Last year, comedic powerhouse Kristen Wiig surprised everyone with her villainous twist as The Cheetah Wonder Woman 1984. Now the actress plays a villain again in Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar.. The film’s director Josh Greenbaum recently announced that Wiig had disappeared so completely into the role that many viewers could not even recognize her.
“One of the biggest compliments I think of [Kristen Wiig] Is that so, when we did early test screenings, there were so many people saying, “Who is this bad guy? She is so good. I can’t tell who the actress is. ‘And I think that’s a compliment to her role. My other fun, short story about it is that we had a guy who even worked on the movie and did some paint work at the beginning of the process. He worked on the film for three days. “
“Every day I checked in with him and he said, ‘Don’t tell me. I haven’t found out yet. I have to go to IMDB. But I want to find out who it is.’ He worked on it for three days and didn’t find out “It was Kristen. We’re doing a few tricks. We’re adding a little gap in our teeth … and a little denture in her nose, and obviously she’s actually wearing some interesting contact lenses. But the rest is just her performance and how she is completely off.” one character changes to the other. “
The film tells the story of best friends Barb, played by Annie Mumolo, and Star, played by Kristen Wiigwho live in Nebraska and who choose to vacation in Vista Del Mar, Florida. Unfortunately, vacation happiness is interrupted by the machinations of Sharon Gordon Fisherman, also played by Wiig.

In an earlier interview, Mumolo co-wrote the script Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar. shared with Wiig how their personal story enabled them to create the project from an intimate perspective.
“Kristen and I have written together since the Groundlings, and we’ve always been interested in these middle-aged female characters since we were in our early twenties. Always. These ladies! Girls! They probably come from many different places on our minds, but some are like your mother, others like your aunt and other family members, but more and more we realize how much they are to us. [Laughs] We are these people when we are in our private conversations. We have always enjoyed doing that. We loved to inhabit these people and give them a voice. We find so much fun and joy in these women. “
