“Girl Most Likely” (PG-13, 103 minutes, Lionsgate): Kristen Wiig delivers another spaced-out star turn in “Girl Most Likely,” a picaresque romance of self-discovery that delivers a near-constant flow of small delights until veering too far into screwball preposterousness. Wiig plays Imogene, who’s introduced in a prologue as a precocious young actress who, when she’s uttering the line “There’s no place like home” in “The Wizard of Oz,” turns to the director to say, “This just isn’t working for me.” Flash forward 20 years and the grown-up Imogene is an aspiring playwright whose early ambition has been thwarted by the comfort and distraction offered by her wealthy boyfriend.Eventually, events transpire to send Imogene back home to Ocean City, N.J., a place she has been running from all her adult life and where she’s now forced to live with her mother, Zelda (Annette Bening), a compulsive gambler; her troubled but sweet brother, Ralph (Christopher Fitzgerald); and her mom’s boyfriend, George (Matt Dillon), who insists he’s in the CIA and has a coffee mug to prove it.
