1. What Is 'barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar' About?

The movie is practically a follow-up film to Bridesmaids, since it’s written by Wiig and Mumolo. Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar tells the story of two best friends, Barb (Mumolo) and Star (Wiig), who embark on a wild road trip. The problem? This is the first time they’re leaving their small Midwestern town, and they’re in no way prepared for what’s to come.

According to Nathan Kahane (president of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group), “Barb and Star are true cultural icons in the making, and as they embark on this hilarious adventure, we are more than thrilled to partner with Kristen, Annie and Gloria Sanchez on what we know is going to be a great ride.”
