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.

Imogene: Uhhm, I grew up in the Atlantic City area, near the beach, so...
Libby: Then every day was like summer, right?
Imogene: No, every day was not like summer; every day was like being impaled with a blunt wooden object, over and over again.

Happily Surprised
28 July 2013 | by (Arizona, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I was excited to see this movie based on the trailer, but I was also worried because I saw initial reviews claiming it wasn't really very funny. There was nothing to worry about.

I know I wasn't alone in that theater in laughing out loud really loudly because it was just that funny! I was one of my favorite movie-going experiences in recent memory because the whole audience was together for the ride and thoroughly enjoying it. For that reason alone, I recommend seeing it in theaters, if possible. If not, do watch it with friends when it's out on video. It was funny even when it was sad and touching. The relationships between all of the characters are interesting and develop throughout the film, and everyone does a splendid job. It left me both happy and contemplative.
