She co-wrote the script for the 2011 comedy film Bridesmaids with Saturday Night Live cast member Kristen Wiig for Universal Studios. Judd Apatow produced the project, with Paul Feig directing. Mandate Pictures is currently developing an untitled comedy feature film written by Mumolo & produced by Dana Fox & Lorene Scafaria. The story will be about "3 girls who travel to New York to celebrate New Year's Eve only to be beset by a snowstorm en route, but are still intent on making it to the city before the celebratory ball drops". Mumolo said, "I wanted to write a story based on the things my friends & I are experiencing in our 30s that completely took us by surprise. It was important to me that the story really capture the issues & struggles we're going through in a funny & authentic way. We were stuck home on New Year's Eve, & everybody else got to go to parties, & we made a video that night. We were laughing so hard [watching it], and my friend said she was a 100% positive that she's never had as much fun as she did when she was 16. And I just thought about that a lot, how we go from 'I'm going to change the world' to 'I'm just trying to figure out where I fit in'." Nathan Kahane will executive produce the film, "seeing it as a complement to the other female-voiced comedies the company has done".
Mumolo's married to Tim Lovestedt & they have 2 children.
