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.

Don't Miss It - Quite the Surprise!
5 January 2014 | by (Boca Raton, Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

After watching this film, my girlfriend said, "ya know, thebest way to enjoy a movie is to go into it with no expectations.

Well, that's how we viewed this. It was a late rental, from a kiosk, and we picked it based on the box figuring it would be "something light and fun" because it had Kristen Wig. Oddly, it got too late to watch anything until the next day, and boy I'm glad we waited.

Much of the description is in the synopsis of this film. I call it a "film" because it is just that - it's not your typical Hollywood comedy of breakup, or heartache, or going for cheap laughs. Nor is it a tug on your heartstrings predictable drama. Instead this film has the perfect mix, and warm story of an independent film, with some, but not too many quirky family relationships, and real, flawed love story, with family, friendships...some hope, some heartache.

I'm used to seeing Kristin Wig in silly comedic roles - in this, Wig, Benning, Matt Dylan, et. al are all outstanding...just watch it. Warm, warm film.
