Consensus: Largely witless and disappointingly dull, Girl Most Likely strands the gifted Kristen Wiig in a blandly hollow foray into scattershot sitcom territory.

Berman and Pulcini -- American Splendor, The Nanny Diaries -- found a tone somewhere between tragedy and nonsense.

Kristen Wiig's comic artistry and its melodramatic tinge are squandered in this frenetic, schematic comedy, which also lays waste to a fertile premise.

This is one of those movies that takes a potentially interesting character and then gives her a one-way ticket to Squaresville.

Nobody in this movie is really appealing enough to be much fun. The state of New Jersey should sue.

"Girl Most Likely" is a strange movie, in that it has the atmosphere of a comedy and some extreme characters set up to be comical, but there are really no funny scenes.

Crushingly unfunny, it's a must to avoid.

I normally like the self growth/self realization type of movie, but there is not much of either in this film.

The film was ok, but it could have been better. It reminded me of the movie, Postcards From the Edge. It needed a rewrite. It goes really good till it hits the… More
