I’ve been trying to broaden my film library over the last few months…because I haven’t seen most famous films. TV shows probably, films not so much.
Girl Most Likely follows the life of Imogene, a failed playwright in New York who is dumped by her fiancé and later loses her job. Leading to her faking a suicide in hopes that her fiancé will return to her. Instead she is forced to return to home to New Jersey and live with her dysfunctional family – a gambling addict mother who is dating a younger guy claiming to be a CIA agent, her younger brother who is sweet but reclusive and lodger Lee a Yale graduate who is in a Backstreet Boys tribute band.
Having watched Bridesmaids and Whip It with Kristen in I expected it to be very comical, especially as it’s listed as a comedy. While I didn’t find it extremely funny, the drama was interesting. It had a very quirky independent feel to it, instead of the usual Hollywood-esque rom-coms. Did love the 90s tribute artists, being a 90s kid. Even watching the start of Glee I always knew Darren had a good voice, it was nice to see that he wasn’t just playing Blaine. Although the part where his and Wiig’s character hook up sort of has a cougar feel to it. I wouldn’t say it was an amazing, must watch film. It was nice to wind down to on a Sunday night.
