Welcome to Me (2015, d: Shira Piven, s: Wiig, Marsden, Cardellini, Robbings, Tudyk)

This one looks and sounds bizarre. Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, it's one of those "Same Time As Theaters" limited releases and will be availble via On Demand / Digital starting May 8th.

Rated R
105 Minutes
Directed by: Shira Piven
Written By: Eliot Laurence
Starring: Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Linda Cardellini, Wes Benley, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Alan Tudyk, Tim Robbings, Joan Cusack, and Loretta Devine

Synopsis: A woman with borderline personality disorder wins the lottery and decides to spend the cash on her own cable access talk show, where her larger-than-life personality and obsession with being famous begins to alienate her friends and family.

Currently at 82% with 11 reviews on rottentomatoes.com. I like Wiig in general and loved The Skeleton Twins so I'll give this a shot, though her indie before that (Girl Most Likely) was awful.

Wiig gets naked in this (full frontal), so there's that.

I didn't think it was particularly funny and was a little tough to watch, but it wasn't bad. Wiig nails the role and yes, full frontal with bush.

She seemed like a bush kind of girl.

Thanks for posting the link to the Roeper review. I love Kristen Wiig, and will definitely be checking out this performance based on her and Roeper's glowing review.
