Ocean City, N.J. featured in summer comedy movie

    Ocean City, N.J. will reap the benefits of a movie about a struggling playwright “forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother.”

    The shore town is featured in this summer’s “The Girl Most Likely,” a movie starring Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening and others.

    Ocean City Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michael Gillian told KYWthe audience can expect to see plenty of town favorites in the film, but he’s not sure yet which scenes made it past the cutting room floor.


    The movie will be out July 18 and the city will release a tourist map of all the featured destinations.
