Imagine putting the great Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo in a room together with a blank pad of paper and a couple of pens… Barb and Star is exactly what you could see emerging a few days later. Occasionally looney and often silly but rarely not funny, it’s a hilarious little trip that channels everything from Austin Powers to Bridesmaids. It may take you being under the influence of a spritzer or two to really appreciate it, but it’s a pleasant goofball of a matinee comedy.

3.5/5 stars
