in life. Can she revive her career? Can she live with her family in the homemade sheet bed in the living room? Some laughs, some great acting by Annette Bening and the film does try to stay on track. Not sure what the goal was, but an enjoyable film.
