I really enjoyed this movie. I thought that Tina Fey did a great job with it. I loved Lily Tomlin's character and she too was wonderful.

Tina Fey turns out to be a competent serious actress in addition to being able to do slapstick comedy. Perhaps I was in a bad mood when I walked in but I was expecting a lighter story with more laughs. At least that's what the trailers had led me to expect. Overall, not a bad way to spend 2 hours but I didn't walk away feeling better than I walked in.

I love Tina Fey and Paul Rudd but, there is no chemistry and the story line was all over the place, if your curious spend your money at Redbox.

This is a modestly entertaining film with a basic formulaic screenplay. It's well executed and includes a surprisingly long over-due screen reappearance of Lily Tomlin. Sadly, Lily's character is unsubstantial and as a consequence, her performance here is little more than a cameo. While there's nothing much new here, the onscreen chemistry between Fey and Rudd is warm and believable. The story's a little weak but the total package is enjoyable enough to warrant a matinee ticket, even a DVD or steam rental. See it. You won't be disappointed.
