Girl Most Likely Reviews

Cory Everett
The Playlist

The desire to escape your hometown and reshape your identity is potentially rich territory to explore but the script by Michelle Morgan looks only to mine from the surface so you end up with trite lessons about how there's no place like home.

Ocean City, the New Jersey town battered by Hurricane Sandy, certainly didn't need the drab, unfunny "Girl Most Likely" invading its shores.

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

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?

Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini's dismal, D-grade sitcom isn't fit to lick the boots of Whit Stillman's four films.

Girl Most Likely builds to a climax of such monumental stupidity that it destroys whatever slim pretense of realism the film has heretofore established.

Expectations are high for the film, Wiig, and directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (of the innovative American Splendor) -- and the result, disappointing.

Bening flaps her arms like a baby bird and Dillon takes his There's Something About Mary sleaze down off the shelf, but their game supporting performances can't prop up screenwriter Michelle Morgan's prefab-to-a-fault script.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Girl Most Likely is the kind of film where awkward retro names abound and a character walks around in a wetsuit because he's been hit by lightning so many times. It's all so wacky it must be funny, right? Hardly.

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

[Wiig] might want to consider whether she really wants to get stuck unto eternity playing women on the verge.

The kind of movie destined to become the answer to the rhetorical question, "With a cast this good, how bad can it be?"

One of those films that awkwardly tries to find itself -- its tone, its narrative core, its sense of timing and pacing -- but sadly never does.

It is a deeply confused picture, and as a result, it's very hard to invest in to any real extent.

If you're expecting "Bridesmaids" style humor, don't. Wiig and company are dull and clueless.

Directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini have made a career focusing on lovable oddballs, but their new film lacks the satiric sharpness of the duo's best work.

The screenplay is the biggest problem here, riddled with unconvincing details and widely vacillating between disparate tones.

I went in search of Ocean City, and all I got was this stinking movie.
