Synopsis of the film
Best friends go on an adventure of a lifetime. They decide to leave their small Midwestern town for the first time…ever. The lifelong friends are heading to Vista Del Mar, Florida. What will happen on their trip?
Kristen Wiig discusses her character Star
I think we came up with the title first. I think that’s how you’re supposed to do it?
We actually like being them more than we like being ourselves. They’re so unaffected and positive! Annie and I never write from the standpoint of making fun. We want to celebrate them. Barb and Star are each other’s life—it’s this very sweet, dependent relationship they have. And they kind of need to go through a hiccup.
Annie Mumolo discusses her character Barb
We would write whole scenes that were supposed to be about Kristen’s character, but we went on these tangents that were Lillian’s (Maya’s character) mom’s dialogue. Like, she’d just start talking about Costco. And we’d just always talk like that, Barb and Star are part of an underrepresented group of women who have their own passions and dreams. We wanted to bring them to life and get inside of them and take them on the adventure they deserve. Vista Del Mar is the ultimate vacation spot for singles in their ‘middle’ years.
