A fresh, silly delight. One of the comedies of the year.

If you've missed the gonzo comedies of the 90s and 00s that barely had a plot and just vibed on their stars' inherent funniness, this is the movie you've been waiting for.

Jamie Dornan in his best role ever.

The chemistry between the actors (it must be said) is contagious.

Kristen Wiig is a quadruple threat here as producer/co-writer/and double-dipped in acting (hero & villain) and continues to be a national treasure.

Wiig and Mumolo delightfully bring their culotte-wearing, Shania Twain-loving duo to life, walking the fine line of them being figures of fun and fun figures with engaging ease.

Its plot has the benign bizarreness of something a shut-in might dream after downing a few mild edibles... The movie works, though, because its beating heart is Barb and Star's friendship chemistry.

Much like the dynamite ladies that Mumolo and Wiig wrote and refreshingly bring to life, Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar is shimmery, vibrant, and as welcoming as a great big hug.

Barb and Star proves that comedy doesn't have to be offensive to make people laugh.

Ultimately a considerable letdown, but staying true to her post-Bridesmaids ways, at least no one can say Wiig didn't succeed in making the film she set out to produce.

It's weird, and deeply silly, but mostly it's...nice.

Its everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach (comedy! drama! action! song and dance! science fiction!) at least raises the likelihood that it will be able to offer something for everyone.

Try as hard as you might you won't be able to keep a straight face through even a minute of this.

You gotta be wrapping up around minute 79 on a film like this, to pull it off.

Delightfully, this isn't a film about two sad middle-aged women getting their groove back, but two happy middle-aged women having a good time stretching beyond their comfort zones.

The movie delivers the same temporary high as a strawberry daiquiri, followed by the low, queasy sensation that sugar and alcohol are teaming up to fog up your frontal lobes.

[I]t's a chance for screenwriters/stars Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig to have fun -- as much as they want and any way they want to.

It's shrill, loud and pretty bonkers... Thankfully, it gets funnier as it gets both ruder and sillier.

I think it is an absolute riot.

A catastrophic comedy that would have been best cut down to a 20-minute sketch show, just so we don't have to sit through the pain of Jamie Dornan's excessive musical numbers for one.
