The movie was mildly entertaining, but I would not recommend anyone rush to see it. It was basically a rehash of previous films of the same type. Jason Bateman's talents were wasted....this was basically a movie showcasing Mellisa McCarthy; who was way funnier in "Bridesmaids". It also tries to paint very bad people as victims of society. Not a good lesson for children!

With great comedic performances from both of the leads this laugh filled romp it was surprising to find that it also tugged on my heart strings as well. Melissa McCarthy is a brilliant actor who brings a wonderful depth to a character that could have easily been two dimensional. I highly enjoyed this film and recommend it to anyone who's looking for a movie that delivers the laughs with substance.

Overall, the movie was funny at times, but the bad language was completely unnecessary at parts and it could have been even funnier without it. They did, however do a good job of mixing an emotional plot with comedy that could realistically be the lives of several people.

It was funny and sad at the same time.
You start out hating the thief but she grows on you during the film.
It was definitely worth seeing.

Melissa McCarthy is hysterical is this movie! There were four of us and we were laughing out loud for a good portion of the time....It was a bit dragged out towards the end, perhaps could have been about 20 minutes shorter, but it was worth the wait for the great ending!
