Family Movie Review: Girl Most Likely (PG-13)

GirlMostLikely ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: PG-13        Length: 103 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 13+. Some language, some implied sexual content and sexually themed jokes, and a suicide attempt; the last issue might be the most problematic for young viewers because it’s presented very laughably and perhaps not with the emotional weight it needs. Otherwise, though, this is fairly typical finding-yourself stuff, with all the cursing and romance-themed jokes required.

As evidenced in ‘Bridesmaids,’ Kristen Wiig is generally down for anything writers or directors can throw at her. And although ‘Girl Most Likely’ certainly isn’t a perfect film, it benefits most from her performance, which again conveys a woman caught in the middle of understanding herself.

By Roxana Hadadi

In a summer with only a couple of films particularly targeted to women—including last month’s “The Heat”—”Girl Most Likely,” led by comedienne Kristen Wiig, should attract a particular kind of viewer. But as much as the film is buoyed by a strong performance from Wiig, it suffers because of its other elements: underdeveloped characters, an expected plot, and a disconnected tone that never quite comes together. It’s not as frustrating as “The Heat,” but it’s not immediately memorable, either.
