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.

Goofs

When Imogene is at the ER, the psychiatrist threatens to write a 5150 involuntary hold for 72 hours. This legal code is only used in California, not New York. In New York, 9.40 is the legal code that permits an individual to be held involuntarily for up to 72 hours for an emergency/CPEP admission. See more »

Imogene: I'm going to go lay down for two minutes, excuse me.
[Leaves table]
Virginia: It's so sad - how long has she had her drinking problem?
Ralph: Like, two days.

Just an amazingly great surprise!
22 November 2013 | by fossilmailSee all my reviews

Gave the movie a go thinking it would be just something to do before going to bed - well, it was an amazing movie!! Couldn't sleep till the end, and actually in the very end, when you know it is about to finish, I really wanted to see more. More story, more of that crazy quirky life, a really cool, interesting, smart, funny and somewhat deep movie.

The story is really interesting and the cast, well they all play excellent roles where they fit perfectly!

It makes you laugh and even cry, makes you think about life and on the stuff you go through on daily basis. A really feel-good movie.

A really well done flick, not a crap-Hollywood-fill-in-sandwich

Excellent!
