Girl Most Likely: Half a Laugh

Imogene was a promising young playwright living in Manhattan with her boyfriend, but something happened on the way to success and happiness. The next thing you know, she's back home in tacky Ocean City, N.J., living with her flacky mother (Annette Bening) and Mom's younger, nuttier boyfriend (Matt Dillon.)

It's a bigtime comedown for Imogene, and, if you agree with many critics, for the actress who plays her, Kristen Wiig.

While Bening and Dillon add much to this comedy lite with sentimental undertones, Wiig holds her own. And if you're looking for a sweet flick with sporadic laughs, do go see this one.
