Kristen Wiig is back in a young-woman-hits-bottom comedy that looks like a saving grace for those who are tired of sending “Bridesmaids” gifs to their put-together friends and family to explain their emotional and or financial states.
The plot, as seen in the trailer, seems like a series of events that many young women fear, not far off from the tag line for HBO’s “Girls” (“Almost getting it kind of together”): keeping life in order, while coping with financial troubles, relationship issues and the general difficulties of being a single female in this cruel world.
Here’s a breakdown, in gif form:
A dream job opens. Everyone is complimenting your excellent accomplishments.
Date a perfect, socially acceptable guy.
Lose job and/or break up with boyfriend. Have mental breakdown and move back in with parents.
Panic even more because you know what living at home will be like.
Confront issues with parents.
Start having fun again and fall in love with guy who may or may not be appropriate for you.
Overcome emotional issues and begin putting pieces back together.
