My boyfriend and I loved it! So many comedies have come out recently that try just too hard (e.g. Movie 43), thank goodness not this one! Effortlessly funny, and wonderful characterization really makes this film a Must Go!
Melissa absolutely makes this movie -- not once does it turn too mushy, and the ending is actually pretty realistic!

Thought this movie was absolutely hilarious. A must see --- for ADULTS.
We went on a Saturday afternoon to see the movie. It is "R" rated. I was extremely disappointed seeing about ten (10) children at the theater and felt very uncomfortable when some scenes were showing. I guess these parents are the ones who wonder why their children get into trouble. Shame on them. I think that the movie theaters should not allow anyone in an "R" rated movie under the age of 17, even if they are accompanied by an adult.

Melissa McCarthy was great in Bridesmaids and she brings the same character to this movie. Unfortunately the gags that worked in a brief scene don't make for an hour and a half film. She's simply vulgar, un attractive in personality, and its hard to find the pushed upon sympathy the film tried for at the end. Supporting cast is great and Jason Bateman makes any film worth seeing. I tried to like this movie but it simply wasn't funny: it was vulgar. A decent Redbox rent but I'm disappointed we spent money to see this at the theater.

The previews/trailers for this movie show you the only & every good part. I expected a much better comedic script from a movie starting McCarthy. While the acting is pretty good, it doesn't matter if the movie is just plain stupid. This film seems to be filled with juvenile humor as well. If you're dying to watch it, rent it for as cheap ad possible. Its not worth the doe.
