Storyline

Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Year's News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, she's forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother (Annette Bening and Christopher Fitzgerald). Adding further insult to injury, there's a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom (Darren Criss) and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother's bed (Matt Dillon). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she's ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.

Great cast and funny ladies
16 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Other than "The Heat," there haven't been that many movies this summer that are actually about women. Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening are at the top of their came in this movie, and it's such a pleasure to just watch funny ladies being funny.

It's one of those movies about a quirky family, but with enough fresh elements to make it work. The best thing about the film is the top-notch cast. Darren Criss is utterly charming in his first big-screen role, which is no small task considering that his character works as a Backstreet Boy impersonator. This guy is obviously going places.

It's definitely worth checking out, on DVD if you can't find it in a theater.
