In honor of Rebecca (Rachel Dratch)'s 50th birthday, Abby (Amy Poehler) plans a scenic Napa getaway with their best, longtime friends. Workaholic Catherine (Ana Gasteyer), post-op Val (Paula Pell), homebody Jenny (Emily Spivey), and weary mom Naomi (Maya Rudolph) are equally sold on the chance to relax and reconnect. Yet as the alcohol flows, real world uncertainties intrude on the punchlines and gossip, and the women begin questioning their friendships and futures. A hilarious and heartfelt comedy directed by Poehler, Wine Country co-stars Tina Fey, Jason Schwartzman and Cherry Jones.
Friendship is a Trip
Did You Know?
Rachel Dratch actually hired a local chef, Gerard Nebesky, to cook paella for her and her SNL buddies during their real-life wine country celebration of her 50th birthday. Her actual birthday trip took place in Sonoma County, not Napa Valley where the movie takes place. See more
The characters say multiple times that Rebecca's birthday is on a Sunday; however, while they are in the ER they are able to call Naomi's doctor's office to ask about her test results. It is unlikely that a GP's office would be open on a Sunday. See more
The wifi here is very slow, so you're just going to have to talk to each other... while drinking a ton of wine! What could possibly go wrong? Just remember guys, whatever gets said, is probably what the person has always felt, and the alcohol just let it out.
