Girl Most Likely - Movie Review

Girl Most Likely (PG-13) 103 minutes C-

Starring: Kristin Wiig, Annette Bening, Darren Criss and Matt Dillon

Kristin Wiig is always worth watching, but unfortunately Girl Most Likely is light weight and forgettable.  It's a horrible film, but wait for it to arrive on cable and watch it on one of those lazy days with a big bowl of buttery popcorn and a carbonated beverage.
Bonus Rental Review
Hello I Must Be Going (R) 95 minutes B+
Melanie Lynskey, Melanie Lynskey, Melanie Lynskey

Home Release Date: January 2013
Starring:  Melanie Lynskey, Blythe Danner, Christopher Abbott, John Rubinstein, Dan Futterman and Julie White       

So, let me name a few things about this film that I liked other than the film itself: Melanie Lynskey,  Melanie Lynskey, Melanie Lynskey.  Additionally, I've always thought Todd Louiso (the film's director) was a funny guy... and probably a really cool guy in "real life."  Christopher Abbott, best known as "Charlie" from the phenomenal HBO series Girls.  He's does a great job at playing a peculiar 19 year-old.  And lastly, the soundtrack, which is playful and catchy.  

The film itself is smart, funny and intriguing.  A freshly divorced 35 year-old woman becomes intimately involved with a 19 year-old manchild.  What ensues is highly worth watching.  If you've never heard of this film and you like bittersweet rom-coms, seek it out.
