Crushingly unfunny, it's a must to avoid.

A lot more entertaining than the majority of its critical raspberries would suggest.

Berman and Pulcini -- American Splendor, The Nanny Diaries -- found a tone somewhere between tragedy and nonsense.

What a disappointment.

All in all, this is an extremely forgettable film that will more than likely drift from your memory as you're watching it. Then again, what would you expect from trying to build a film out of clichés and nonsensical pieces?

Even if you added a laugh track the tone is glum.

A perfectly gauged performance by Wiig holds this ramshackle comedy-drama together, as she plays a woman forced to confront everything she has always hated about herself.

There are moments to make you honestly wish it were a better movie, and that the semi-autobiographical screenplay by Michelle Morgan didn't feel so much like a first draft.

Once you get past Imogene's insufferableness, you'll find yourself rooting for her.

Incidental at best, and a touch irksome at worst.

The 'exoskeleton' subplot is as clunky a metaphorical experience as you will ever endure.

Ultimately, this is a comedy that shows a lot of early promise but fails to deliver.

The twinned themes of self-invention and self-loathing are redolent of Rushmore, Flirting With Disaster and Young Adult but Imogene's brand of narcissism has its own velocity.

There's an over-reliance on Wiig's gift for ditzy, put-upon characters, although her charm wears thin, while the script veers between sit-com humour and pathos.
Mike McCahill

The rustle of producers' notes and test-screening cards gradually drowns out anything amusing.

Much of this could be forgiven if you had even the remotest shred of sympathy for Imogene. But from beginning to end, she's the sort of character you should cross the cinema foyer to avoid.

The presence of Kristen Wiig helps salvage this lazy femme riff on the slacker comedy.

A watchable comedy enlivened by strong comic performances and likeable, offbeat characters, though Girl Most Likely settles for rough edges and quirky moments ...

Even though this comedy has a tendency to dip into cartoonish silliness, it's anchored by a razor-sharp performance by Wiig as a woman forced to confront everything she hates about herself.
