Falls flat on almost all counts, its one saving grace being Wiig herself -- an actress who appreciates the beauty of subtlety, and just about saves her latest movie from complete disaster.
November 29, 2017
It's a balance that mostly works, though a final twist at the end introduces an odd tension that, while wacky, makes the film's climax feel somewhat uneven.
July 13, 2017
This is one of those movies that takes a potentially interesting character and then gives her a one-way ticket to Squaresville.
January 9, 2017
Even great performances can't completely overshadow the film's formulaic nature.
May 5, 2015
Crushingly unfunny, it's a must to avoid.
June 27, 2014
A lot more entertaining than the majority of its critical raspberries would suggest.
January 6, 2014
Berman and Pulcini -- American Splendor, The Nanny Diaries -- found a tone somewhere between tragedy and nonsense.
December 17, 2013
What a disappointment.
November 4, 2013
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 clichs and nonsensical pieces?
October 11, 2013
Even if you added a laugh track the tone is glum.
October 4, 2013
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.
October 4, 2013
Sometimes dysfunction just doesn't work.
October 4, 2013
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.
October 3, 2013
Once you get past Imogene's insufferableness, you'll find yourself rooting for her.
September 29, 2013
Incidental at best, and a touch irksome at worst.
September 27, 2013
The 'exoskeleton' subplot is as clunky a metaphorical experience as you will ever endure.
September 27, 2013
Ultimately, this is a comedy that shows a lot of early promise but fails to deliver.
September 27, 2013
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.
September 27, 2013
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.
September 26, 2013
The rustle of producers' notes and test-screening cards gradually drowns out anything amusing.
