Kristen Wiig practically reprises her unlucky-in-love act from Bridesmaids, only without the great jokes.

She plays Imogene, a once-promising New York playwright who's lost her mojo, her boyfriend, and her uptown status.

Directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, who made the terrific American Splendor, can't get the tone right and keep leaving the actors stranded in a scene requiring a punchline.

I'd watch it anyway for Wiig, who knows how to get a laugh without forcing it.
