A girl has lost her way and comes back home with quirky comedy
“Girl Most Likely” is Imogene (Kristen Wiig); a girl once likely to become the next big playwright in New York City, now she’s desperately hanging on to the upper-class lifestyle convinced that it’s all about who you know, where you live, and who you are with. A failed attempt of a fake suicide attempt sends Imogene back where she came from. All the way to New Jersey.
It’s an indie film with a fairly minimal distribution, which generally means the film is going to try to survive on quirky comedy. Luckily, Wiig has had a decade’s worth of experience doing quirky comedy on “Saturday Night Live”. Also, luckily the film is more than just a quirky indie comedy. It’s very much a character study, and a bit of a quarter- life crisis dramedy thrown in for good measure. Imogene doesn’t know herself very well. She once knew she was a good writer, now she just thinks she’s a good writer. She once knew she was better than the family she came from, now she just thinks she’s better. She also thinks her life will be better if she gets to know her great and successful father whom she doesn’t know.
Her home life features comedy from her weird and bizarre mother, Zelda, her weirder and more bizarre new-step-father-like figure, George, and her weird but well-intentioned younger brother, Ralph. There’s also a strange man sleeping in her bed.
This strange man is Lee (Darren Criss), who is actually not strange at all. He is a young man mired in a quarter-life crisis who has rented out her room as a place to stay. He represents the romantic angle of Imogene’s attempt to get her life back on track, and was actually a very welcome addition to the movie. Lee was much more sane, understanding, and more aware of his place in life than any of the characters. He was exactly the type of guy who could keep Imogene more grounded with her distorted life views.
The comedy is sweet, although at times it can become to quirky to be all that funny. The writing is good, even though at times it can be a little too self-aware to be all the great. But “Girl Most Likely” is a fairly enjoyable journey of a girl who has completely lost her way in life. It focuses on family, ambition and ties it all up with quirky comedy.
don’t let crappy reviews make you miss it
I’ve never reviewed a movie here before, but I’m doing it because most of what I’ve seen online and in my local paper were at best tepid, if not downright negative. Frankly, it is a much better comedy of manners than “Bridesmaids” was– that one relied far too heavily on the Judd Apatow gross-out factor. (As if proving that women could be as stupid as men is some kind of feminist triumph.) Wiig’s skill– and the terrific Annette Bening’s, as well– is to tread the fine line between comic sketch exaggeration and the rueful comedy in the human condition. One of the better comedies I’ve seen in awhile, and deserves spreading the good word.
