Recommended. Better than the trailers made me think it would be. Went to see it in large part because I know Ellie Kemper from college, and think she's terrifically talented and has a huge, huge career ahead of her. And my wife and I both thought the movie really worked and was very entertaining. I can nitpick-- it felt to me like there must have been tons of scenes that were filmed and didn't make it in-- the movie jumps from scene to scene, there are plot threads that are established and then dropped, the emotional journey of some of the characters didn't quite make sense to me-- but in the end, it didn't really matter, because not only was a lot of the movie very funny, but it did hang together for me, I thought Kristin Wiig was really terrific in the role, the script was smart, the big moments were earned, and the whole thing just really worked. Great, very winning performance by Chris O'Dowd, who I've seen in the (terrific) British version of The It Crowd, a sitcom about computer help-desk workers that I highly recommend.... Can't imagine this doesn't end up very high on a lot of end-of-year lists of the best comedies.
