    For all the well-traveled roads in Girl Most Likely, Berman and Pulcini bring a sweetness to the material that suits Wiig’s offbeat talents. We know we’re being played, but really, if we’re enjoying it, why complain?

    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.

    A likable but warmed-over comedy.

I thought it was very entertaining, and the performances are all excellent. Maybe some folks don't get Kristen Wiig's type of humor, but I think she is very funny. She does a lot with just a look. Annette Being is particularly good in this movie. If you like Kristen Wiig, give it a shot. Full Review »

But if you think of her as just another actor, you'll end up being pleasantly entertained. She underplays her usual oddball as a New Yorker struggling with her career, boyfriend and life in general. After an unfortunate incident she ends up back at home in NJ with her mother (Annette Bening is a delightful turn). The film tries too hard to be one of those quirky character charmers, but it sometimes succeeds, although predictably. It's not hilarious, but sweetly amusing. Full Review »

    "Girl Most Likely" 10 Scale Rating: 6.0 (Decent) ...

    The Good: Just quirky enough to be entertaining. Kristen Wiig is hit and miss for me, but she was very good in this ... once you get past the first 15 minutes or so. A solid story that was far more entertaining than expected for the first three quarters of the film.

    The Bad: It falls apart in the end. I thought the film was pretty good right up until then but the final act is just too silly for words and doesn't fit in with the rest of the film. She rebounds nicely, but Wiig is downright unlikeable early on.
