More Info:
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    For all the well-traveled roads in Girl Most Likely, Berman and Pulcini bring a sweetness to the material that suits Wiig’s offbeat talents. We know we’re being played, but really, if we’re enjoying it, why complain?

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Whether Girl Most Likely intentionally satirizes its upending of conventions or suffers from a half-assed screenplay, the resulting hodgepodge at least livens up a clichéd premise.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    A likable but warmed-over comedy.

    NPR Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Occasionally, the cast rises above the material.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    A strange movie, in that it has the atmosphere of a comedy and some extreme characters set up to be comical, but there are really no funny scenes.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The whole enterprise comes across like a first draft.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    A picaresque romance of self-discovery that delivers a near-constant flow of small delights until veering too far into screwball preposterousness.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Bening and Dillon both play roles they could act in their sleep, though it's still moderately fun to watch them do so.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    It works here and there. And then it doesn't.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The movie does miraculously end up making good use of a couple of running jokes, and the cast soldiers on, though the laughs are meager. But mostly, Girl Most Likely is a case of good actors in serious need of worthwhile material.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Girl Most Likely goes a little bit wrong in nearly every scene, its stridently quirky characters never quite making sense together in the same universe, let alone the same movie.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Whatever their other gifts, they cannot find the fizz here and can never get Wiig to commit to the sort of film that she, even when she was making it, must have realized was beneath her in her post-”Bridesmaids” glory.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Simon Abrams

    Wiig really shines in the film, proving that her finely honed comic timing can make a character work even when the film ultimately doesn't.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The blame belongs most plainly with Michelle Morgan’s script, which requires this gifted comedian to play straight woman to a supporting carnival of Indiewood types.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    Odd zingers and residual eccentricities (a Whit Stillman cameo, anyone?) stand as traces of the blast it might have been, but this cast surely signed on in anticipation of many more laughs than there are in the final cut.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    A thin soup of weak jokes and contrived drama.

    Empire Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Can’t decide if it’s a broad farce or a poignant portrait. Small wonder then, that it falls short on both counts, failing to earn either Bridesmaids-sized laughs or nods of recognition.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Glenn Whipp

    A tonal jumble, veering between forced farce and tired, rom-com beats, with little feeling real or true.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    A forced, laugh-challenged comedy with an appealing if not terribly well-used cast.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Tiny and well-intentioned but dramatically inert and sham-kooky, Girl Most Likely is for Kristen Wiig completists only, and even they may squirm at spending a whole movie waiting for her character to pull her head out of her ass.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Sam Adams

    The keenest irony is that Imogene’s fake suicide note is the most convincing thing she’s ever written — which makes perverse sense since Girl Most Likely is DOA.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    The insurmountable problem is that Imogene is not a very original, dynamic or charismatic character, and Kristen Wiig is not a very original, dynamic or charismatic actress. Nobody in this movie is really appealing enough to be much fun. The state of New Jersey should sue.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    One doesn’t really want to beat up on Girl Most Likely, because it means well and everyone in it appears to be having a good time. But so many things are wrong with the film, from a script that’s bright but never sharp to the editing that leaves scenes hanging flaccidly in the breeze.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    The desperate straining for laughs isn't nearly so off-putting as the abrupt tonal shift Girl Most Likely makes as it trudges toward its conclusion. Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    A forgettable movie with a forgettable title about forgettable characters I’d just as soon as forget.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    A failure from start to finish.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Hollow, uninteresting and false. Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Wiig’s new comedy sulks limply along with her, unable to bring the kind of energy that might complement her tendency to underplay every scene.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    I only laughed once, and it was when Whit Stillman made a cameo to be snubbed by the newly self-actualized Imogene. But it was mostly in disbelief; pretentious or not, Stillman represents a caliber of smart writing that’s wholly absent from Girl Most Likely.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    If the first 90 minutes of Girl Most Likely grate and disappoint, wait until the final 10 or so, when directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini try covering their maniacally depressive tracks like cats in a litter box.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Bening and Dillon are equally misused, and the rest of the cast is frankly just annoying. Like Imogene’s early promise, Girl Most Likely is likely to be forgotten quickly. The sooner the better.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Girl Most Likely strands Kristen Wiig in a dreadful, disingenuous city-vs.-suburbs comedy that mercilessly mocks New Jersey before turning around and celebrating its provincial trashiness over the hoity-toity snootiness of Manhattan.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Calum Marsh

    Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini's dismal, D-grade sitcom isn't fit to lick the boots of Whit Stillman's four films.
