Mumolo and Wiig star as Barb and Star, respectively, two Midwestern BFFs tired of their boring lives -- and decide to have the vacation of their dreams in Vista Del Mar, Florida.

How Are Elephants Keeping Cool During the Heat Wave?
How does an elephant keep cool during a heat wave? Zookeepers at the Phoenix Zoo have plenty of tricks up their sleeves.
