A group of women whose friendship started when they worked at the same pizza joint in their youth get together for a holiday to wine country for a birthday, and over the trip, their weaknesses and resentments are exposed. Oh, but it’s super funny.
With this cast, it would have been almost impossible to not have a lot of real belly laughs – Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Maya Rudolph, Paula Pell, Emily Spivey and Jason Schwartzman. Tina Fey was in there too, but while all the other characters felt pretty much real and relatable (for the most part), Fey’s character was like a character from SNL, and stood out as being overly comic.
The structure was fairly predictable, with each character facing themselves, lots of passionate (and, at times, drunken) speeches. But despite that, I really enjoyed it. Sentimental and lovely and really, just a lot of fun.
