Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar
The writing team behind blockbuster comedy ‘Bridesmaids’ return with this tale of two single ladies seeking fun, frolics, a deadly mission to save the world, and all that a Florida beach holiday can offer.
Barb and Star have been friends for years, living in a sleepy Midwestern town where little ever happens. Which might be why they decide to go for broke on their first holiday together, choosing the wild, colourful world of Florida’s Vista Del Mar. No sooner have they arrived, they find themselves plunged into a mad villain’s plot to kill everyone in town. Writers Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig, who also play the leads, find the perfect balance between laughing at and with their characters, their idiocy out of water matched by their resilience in the most cataclysmic situations.
