Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar

Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar

Catch a wave to see the latest audaciously absurdist, laugh-out-loud comedy, Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, from the makers of Bridesmaids.

Following the losses of both their jobs, lifelong besties Barb (Annie Mumolo) and Star (Kristen Wiig) realize they are stuck in a rut. Throwing caution into the wind, the pair pack up their culottes for a sun-soaked adventure in Vista Del Mar, Florida, where they hope to cut loose and make some memories together. Barb and Star find excitement, romance, and musical delights on their spontaneous romp, until the sleepy beach town is threatened by a supervillain seeking their revenge.

A product of Groundlings improv alumnus Kristen Wiig and Irvine native Annie Mumolo, Barb and Star is a unique cult comedy, ready-made for the theatrical experience after originally debuting on a streaming platform.

“A tremendous supporting cast is rounded out with Jamie Dornan displaying surprising comedy chops and a commitment to silliness that I did not expect. Delightful musical numbers, cameos galore, and an absurd plotline make it endlessly delightful and a standout comedy.” – Sarah Brinks, Battleship Pretension

“The eye-searing tropical colors are overblown and everything's shot in a shallow depth of field. But the visual jokes are dense and the look works for the setting and comedic ethos, reflecting the junky tourist-trap aesthetic that Mumolo and Wiig celebrate. The film is the visual equivalent of a cheaply made, heinously charming and diverting trinket that one can buy at a beach hut boardwalk kiosk. And I mean that as a compliment.” – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

“The punchlines are regularly stupid, genuinely odd, and always unexpected […] Barb and Star may not be great cinema, but it is great kitsch, and, like the best cult hits, it is the sort of movie that will bloom with time and multiple viewings.” – Rachel Syme, The New Yorker
