“Welcome to Me” Movie Review

4-Watertowers Movie Review(Wacky, Weird, Quirky)

Alice Klieg (Kristen Wiig) has won $86 million in the lottery.

welcome to me blogShe has borderline personality disorder and, since she is now rich, she stopped taking her meds and said goodbye to her psychiatrist.

Alice wants to host a TV talk show.  But this is a talk show unlike any other since Alice will talk about her. Her life, her thoughts, her struggles.

James Marsden runs a TV production firm. He tells Alice that it will cost $15 million to run 100 episodes of “Welcome to Me”. She pays it, and the TV show is born.

Unfortunately, being off her meds and not under doctors care, Alice spins out of control ignoring her best friends and falling deeper into mental illness.

“Welcome to Me” is a wonderfully quirky movie.  Kristen Wiig depicts the borderline personality disorder of Alice from near normal to off-the-wall to near normal again perfectly.  And Wiig is very beautiful as you can plainly see when she walks naked (full frontal) thru a gambling casino at the depth of her illness.

Not for kids. Rated “R” for very good reasons, but worth the cost of rental if you like quirky movies.

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this on Netflix. Thank you, Ryan!
