For the most part of the time, one does wander that whether it is a movie or a special one-hour sitcom episode that is about to satisfy and clear each and every cliffhangers or lose thread of this hilarious tale. Mistress America works most of the time for its smooth and short runtime along with some of the smartest and newest idea which was to create a sitcom within a feature that is not only driven by raw natured mentality but also by its petty perspectives. Noah pulls it off again with this far fetched and as usual eerie script and maintains his statistics on being at the top when it comes to family drama along with the help of Greta as a writer-actor who surprisingly is flat out funny in each and every scene. Mistress America as said earlier is a two-part episode of a sitcom in which the makers is busy prepping up the characters for the audience in the first act just to explode the can of laughing gas in its second one which along with fast paced, short runtime, amusing but genuine characters and wizened concepts antes up the film than expected.
