(2021) (Kristen Wiig, Annie Mumolo) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: After losing their jobs, two best friends vacation on the Florida coast only to run afoul of a villain and her henchman who are eager to destroy the seaside town.
After losing their jobs due to their furniture store closing, close friends and coworkers Barb (ANNIE MUMOLO) and Star (KRISTEN WIIG) decide they can't let the best parts of their lives be behind them and thus follow a friend's glowing advice to visit Vista Del Mar on Florida's Gulf coast. Lucking into a room at a nice hotel, they enjoy all the trappings that they intend to experience together. Unbeknownst to them, however, uber-villain Sharon Gordon Fisherman (KRISTEN WIIG) has a grudge against that coastal town stemming from her childhood.
With her child henchman Yoyo (REYN DOI) by her side and would-be lover/henchman Edgar Paget (JAMIE DORNAN) now positioned at that same hotel, Sharon plans to unleash a swarm of deadly, genetically modified mosquitoes onto Vista Del Mar and kill everyone there. But the villain doesn't anticipate Edgar -- pining about his unrequited love for Sharon -- ending up falling for Star and vice-versa, or the two women finding their friendship put to the test regarding that unexpected relationship. With Sharon still intent on executing her plan, Barb and Star must work through their differences to save the day.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're fans of Wiig, anyone else in the cast, or goofy/silly comedies, they just might.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For crude sexual content, drug use, and some strong language.
