“Bridesmaids” is one of the most iconic comedy films of the past decade. The raunchy comedy not only featured a breakout performance from Melissa McCarthy but also served as the launching point for Kristen Wiig’s Post-‘SNL’ career. And a large part of the credit can also be given to screenwriter, Annie Mumolo. Now, Wiig and Mumolo are combining forces yet again for another comedy, “Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar.”
As seen in the teaser trailer, ‘Barb & Star’ features Wiig and Mumolo in the cast as the two leading ladies. Well, you can’t actually see that in the trailer, as the two purposefully hide their faces…for some reason. But take our word for it, the film features those two actresses as the two leads, a couple of aging women that decide to go on vacation and hijinks ensue.
Joining Wiig and Mumolo in the cast are Jamie Dornan, Damon Wayans Jr., Fortune Feimster, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Rose Abdoo, Vanessa Bayer, Phyllis Smith, and Kwame Patterson. In addition to starring in the film, Wiig and Mumolo also wrote the script. ‘Barb & Star’ is directed by Josh Greenbaum.
