So, I’m guessing Maya Rudolph was too busy for this? It seems like it would have been the obvious choice to have her partner with Wiig.

I feel like I’m missing something with that trailer. Like there’s an inside joke between these two actresses that we’re not in on.

Wow. That was an annoying trailer.

I'll probably watch it eventually anyway, I love dumb comedies.

That looks so stupid...and yet I embarrassingly admit to chuckling a couple times during that trailer (the name “Starbara” and the room number joke at the end both got a smile from me).

Unfortunately, those characters look so annoying, I’m not sure I can take them for longer than the 1 1/2 minute trailer.

I wonder if this is going to end up with a Napolean Dynamite type following - Very specific humor aimed at a select group of people. You’ll either love it or absolutely hate it.

It only has 50 votes on the audience side, tough to tell.

Really goofy, but I laughed out loud several times. It’s “Spring Breakdown” meets “Austin Powers”. Fun film if you have some time to kill. I’d give it maybe a 7/10 rating.

Yeah this was pretty enjoyable, it is super silly and basically a spinster riff on Austin Powers. I laughed that Wiig's version of Dr Evil is basically Cate Blanchett with killer mosquitos (this is covered in the first few minutes)

It's now at 94%, who knows what is actually right.

I actually thought it was Cate Blanchett for the first 5 minutes.
