Not every movie is an Oscar contender... This movie delivered plenty of laughs and some heartfelt / tender moments. We are already big fans of the cast, most especially Melissa .... She is a great physical and visually expressive comic. Yes, these movies are a bit predictable, but there is enough fun here to make this a very enjoyable movie.

My girlfriend is a big Melissa McCarthy fan and I've loved Jason Bateman's comedic skills forever. This movie was NO disappointment!
First, I loved the way they used a woman to steal a man's identity based on his first name.
Second, there were some wonderful lines (thank-you, writers!). Jason's "I'm just a decent guy" naiveté played well, especially when he mentioned his sock money.
I suffer with Systemic Lupus and severe Fibromyalgia, and both times when Melissa used the Fibro as an excuse/distraction, I laughed so hard I nearly came out of my seat. "Ow! My Fibromyalgia! It's going right down my back!" LOL. This worked comedically, because the illness doesn't hit you that way.
Finally, this story and the characters had a fantastic arc. Near the end, they both realised something crucial about themselves and the other, so the ending was very sweet. But you don't see the final comedy coming at all. GO SEE IT! The theatre was roaring. You won't be sorry.

On the end family visting while in prison. Told the girls not to go in the wood or forest because of a bear with cornrows. This is a radical slur. Bad

Worst movie i've seen in a while. I couldn't wait for it to be over, and still went to the restroom like 3 times during the movie just because I was so bored!!!

The movie was certainly funny and at times took you for an emotional curve. The plot was not truly realistic but definitely morally sound. I recommend seeing it; it was worth the buck!
