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

Once you get past Imogene's insufferableness, you'll find yourself rooting for her.
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 26, 2013
The rustle of producers' notes and test-screening cards gradually drowns out anything amusing.

The presence of Kristen Wiig helps salvage this lazy femme riff on the slacker comedy.
July 29, 2013
Kristen Wiig's comic artistry and its melodramatic tinge are squandered in this frenetic, schematic comedy, which also lays waste to a fertile premise.

Nobody in this movie is really appealing enough to be much fun. The state of New Jersey should sue.

"Girl Most Likely" is a strange movie, in that it has the atmosphere of a comedy and some extreme characters set up to be comical, but there are really no funny scenes.
July 21, 2013
Wiig didn't write the script for Girl Most Likely, but surely all those years of making tangy lemonade from the SNL writing staff's lemons must have given her the chops to do more than she manages to do here. What a shame.

This one seems a little determined in its quirkiness, assigning its characters one gag apiece.
July 19, 2013
Girl Most Likely is a case of good actors in serious need of worthwhile material.
July 19, 2013
Another movie about a woman falling into a deep funk because some narcissistic twit dumped her.
July 19, 2013
This film suffers, as you can guess from this prcis, from quirky-overload.
July 19, 2013
Wiig finds herself sadly outmatched in this comedy crammed with wacky and tacky characters-types, all of them-in which she's stuck functioning as the uptight, frustrated straight woman in the middle.
July 19, 2013
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 clichd premise.
July 18, 2013
Kristen Wiig delivers another adorkable star turn in 'Girl Most Likely,' which works until it doesn't.
July 18, 2013
It's funny and pleasant and comfy enough. But reach, Kristen, reach.
July 18, 2013
Unfortunately, it's just not funny enough ...

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