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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Feeling somewhat similar to the likes of Frances Ha, in that it's a self-discovery tale of a woman finding herself, this does just lack that bit of class required to completely pull it off.

Girl Most Likely is occasionally funny but it's a more formulaic film than you might expect from former documentarians.

An odd, slightly off movie that's bound to be mistaken for a bad one, Girl Most Likely is a showcase for the superb comic talents of Kristen Wiig.

Solid performances by its talented cast barely compensate for the lack of depth in the toothless, overly simplistic screenplay.

Whether "Girl Most Likely" intentionally satirizes its upending of conventions or suffers from a half-assed screenplay, the resulting hodgepodge at least livens up a clichéd premise.

It's funny and pleasant and comfy enough. But reach, Kristen, reach.

There is a trick to playing downtrodden, borderline-pathetic characters without putting off the audience. Kristen Wiig has mastered it.

It's impossible to predict what will happen next in "Girl Most Likely." But you do become confident that whatever happens will be loopy, good-natured fun.

As a pleasant couple of hours at the movies, it'll more than do.

Imogene does not set out to be anything important, but it delivers some genuinely hilarious performances from every single one of the lead performances.

Crushingly unfunny, it's a must to avoid.
