strugglinforanickname - totally hated it...
i didn't even get through the first hour...i shut it off. and i love Kristin Whig. just a terrible waste of money.
sevitale - Amazing, this was pure camp on steroids!
I love Kristen Wiig, so this movie was a must-see, but I have to admit this was a happy surprise.
This movie is a mix of a children's Disney movie, a musical, a classical comedy, an SNL sketch, and an episode of drag race all together mixed with a good amount of glitter, camp, and nostalgia.
A warning, if you don't, at least, giggle at the first scene with the paperboy you should probably stop watching, this movie is not for you.
I was giggling all the time and I am a 57 years old grown man, but I love musical theater, children's movies and I am not scared to enjoy something as extravagant as this movie.
Barb and Star are great and compelling characters, the movie is well thought, and the jokes are definitely over (over, over, over) the top.
If you are still a child in the body of a grown-up, you should watch it and you will enjoy every second of it.
This movie will become (it's probably already is) a camp classic.
xoxochad - Agree with others this is a acquired taste.
If you don’t like Tim and Eric, Spy Kids or Master of Disguise.
You will hate this movie.
It’s a odd mix of those films mixed with two women stuck in the 80s.
It mixes weird almost mind numbingly bad story and humor with eclectic eccentric presentation and plot.
However for me, the whole time I giggled and it worked somehow.
It was SO BAD and so weird and wrong it was good.
This movie is for feminine friendships that know a sisterly bond and absurd humor that can go awry.
I have my own Star to my Barb who I can speak complete nonsense to in the same way.
So that I got entirely.
So although it’s awful.
I relate to it and understand it.
While the random, immature and childish plot or humor at times is so goofy and confusing you can’t help but laugh at the absurdity or stupidity like a episode of spongebob or slapstick humor.
They tie into adult themes and humor in a round about way by elaborating and being consistent with the writing and dialogue in the story which adds to another level of humor that’s more my taste.
I didn’t know what to expect with this movie.
I came in expecting a wedding crashes type of female comedy with barb and star characters and I was wrong this movie wasn’t predictable in the least but the ending really tied it up neatly for me and made it complete.
I walked away with tears in my eyes from laughing at the end.
The world needs a movie like this right now.
The world needs to laugh. I’m actually really happy I paid for this and I saw it. It’s definitely unique and uncommon to see movies this bad.
Like it was so painfully bad but I could not stop watching or laughing at times.
Kristin Wiig is amazing as usual.
Just don’t walk into this expecting anything.
The only thing you should expect is to be completely confused unimpressed but you walk away STILL completely confused but laughing at the goofy concept of this movie and how it succeeds anyway in at least making you smile or laugh once and bringing you joy.
That’s what a comedy does and this succeeded.
For all the girlfriends/boyfriends/whatever who have a barb and star bond.
This movie is for you.
You’ll get it.
TRodmonster - Very funny! Random and absurd! Loved it.
Really loved this quirky, hilarious and absurd goof romp! It's a bit difficult to classify, but it's laugh-out-loud entertaining. Well-crafted, genre-pushing story with fun attention to what they were trying to achieve ... plus, the actors are nicely committed, and you really fall for the leads, becoming very vested in their story--let Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo do more movies!!!!...a nice coming-of-middle-age story? a journey to self...discovery? Got their grooves back...and how!... I want to go on vacation with them! And, Jamie Dornanis really good playing just this side of over the line with his character...
Waldo632 - Silly Fun
Don’t take it serious, it’s almost like a female version of Austin Powers 😂 silly, all over the place and just all around zany fun
JCar2007 - Comedy gold
It won’t be for everyone but I laughed from the moment it started till the post credits scene. Give it a shot!
RHawk72 - Unfunny Trash
The only thing I am thankful about with sitting thru 1/2 of the movie is that it was a ‘Free to Me’ viewing and I didn’t blow up $19.99 to attempt to watch this 2 hour long unfunny and random skit.
LookWhatDrewDrew - Good characters, bad story
I loved the characters of Barb and Star. Had the focus of this movie been about them going on vacation and learning to have fun separately, I probably would have loved it. Unfortunately, the subplot of the evil mastermind and the killer mosquitos was too over the top and frankly, not that funny.
Chris F! :) - Omg so awful
I love these 2 leading ladies but this movie was totally awful!!! Such a waste of money!
straight talking mom - AWFUL
Really, I want my $20 back. This movie made NO SENSE. If I could give it NO STARS, I would. How disappointing. Ugh.
Firemedic537 - Mind numb
Save your $20. It was boring, all over the place and did I mention boring. There are a ton of cameos. I was more interested in figuring out the cameos than the movie.
mjhyneman - Barb and Star: They are what they are
Not the greatest thing but fun. The hype is weird since the flick is thin but I am sure it will become like Anchorman in terms of a cult following.
DVR415 - Barb
Horrible save your money 💵 this movie is straight trash 🗑
katey_did - I Really enjoyed it!
Sure it may have been corny in some places but it was a good fun movie!!! I will watch again! Anyone who didn’t like it has no sense of humor! Enjoy! 💜
murphsb - Horrible
Love KW and Bridesmaids was a 10, this is a 1 at best. Terrible knock off of Austin Powers, laughed maybe twice in the movie. Who is giving this high ratings? Makes me suspect of the evaluation system on Apple. Do yourself a favor and save your $.
Johnyrocket_86 - Hilarious, random and enjoyable
Really enjoyed watching this. The humor is a bit absurd, but overall a really fun time! Plenty of LOL moments.
Jbone1924 - Liken SNL.....
But even worse. Barb n Star is a bad SNL skit that ran ab hour and 42 minutes too long. It was painfully experience and is the last time I will let me wife near the remote.
Seanski - THIS. IS. SO. STUPID!
... in the BEST possible way. It’s Dumb & Dumber, Austin Powers, every idiotic Adam Sandler film from the 90s, but from Kristen Wiig’s brilliant brain. Just watch it!
FilmBuff86 - Odd but hilarious!
Kristen and Annie are fantastic in this movie together as our leads, Barb and Star! Two lifelong best friends, who end up in Florida on one wacky vacation adventure!
It’s funny, it has heart, it’s charming, and it has musical numbers! This movie really has it all. I was smiling the entire time!1
Can’t wait to own it on physical media and revisit it.
skelekdmddnx - Eh
I expected it to be funnier, it was ok there were a few scenes i laughed at, but they break out into song a couple of times. Funniest thing was Trish (not Paytas) at the ending of the movie
CubanRabbit - No, just no....
I may be in the wrong for having an expectation but I was expecting Bridesmaid level comedy. The fantasy world kept taking me out of the film. I laughed a couple times but, meh.
Wcasl1 - I LOVED THIS!
It is dumb and ridiculous and that’s why it’s great! We escaped for two hours and enjoy this silly comedy. Wmcasl1
nathanalf - Absurdly Hilarious
Over the top, ridiculous in the absolute best possible way. Rewatched it three times within the 48 hour rental and it got better each time
KSully54 - It’s perfect!
Barb and Star giving us laugh while we quarantine. Absolutely hilarious!
Proudwife09 - Save Yourself
Don’t just don’t! Save your money and just don’t! 🥱😓🥱
Hammervision - Instant cult classic
Comedies as good as this come around only once or twice a decade. Ranks right up there with Anchorman, Popstar, and Austin Powers.
imcmoc - So silly, stupid, and amazing!
Just what I needed. I want more Barb and Star!
W4gm - It’s just fun
I can’t stop watching it. It’s just silly fun and an art piece.
popreview - Utter disappointment
Too much talent wasted.
David Call - It’s Absurd, and That’s the Point
I love that all the low rating descriptions of why this film sucked are like a play by play of why we loved it so much. Indeed it IS just like an SNL skit ran long and was given carte blanche on how ridiculous it could become, and they nailed it. As quotable as the day is long. 5 stars for Barb and Star!
notoriousvic - Delightful
Easy viewing. Nice sunny movie during a very cold winter. Much needed soul douche! 😁
Gringa Novelera - Just For Laughs! Lots of Them!
“Barb & Star...” is a very funny movie, and very clever. Nothing is really supposed to make much sense, and it doesn’t, and that’s why I loved it! It’s just silly. And who couldn’t use a big dose of silly?!
KW & AM are just perfect.
I loved watching them just talk endlessly about everything, everywhere.
With so many movies and series streaming now that are sad, dark stories about sad, dark people, I’ve had enough!
I want to go with Barb & Star to the Pastel
paradise of Vista Del Mar and have jewel-colored cocktails before a trip to the buffet.
And then buy crappy souvenirs on the beach!
Hang out at the pool!
Meet a handsome man who is a mystery, but they can’t stop talking long enough to even realize what a mystery he is!
Plus, more than anything, I want to belong to a “Talking Club.”
Watch the movie and you’ll see what I mean.
Watch the movie and you’ll have a blast!!
Mmamster - Ridiculously Funny
You need to watch this movie a couple times because there are so many jokes in it. Each time I watch it, it gets funnier. So good!
clw775 - Omg.... what a ride!!!
I kinda want to hate this movie, but I just can’t! It’s a great vacation for the soul, you just have to go with it!
Ashley Zaragoza - Everything I needed
With all the madness going on in the world, I needed silliness, I needed weirdness, and I needed laughs. This movie gave me all of that and more. It may not be for everyone but there’s something in it for everyone, whether you’re into musical numbers, talking animals, or a fun airplane scene.
Angasaur - So good
RobDotson - So so good
I wasn’t sure what to think about this from seeing the trailer. The two women seemed like a mashup of my mom and the kooky girls from drama in high school. But seriously, after the last year and this horrible weather, this movie was just what I needed. I don’t think I’ve laughed this hard in a very long time. This movie is all kinds of absurd brilliance! Rent it watch it love it.
DMluvsyou - HILARIOUS!!! 😂😂😂
We absolutely loved it and laughed our butts off!! Kristen Wiig is a goddess!!! 🥰😂
nicholas_schnerre - Kristen Wiig is the queen!
Kristen Wiig never misses!
cuc tbbgvchfcccgtffbfbuctwcff - FhCFvatQG fr
BttT T you g yc r fh uhut
BobChiverton - Female Dumb and Dumber.
Awful. Just awful.... couldn’t watch to the end.
Kobe & Stan the Man - LOL
If you need to switch your brain off for a funny comedy, this is your movie. I found myself laughing throughout the total runtime. Random & hilarious at the same time. BRAVO
trouble_some - Just good, plain, weird, fun!
So let me start by saying: This movie is probably not everyone’s cup of tea.
It is weird, stupid, and just plain fun!! So many laugh out loud moments: Spontaneous outbreaks of song, hunky eye candy and parachute Koolats; what’s not to love!
Heather_mooney - Loveee
MCKINLEY TITAN - Just What We Need Right Now!
Funny, Stupid, and Totally Enjoyable! It’s so quirky and weird and naughty and innocent. There’s talking crabs and musical numbers and even a scene with a possible throuple. It reminded me of Airplane! and McGruber mixed with Austin Powers and Bridesmaids. Loved it!
carsonhusky - Not very good considering the cast
Should have been better.
pippiski4 - Smiling the whole time!
The characters remind me so much of my Midwestern aunts😂❤️ Love this movie so much...lots of laughs for sure!
Magic0214 - BANANAPANTS in the best way
Comedy doesn’t take wild swings like this anymore. Everything has to be so broad that sometimes the jokes don’t land. This is perfectly chaotic that had me rolling the entire time.
SuciaGirl - Hilarious!!
I need to watch again as we were laughing so much I missed some of the dialogue! It is amazing!
Gww425 - Don’t waste your $
We were hoping for another Bridesmaids movie but wow, this was awful! It was like watching 2 SNL Target ladies breaking into song awfully along with Christian Grey in 1980s Key West.

jakeowens - Wow
Well we had to pause this movie continuously because it was sooooooo funny we kept missing everything. If you love the quirkiness of Kristen Wiig you will LOVE this movie. 1000 thumbs up.
Colleen Gareau - Barb and Star Bore in Vista del Mar
I wasn't expecting it to be as good as Bridesmaids, but I wasn't expecting to be bored. Jamie Dornan did a good job with what he had to work with. Overall, the story and characters were too cliched for this to be entertaining. I wish I could write something more positive, but after 45 minutes, I was checking the time, wondering when something engaging might begin. Even with that, I watched to the end as I am a fan of Kristin Wiig's and was hoping the movie would redeem itself. It did not.
edelplopez - Silly and entertain
Another beautiful silly comedy! Wig is always amazing and the cast shines! Beautiful!
elyse displayed - Burb
Congratulations to all off you guys

And they are arbitrary
LoveJadynMaria - Innocent fun
Such a great laugh. Definitely have to go in with an open mind as it is hilariously unusual and stupid in the best way. Also, nice to see new films still get released during lockdown. Happy I rented, and will pay again once it’s fully released to own.
pygar, last of the ornithentropes - Fun
It’s very silly and very fun.
loca&saba - Weird and pointless
The story was very weird and not very entertaining! I’d have switched off if I hadn’t paid so much for the privilege. Don’t waste your money.
5imon - Silly, stupid fun
In the same vein of Kath & Kim, it’s a silly little movie but a lot of fun.
lumleylad - Very very funny
I’ve just watched this and if u love Bridesmaids u will love this . It is fantastic and very funny .
Eoin Earley - The best trip
You could drop the plot and just watch these two enjoy a holiday together.
LummersD - Not Funny
At all. It’s like a SNL sketch that wasn’t humorous in the first place, stretched out indefinitely. I like Kristen Wiig, but this is utterly naff. The wife went to bed 20 minutes into it. I sat on the sofa and looked at my phone for the duration. It’s not even bad - just dull and boring. Which is far worse.
Eddie_Plummer - Hilarious, especially at the moment!
Kristin just gets better and better! We laughed non stop from the start! 😂

RileyB 0807 - Don’t waste your money
Very disappointing. Thought with Kristen Wig being in the movie it would be a really funny movie, but it is terrible. So bad. Ugh I want my money back.
ryanisafreak - So dumb in the BEST way🏝💓
How could anyone hate a movie by the women who wrote Bridesmaids???
You place pops - SO Bad
Great actors and a few laughs, but a very stupid premise. With all of the stars, we hoped for something with a real plot and jokes. Save your money...
xxxxnnbmajsieierk - Bar and star go to vista Del Mar
Worst movie EVER. Not sure how anyone can connect their name to this. I would give it 0 stars if I could!
CJ1030 - Not funny at all
I really wanted to love this movie. I’m a big fan of Kristen Wiig but it just wasn’t good. It feels like I was robbed of $20 tbh
TinaHPfan - So cute!
Kristen and Annie were adorable and hilarious! Just a lot of fun.
rjevernham - Pure Hilarious Escapism
Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar is a coral pastel colored dose of escapism🐚🌊☀️🦀🐠🦐 Bizarre, hilarious, and an absolute blast😄🎬👍🏻👍🏻 I don’t know if this film is for everyone’s taste, but all I will say is I enjoyed taking the trip to Vista Del Mar with Barb and Star!
KevCarter42 - Great Fun
Awesome feel good goofy movie. Guaranteed to make your day
SheCritiquesIt - Watched it THREE A TIMES on HBO Max and...
We absolutely loved it. I think the problem is seeing Pedro Pascal as a villain when these days we see him as the last action hero known as the Mandalorian in the HUGELY successful hit on Disney+. It takes a wee bit longer to get started & the way they intro Steve is a wee bit strange but honestly It's a solid 3.75 stars & we can't wait until it comes out in digital 4K UHD FOR PURCHASE so we can add it to our digital library!!!!
ipad_two - Wish it had been funnier
Had high hopes but it wasn’t that funny and it kind of dragged on.
brenjaminbarker - Dumb
This was so dumb I’m glad I was at home so I could drink. Jamie Dornan was so miscast with no charisma whatsoever.
Superhero145 - The vacation movie we all need!!!!
I was nervous going into this movie with thinking that it gonna be a bad movie and it wasn’t I was so happy that it wasn’t barb and star go to vista Del Mar is a big surprise especially having Kristen wiig and her bridesmaids co writer Annie Mumolo as the main 2 leads plus they wrote the script as well with a hilarious performance Jamie dorman make this a vacation worth taking if you someone who love bridesmaids or any friendship vacation comedy then I highly recommend it define must buy!!!!
ALSO DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT THE PRICE IT ANNOYING, IF YOU CANNOT RENT IT AT THE PRICE THAT IT IS NOW THEN DON’T LEAVE A REVIEW!!! Wait for it cheaper!!!
MWD7584 - Disappointing
I thought this was going to be a funny movie about two middle-aged women going on the trip of their lives together. I still don’t what to think of it. They could have done without the random musical scenes and strange villain storyline.
Adam125 - Don’t even bother
Omg what garbage.
kkogler - Stupidly hilarious!
This film was ridiculously silly and so funny. The writing and the jokes were outrageous. I loved the escapism and it was the perfect Friday night move (with wine!).
Ep533 - So funny!!!!
Weird, crazy and so much fun! Be prepared to laugh!!!!! A must watch!
willugraceme - Hilarious
Kristen and Annie have done it again. Excellent film!
