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.

It was funny and cetainly gave me some laughs but I would not recomment bringing children as some of the scenes are very graphic and not for youngsters. I saw people there with kids and thought to myself that was not a very good idea. I have a friend that went to see it with her 12 year old daughter and she said she never should have taken her.

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.

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.

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.
