Funny Actors Save Bad Script

There's no denying that the two leads have chemistry and talent. There's plenty of physical comedy and the actors perform with terrific timing. What's missing here is a good story and good lines for them to deliver. Don't expect any memorable lines or scenes. The movie is funny because Bateman and MaCarthy are funny and good together. Unfortunately, that's only enough for those in the mood to enjoy it, but not anyone with a discerning eye.

This was a great movie! Very funny. Both Melissa and Jason did a great job. It does make me wonder how easy it is for identity thieves to steal someone's identity. Pretty scary how much it can potentially destroy someone's life. I sure hope the police are more helpful than what they were portrayed in this movie. Yikes! Throughout the movie, I could hear a 3 year old little boy ask his mommy why certain things were happening. THIS IS NOT A KIDS MOVIE. COME ON PEOPLE...SERIOUSLY!!! DON'T TAKE YOUR SMALL CHILDREN TO A MOVIE THAT SHOWS NUDITY AND CLEARLY IS FOR ADULT AUDIENCES ONLY. ITS NOT FAIR TO THOSE AROUND YOU WHO HAVE TO HEAR YOU TRY TO EXPLAIN IT AND ITS MOST DEFINITELY NOT FAIR TO YOUR INNOCENT CHILD TO BE EXPOSED TO INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT!!! HIRE A SITTER!!

We went in a group of 4 and I was laughing so hard in parts that I was crying! Totally worth seeing at the theater- Melissa McCarthy is so outrageous compared to Jason Bateman's straight laced character! We had a lot of fun and were glad we went. Can't wait for The Heat to hit the theaters as we'll be there!

Maybe it's my sense of humor, but I thought this was hilarious. Thought Jason and Melissa were awesome together, and it reminded you how easy it is to lose your identity!

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
