Movie Reviews

  • wacky, tacky and weirdly delightful; the visual jokes are dense and the look works for the setting and comedic ethos, reflecting the junky tourist-trap aesthetic that Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig celebrate
    by Katie Walsh [Los Angeles Times ]
  • Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo reteam to write and star in this deliciously weird ode to friendship, culottes and sunny Florida vacations; Wiig and Mumolo cracked themselves up while writing it, and that laughter handily crosses over to the screen
    Review rate : B by Adam Graham [The Detroit News ]
  • it's hard to deny that "Barb and Star" plays like an infectious inside joke; "Barb and Star" is such a giddy outlier, a dense, flawed assemblage of zany humor that people will happily tear into for years to come
    Review rate : B- by Kate Erbland [IndieWire ]
  • it just feels like a rambling mess, watching "Barb and Star" is like talking to your best friend's mom for two hours straight; you adore her but sometimes you just need her to stop talking because nothing coming out of her mouth is funny or engaging
    2 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
  • however, in its efforts to be dizzying, delightful, escapist fun, "Barb and Star" gets lost in its own self-indulgence
    1.5 of 4 by Allyson Johnson [Boston Globe ]
  • from a bizarre villain to unexpected musical numbers, "Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar" is egregiously bad, but with splashes of occasional humor
    2 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
  • Barb and Star's oddball palavering has its charms thanks to Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo's natural rapport; "Barb and Star" offers a mixed bag of laughs; I can't help but admire its commitment to the act, and its gloriously unhinged absurdity
    by Beatrice Loayza [New York Times ]
  • an enjoyably bonkers; there's plenty of heart and infectious spirit, thanks largely to the daffy chemistry of Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a triumph of comedic idiosyncrasy at a dire time for the genre; This female buddy comedy starring Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo is a silly delight from start to finish
    5 of 5 by Charles Bramesco [Little White Lies ]
  • a kooky, imperfect delight; like some of the old-timey genre classics it recalls, "Barb and Star" commits to its deep silliness so sweetly and completely that you can't help falling a little bit in love with them too
    Review rate : B by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • a goofy "Bridesmaids" reunion; Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo reteam for a likable but throwaway comedy about two best friends going on vacation; If "Bridesmaids" was a wedding you'll never forget then "Barb and Star" is a holiday you'll barely remember
    3 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • a giddy, glorious joy; Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo created Barb and Star years ago and seem genuinely excited to finally be sharing these characters with the world. And there's no room for snobbery at their joyful jamboree
    4 of 5 by Charlotte O'Sullivan [London Evening Standard ]
  • a deliriously weird comedy; a movie so mad and marvelous it feels like a miracle; Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig prove masters of blending silliness with randomly raunchy jokes and the sublimely absurd to create a movie that is a non-stop laugh riot
    4.5 of 5 by Kristy Puchko [IGN Movies ]
  • "Barb and Star" is packed with giddy, giggle-worthy gags; A very different take on female friendship than "Bridesmaids", this has future cult favourite written all over it. As bright and breezy as a pair of pastel culottes
    4 of 5 by Ben Travis [Empire Magazine ]
