The cast includes Kristen Wiig, Annie Mumolo and Jamie Dornan, among others. The movie follows the story of two best friends, Barb and Star, who live in the small town of Soft Rock, Nebraska. The two friends have been inseparable for years, working together at the same furniture store and spending all their free time together. However, when their furniture store closes down and Barb is laid off, the two friends decide to embark on an adventurous vacation to Vista Del Mar - a beach resort in Florida.

On their way to Vista Del Mar, Barb and Star meet a handsome stranger, Edgar Paget, played by Jamie Dornan. Edgar is in Vista Del Mar on a mission to carry out the evil plans of his boss, Sharon Gordon Fisherman, played by Kristen Wiig, who is plotting to destroy the vacation spot using swarms of genetically modified killer mosquitoes called "mosquitosoids". Edgar was sent to find a way to release them into the population.

Meanwhile, Barb and Star arrive at Vista Del Mar and quickly immerse themselves in the tropical paradise, getting a makeover and making new friends, including a friendly bus driver named Yoyo (Reyn Doi). They also find themselves drawn to Edgar, but they soon learn that he has a secret mission to complete, and they begin to suspect that he might not be the trustworthy man he appears to be.
