“Bridesmaids” stars and writers Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo have reunited for a new comedy called “Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar,” and their big ’80s haircuts and shrill Midwestern accents that sound like something out of “Fargo” seems like a character that Wiig has been waiting to dust off since her “SNL” days.
“Barb & Star” will skip theaters to debut as a premium video on demand rental on February 14. The new trailer doesn’t exactly give a hint at the story — in fact we never even get to see Barb and Star’s faces, but it’s about two best friends who leave their small Midwest town for the very first time for a tropical vacation. Along the way their friendship will deepen and they’ll even try and overcome a villainous plot.
Suffice it to say, Barb and Star are very excited about appearing in their own movie trailer.
“I like how they’re little movies about another movie before a different movie,” Wiig says in the teaser. “But I wouldn’t want to give anything away about our movie, especially our faces!”
Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo both co-wrote the film as well, and they star along with Jamie Dornan, Damon Wayans Jr., Fortune Feimster, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Rose Abdoo, Vanessa Bayer, Phyllis Smith and Kwame Patterson.
“Barb & Star” is directed by Josh Greenbaum, and it’s produced by Will Ferrell’s Gloria Sanchez and Stellie, with Ferrell, Adam McKay, Wiig, Mumolo, Jessica Elbaum and Margot Hand all producing. Lionsgate is releasing.
