Let’s take a trip to the shimmering waters of Vista Del Mar. The writers behind Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, give fans another comedy Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar. The comedy is from director Josh Greenbaum (Becoming Bond).
Lionsgate dropped the debut trailer that stars Wiig and Mumolo as Barb and Star and announced that the movie would forgo its expected theatrical debut and instead will premiere on Feb. 12, 2021, on premium VOD. The theatrical release date was planned for July 16, 2020, but it was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. It doesn’t come as a surprise as Hollywood continues to struggle as cases of COVID-19 keep spiking.
The comedy follows Wiig and Mumolo as childhood best friends, and they embark on a life-long journey as they plan to leave their small Midwestern town for the first time to go on vacation in Vista Del Mar, Florida. They soon find themselves caught in a villain’s plot to destroy everyone in town.
The cast also includes Jamie Dornan as a spy who gets trapped between the powers of good and evil, with Damon Wayans Jr. (New Girl), writer and comedian Fortune Feimster (The Mindy Project), Vanessa Bayer (Saturday Night Live) and Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids).
