Instead, it plays as minutes of quirk, with Wiig stuck in the mediocre middle playing against her strengths. Hit the jump for my Blu-ray review. Like Annie, Imogene is in a shit place both personally and professionally. But while Bridesmaids inflicted Wiig with a hilariously over-the-top asshole boyfriend played by a game Jon Hamm , larger-than-life bridesmaid acquaintances, and a relatable, recession-era unemployment situation her bakery went under , Girl Most Likely merely saddles Imogene with a vaguely asshole-ish boyfriend Brian Petsos , some sort-of bitchy socialite friends, and a nebulously failed playwriting career.

Girl Most Likely - Wikipedia
After her affluent boyfriend leaves her and she is fired from her magazine gig, she stages a suicide attempt in an effort to get her ex's attention and is accidentally discovered by her friend Dara. Held in the hospital on a involuntary psychiatric hold , she is eventually released into her estranged mother's Annette Bening care where she is taken to her childhood home in New Jersey. Shortly after returning she hears a conversation between her mother and her new boyfriend, George Bousche, and learns that her father never died, but instead left the family to pursue a PhD. After learning that her father wrote a book, she goes to the local library and steals it. She discovers from the back cover that he lives in New York City and convinces her mother's boarder, Lee Darren Criss , to take her there, but is forced to return after she is barred access from her apartment and her friend, Dara, refuses to let her stay in her home. To pay Lee back for driving her to the city, Imogene goes to see him perform in his Backstreet Boys tribute band. Afterwards they talk about Imogene's failed career as a playwright.
