    I don't understand why this movie received such mixed reviews. 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.

    You might have high expectations for this film, since Kristen Wiig is the star. 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. Collapse

    Occasionally, the cast rises above the material.

    Odd zingers and residual eccentricities (a Whit Stillman cameo, anyone?) stand as traces of the blast it might have been, but this cast surely signed on in anticipation of many more laughs than there are in the final cut.

    A thin soup of weak jokes and contrived drama.
