The best way to describe Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar is like if you combined the absurdist, nonsensical, silly nature of the early days of Spongebob Squarepants, the light charm of a Muppets movie and a dash of Austin Powers played towards the late-‘00s/early-‘10s SNL crowd. In simple terms, this is a live-action cartoon and I mean that in the best way imaginable. We don’t get buddy comedies like this these days where the leads aren’t yelling their punchlines, bickering too much, or getting on your nerves. Barb and Star have an inseparable two-peas-in-a-pod bond and it’s adorable. It’s very clear that this was a passion project for Wiig and Mumolo; it’s evident by the script and, most importantly, their performances. Wiig and Mumolo bounce off each other with chemistry that helps you buy into their friendship and their characters. At first, you think they’re simple caricatures of the white suburban lifestyle in their own bizarre, satirically silly way, but they’re actually genuine, lovable characters who are as charming as Bill and Ted.
