A Saturday Night Live alumnus who’s best known for her film and TV collaborations with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler makes her directorial debut in Wine Country, a charming and appealingly messy Netflix comedy set in Napa Valley. Abby (Ms. Poehler) and her friends Catherine (Ana Gasteyer), Val (Paula Pell), Jenny (Emily Spivey) and Naomi (Maya Rudolph) have come to the wine country to celebrate Rebecca’s (Rachel Dratz) 50th birthday. Poehler’s film could most obviously be compared to Sideways, to which it makes a passing reference, but it’s less stagey, more grown up.
