Storyline

Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Year's News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, she's forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother (Annette Bening and Christopher Fitzgerald). Adding further insult to injury, there's a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom (Darren Criss) and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother's bed (Matt Dillon). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she's ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.

Trivia

Writer Michelle Morgan titled the screenplay "Imogene", the name of the lead character played by Kristen Wiig. It is a name she says she's loved since Imogene Coca, who she saw in Vacation (1983). See more »

Goofs

When Imogene is at the ER, the psychiatrist threatens to write a 5150 involuntary hold for 72 hours. This legal code is only used in California, not New York. In New York, 9.40 is the legal code that permits an individual to be held involuntarily for up to 72 hours for an emergency/CPEP admission. See more »

Quotes

Libby: What about your family?
Imogene: Uhhm, I grew up in the Atlantic City area, near the beach, so...
Libby: Then every day was like summer, right?
Imogene: No, every day was not like summer; every day was like being impaled with a blunt wooden object, over and over again.
Libby: Anyway...

Good cast but could have been funnier
11 August 2015 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

This movie has some good bones but what's in between isn't that great. The dialog and situations could have been funnier. A Manhattan writer gets laid off and has to go back home to New Jersey for a while.

The cast is funny and likable especially the supporting cast. Annette Benning does well as the mother with impulse control problems. Matt Dillon is always a great comedic actor and he plays Annette's boyfriend. Kristin Wiig is good but her character she plays isn't terribly sympathetic or lovable. Darren Criss of Glee plays a lodger in Annette's Ocean City home and sings a bit.

The contrast of the culture difference between arty Manhattan and Ocean City NJ is funny and could have been played up more.

Overall worth one watch for the cast but it is a little lacking in laughs.
