Review

Our Score
In her smash hit Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig was fearless in her quest for laughs, often making herself the butt of the jokes. She's playing the loser again here, as a struggling writer who's forced to move back home to live with her batty mum (Annette Bening) and her lover (Matt Dillon), an eccentric brother (Christopher Fitzgerald) and the lodger who's taken over her bedroom (Darren Criss). Wiig is an inherently likeable actress, and co-directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor) allow her some funny moments, but her character is weighed down with too many selfish neuroses, while her dalliance with the free-spirited house guest just doesn't ring true. Bening and Dillon are wickedly funny, but these are roles they could do in their sleep. Ultimately, this is a comedy that shows a lot of early promise but fails to deliver.

Summary

A successful New York playwright's career ends in a series of disasters culminating in a fake suicide. She is forced to return to her home town, moving back in with her eccentric mother and trying to reconnect with her family - only to find there have been some changes while she was away. Comedy, starring Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening and Matt Dillon.
