What You Need To Know:

WELCOME TO ME stars Kristen Wiig as Alice Klieg, a bi-polar woman who wins the lottery. Alice has borderline personality disorder. Most days she does the same thing, including watching Oprah and playing the lottery. After years of playing, Alice wins 86 million dollars. Alice decides to use the money create her own Reality TV program based on her life. After a few episodes, the show starts to gain traction. Eventually, however, Alice gets a big head and goes off her meds.

WELCOME TO ME is a forgettable comedy with a strong pagan worldview. The comical storyline could have been promising, but the movie goes overboard and isn’t really funny. Once again Kristen Wiig plays the awkward character trying to make friends. Her character is completely focused on herself throughout the movie’s entire story, though at the very end she does become a more giving person. WELCOME TO ME also has lots of strong foul language, other lewd content and substance abuse. There are also multiple scenes of dogs being neutered. Media-wise moviegoers won’t give a big welcome to WELCOME TO ME.

Once Alice gets screen time she is hooked and asks the station if she can have her own show. The head of the studio, Rich, tells Alice that it will cost her $15 million for her own show. The show they create is all about Alice, the day and the life of Alice.
