Girl Most Likely: Not Ready For Primetime

<i>Girl Most Likely</i>: Not Ready For Primetime

After seven seasons on Saturday Night Live, it's understandable that Kristen Wiig would want to move beyond sketch comedy and explore a wider range of roles. In that case, though, why does she spend the entirety of her first post-Bridesmaids star vehicle, Girl Most Likely, acting likes she's still in Studio 8H? Throughout the film, Wiig can be glimpsed mumbling out of the side of her mouth, pulling faces and hauling out that sing-songy "Just kidding" cadence she employed as Judy Grimes -- all tics she developed during her time on SNL. But Wiig's shtick-heavy performance is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the problems afflicting this dire "comedy" about a thirtysomething playwright suffering from a serious case of arrested development. Girl Most Likely has already been sitting around unreleased for almost a year after its debut at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival and leaving it on the shelf indefinitely may have been the kindest thing for all concerned.
